as soon as we made the decision we were going I just instantly my hands started sweating the whole idea behind the ski-flying hill was just to try and go as big as I possibly could that be a place where I could really send it to the moon that structure up on top of the hill it's the biggest one in the world at 26 stories it's an icon in its own right it's our version of the Eiffel Tower from the time the dream originated back in 1935 till those built was a span of 35 years now that's called commitment and dedication to soar through the air like an eagle I guess is it is a thrill that only those brave souls that experience it can fully enjoy it and it is a tremendous feeling that's how we got our highs we didn't rely on some of the other stuff that goes on today spaceship my first thoughts were holy you know what I get myself into is a full ghost ramp when we showed up the ramp hadn't been hit in 20 years okay the people helping would determine they were just as much a part of it as I was they were committed it's definitely the spirit of the Midwest six people are awesome you know if this US Steel make your jockey shorts do because you got some frickin steel can yoli's if you're going off of this thing fricking switch speaking cuz I mean they say that we're crazy but you come off of this thing frickin switch man you got a lot bigger staff and I got you lying if I didn't say I was a little nervous it wasn't like any other session the thought of if I fall it's gonna be bad never escaped my mind the speed for me is what made this thing so gnarly I was taking off near 60 miles per hour felt like I was getting launched out of the plane man that one felt so crazy go for one more spiel it's right here well I'm hot I think it's all as soon as I hit into my mind pop the metal steaks that were lined on the side of the landing and I just started fighting like grabbing the snow trying to pull myself back towards the middle of the ramp that's so lucky my skis pop to samia's he's got a he's got a lot of Cecil you know that's a Finnish word for determination and enthusiasm and he's got a lot of that he's quite a young man I did admire his courage you

    For some reason the jump itself didn’t seem that impressive. I expected way more hangtime. Dudes in free ride comps are hitting cliffs with more hangtime and Vertical drop.

    @ 1:22 I know the jumper did not carry a single 80 gallon trash barrel of snow up that ramp. His legs would be dead.
