Time for fun. Speed riding uses a very small paraglider-with-skis combination that just about glides but does it at a very high speed. The point is to scream down impossibly sloped mountains, jump/flying over rocks, crevasses and obstacles. Antoine Montant, flies over a huge avalanche on the North face of Aiguille du Midi in Chamonix. This sequence has been awarded the Best P.O.V (point of view) Award in Aspen in the latest Powder Video Awards.
