Caught on film.

Pretty impressive climb. Even more impressive descent.

Kudos.

Wow. I would love to see the whole film.

Not sure if people saw this on the linked website though:

In fact, the descent was skied in two parts at different times of the year. Helicopters were used.
Still an impressive feat, but its lame that the film makers still bill this as if its a single descent Unsure

^^^That.

And the dialogue and music is just a bit over the top.

Long discussion about this on TGR a while back.
