Ski-chuting down Mt. Blanc

This is absolutely gorgeous!  Someone dreamed of this.  Someone put in some serious time and research.  Someone put in a lot of hours with parachutes, skis, and base jumps.  Someone spent a lot of time studying that mountain and the conditions around it.  Someone spent a lot of time checking the weather conditions and it’s effects on the mountain and the air.  For all that, someone got to have a once-in-a-lifetime experience and share it with others who would fly and others who would watch.  I thank that someone.

About carpebootium

I am a modern-day pirate. I travel the world and trade in today's currency, information. I sail through opportunity, comedy, history and strategy to turn turbulent into tournament, chaotic into cathartic, and embarrassing into emboldening. There are none who should fear me save two: Those who have what I want and those who get in my way. Are you done sailing your calm waters with strong undertow? Have you your fill of empty treasure and oasis destinations? Well good...come and join my crew! We're a lively lot from all over the world but be forewarned...anyone attempting to drop anchor will be thrown overboard, shot, harpooned and then marooned on an isle of cannibals. We move on! If you are ready...welcome aboard the Carpe Bootium!
