A lot of you know I am a big fan of Warren Miller and his ski movies.

I just saw a news report about an amazing skier named Billy Poole.

He died while filming a scene for an upcoming Warren movie.

I like watching the videos of these extreme skiers because I think they really push they edge and it always makes me wonder how I can push the edge in my own way.

Extreme skier dies during film jump (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2008/more/01/22/extreme.skier.dies.ap/index.html?cnn=yes) - An extreme skier died Tuesday from injuries he sustained after jumping off a cliff for a scene in a documentary film.

What about you? What inspires you to push things?

Here is a video of Billy skiing.
