Parasledding

It takes a wonderfully twisted mind to combine snowmobiling and parachutes.

Anybody’s who’s been snowmobiling long enough has thought of ways to make things a little more exciting once in a while. One thing we never considered was attaching a parachute to your sled and seeing what happens. British Columbia’s Eric Oddy did just that and managed to create a new sport – parasledding.

If not for the attached video, we would have questioned whether this was even possible. Alas, the camera doesn’t lie. We’re not sure we’d have the stones to try and pull something like this off, but we’re sure glad somebody did. So who’s next?

We found a video recently of snowmobilers scaling a steep reservoir wall and it left the lot of us absolutely stunned.

The video features two snowmobilers in Iceland playing around in a reservoir. The first thing we wondered was how they were going to get out. The walls are high and steep and there doesn’t appear to be a logical exit.

The first shows us the easy way out. The second took a much more difficult approach. We can’t do it justice with mere words, so check out the video below the jump to see for yourselves.
