GoPro: Alaskan Airdrop

With Xavier De Le Rue and friends

Exploring the untouched terrain of Alaska from the air is one thing, but Xavier De Le Rue and friends have taken it to the next level. Through use of a modified paramotor, Xavier and the crew were able to scout previously untouched terrain and drop straight onto the mountain when they saw something that caught their eye. While the first few attempts didn't go exactly as planned, once they'd sorted out the kinks things began to kick off. Watch as Xavier, Ralph Backstrom, and skiier Sam Anthamatten tackle what must have been the experience of a lifetime. Is this the future of big mountain riding?
