Nordic Extreme

Even Nordic skiers recognize a need to make their sport more exciting.

So I was wasting precious moments of my ever-waning life on Facebook the other day, as I often do, when I came across this video of Nordic skiers getting sick in Quebec. Make fun of these Spandex-clad goobs all you want, but remember that they're doing tricks that most alpine skiers would find difficult—with footwear as supportive as tennis shoes and skis as wide as kindling shards. Enjoy.
