I was just doing some reading (http://demandware.edgesuite.net/aadf_prd/on/demandware.static/Sites-Burton_US-Site/Sites-Burton_US-Library/default/v1250595918760/pdfs/BackintheDay.pdf) on Jake Burton Carpenter. He is the entrepreneur who created the Burton snow board.

In the pdf file listed above, they refer to a ski movie called Apocalypse Snow. I did a look up for it on youtube and found this video.

There are some pretty sick stunts in it. Near the end, a guy on skies, tries to jump over a train and do a back flip at the same time. Well he doesn't quite make it and his skis hit the top of the train. He doesn't look like he was injured but that was pretty insane.

Apocalypse Snow 1983
