I don't think of myself as someone who is scared of heights, but these pictures definitely make my feet tingle with the thought of skiing down a steep slope full of rocks! It is quite impressive how this photographer managed to balance his camera(s?) and ski poles, and still made it to the bottom to transmit his pictures.
