    That is impressive and looks like fun. I think snowmobiling feels more safe than riding an atv. I feel like when you fall, especially when doing big jumps like that the snow will somewhat cushion your fall, but I could be wrong, I'm not really an expert in snowmobiling, or snow lol.

    Oh my... the adrenaline run one would receive after completing the jump would be huge! I'd personally never attempt such a feat, but it's great to see him succeed. I would have liked it more if they had attached a camera to his helmet and shown the world from his perspective.

    He has one big , round, hair pair if you ask me. So many things could have gone wrong. Wind, rotation, vertical axis, passing gas... :)
    What did he win for setting the record, anything at all?

    Even if he didn't win anything, he won the respect from myself and everyone from around the world.

    Probably would not have been able to see anything except sky and snow. Think these guys do it all instinctively!

    If I made a jump like that, there'd be a trail of yellow snow under me.
