Watch: 1st Ski-BASE Jump Sets World Record From Mont Blanc Summit

On June 24, Matthais Giraud set two records in one jump: the highest ski-BASE jump and the first ski-BASE of the Alps Trilogy.

It took 2 days for Giraud to reach the summit of Mont Blanc. And, in a feat of both alpinism and ski-BASE jumping, he managed to pull off both aforementioned records. Previous jumps on the Matterhorn and Eiger set him up to complete the Trilogy, and Ivresse Films assisted with the cinematography for this final hurdle.
