Scary to do, but fun to watch. What more could you ask for in a short and sweet Jackson Hole backcountry ski vid?
This video series is not for the anxious. In the first vid (above), professional big-mountain skier Owen Leeper calls the triad of Jackson Hole couloirs he’s about to run “three ways to die.” And after watching the footage, I will not argue with the man.
Leeper spends a few seconds describing the runs, then drops into the first one, where two tight turns and lighting-fast reflexes manage to keep his body from smearing against the stony sides of the couloir.
Blink, and you’ll miss it.
