Cubed Pipe

WHO SAID A HALFPIPE HAD TO BE HALF A PIPE?

The usual skiing warnings apply, the above video features no snowboarding.

Now we have that settled we can start on what it does feature; one hell of a weird pipe. Freeskier Simon Dumont had the idea of getting a run down so precisely that the parts of the pipe he didn’t use could simply be cut away.

Sounds quite simple right? Except that meant when he was 20 feet above the pipe it actually became almost 50 feet above the icy flat. It also made things doubly tricky mid air, as not only was he a pant filling fall height above the ground but the walls of the pipe that he normally uses as a guide were gone. Amazingly, he’s still alive.
