Two Downhill Skiers Impatient For Snow Ski Through A Fallen Leaf Covered Forest

October 9, 2018

Too impatient to wait for some actual snowfall in a few months, this is a video of two skiers (absolutely destroying their skis) skiing on the autumn leaves (and rocks) of the Cantal Forest in Southern France. Admittedly, it looks like a lot of fun. Can I borrow your skis? "But don't you have your own?" Yes. "So then why--" Listen, it really isn't that hard to figure out. I can't tell if you're acting dumb or just want me to admit it, but yes, I'm going to be in the Olympics and you have nicer equipment than I do.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Christian, who's more of a grass skier.

    When they really get going, the leaves thrown up by their skis look like pixelated snow. Pixelated orange snow.

  • GeneralDisorder

    Leaves are slippery as fuck. I'm not surprised this worked so well.

    They must have rentals! then you can aim for the rocks and trees.

    Needs to be set to that little big song.

    How they don't hit more trees is beyond me. I can just walk around and slam into crap much less careening down a hill going super fast on two sticks.

  • TheQiwiMan

    Huh. Well I guess there are many other, less fun, ways to die.

    Indeed..... I concur

    Seems much more terrifying without the snow for some reason....

    You'd be able to see branches coming in the snow. But not through a leaf pile.
