I just got back from Innsbruck Austria where my friend Flo Orley had a fun adventure planned for us.
We got to BASE jump out of a moving gondola in the middle of the day. I was so anxious before the jump, the landing area was tricky and the canyon was fairly narrow with a pretty thin snow coverage.
When it was time to get going, people were stoked in the gondola, the weather was perfect and we had some super soft landings!
Flo actually had a chat with the director of the ski resort Rosshütte afterwards and he was super cool about it. He just asked that we don’t do it again!
No property was damaged, no traces were left behind and nobody got hurt. It was some good clean fun unlike the idiot who jumped illegally in Whistler by vandalizing the Peak 2 Peak gondola.
It was all about having fun, not damaging anything and not hurting anyone. I love Austria!
Here is a New Year film by my friend Kyle Ohlson.

I just got back from the Google Zeitgeist 2013 event in Phoenix, Arizona and it was an absolutely amazing experience and met some incredible people!
I was truly honored to present GoPro there with CEO Nick Woodman to a very accomplished audience while being interviewed by Morgan Spurlock.
I never get phased by public speaking after many segments on TV but this one got my heart going even if it was only in front of 350 people!
One of the speakers there cured cancer and MC Hammer was in the audience! It was very humbling to be able to talk about my passion for skiing and BASE jumping to such accomplished individuals.
Channel 5 in the UK gave me a call a little while ago to be on a show called the World’s Greatest Daredevils. It is now playing on Discovery Europe.
I had the honor to be featured with some of the best extreme athletes in the world and the production crew was really fun and friendly.
If you were ever wondering what was the behind the scene of the GoPro Avalanche Cliff Jump or if you missed it on TV in Europe, enjoy the following piece. It’s about 45 minutes long and the avalanche ski BASE is around 11 minutes.
