After looking at the title of this video, I had to watch it. A cliff jump and an avalanche are possibly the best combination of things since Kelly Slater and waves. The jump is all filmed on a few GoPro cameras which give the footage a real sense of scale and intensity. The above video shows Matthias Giraud and his friend Stefan Laude escaping an avalanche off the Aiguille Croche in Megeve, France while performing a skiB.A.S.E jump.
Matthias Giraud is also known as "Super Frenchie" and is a professional skier and B.A.S.E. jumper. Along these lines he has a mission statement which summarises what he is about (if you ask me there are a lot worse aims in life):
"To promote the sports of skiing and B.A.S.E. jumping in a professional and humble manner to inspire human adventure."
Matthais was born in France and grew up skiing on the slopes of St Gervais-les-Bains. His first major accomplishment was the first ski B.A.S.E. jump off Mississippi Head on Mt Hood, Oregon. Since then he has achieved some equally incredible feats which you can read about here.
Giraud set out ski racing, but moved on to free skiing which was followed by big mountain skiing. He is well known for combining big mountain skiing with B.A.S.E jumping and has successfully combined the two at numerous locations across the globe, including a jump of the Matterhorn in Switzerland (see below).
