So for everyone that somehow hasn't seen or heard of it, BASE skiing is the act of jumping off insanely huge cliffs and then tossing out a parachute so that you survive. reputably started by James Bond, but picked up recently by Shane and JT among other skiers.
What do you guys think of this? Personally, i think that BASE Skiing was cool when it started, but now it might be getting kinda stagnant, as shown in Yearbook. BASE skiing was really impressive, but the effect has worn off, and I'd rather see someone land a backflip off a 60 footer than a double front off a 1000 footer with a parachute.
I know BASE skiing is really risky and dangerous, but having a parachute is kinda like an easy way out. I dont think that its going to lead to a revolution like twin tips did, and that all the hype that its getting and all the playtime it gets in MSP's movies is really over the top. Sticking drops without a parachute may be old and classic, but to me, thats what skiing big lines and backcountry is really about.
