Skier vs Big Cliff Video

At Mt Baker, WA on a nice sunny day watch as Pete Durr drops the Beast on his skis. The Beast is one of the most well-known features at Baker. The Beast is a huge cliff on "The Arm" which is located looker's left from chair 8 at Mt Baker's ski area. Everyone sees it, and barely anyone thinks about jumping over it. Pete tries it 2 different times. Let me tell you, I wouldn't even think about jumping this thing. It must be scary to drop something of this size. Pete says "I probably won't be attempting this again any time soon after ejecting one of my skis on the landing and giving myself some leg pain for the next year."
