Have You Seen This? Jetpack skiing
Ever wake up in the morning and think to yourself, I should build a jetpack for skiing today? No? Well, these people over at Red Bull did, and they made a video. - photo by John Clyde

THE MOUNTAIN The snow is finally starting to melt here in the valleys, but for awhile I figured snowshoes would be a better alternative to shoes or boots to get around my neighborhood. After seeing this video, I realize skis and a jetpack would have been the ideal solution.

Red Bull got its hands on a jetpack, strapped it onto skier Flip Flisar's back and told him to fly around town, so he could get to mama's house for lunch.

The video is a bit cheesy, but overall it's pretty cool to see Flisar jetting across bridges and frozen ponds in his neon snowsuit. I think I got speed wobbles watching this, and I was just sitting in bed. And yes, I tipped over from the speed wobbles. I'm not proud of it. What I am proud of, however, is the fact that this isn't quite as simple as it looks, and navigating that kind of speed on city streets and soccer pitches takes a fair amount of skill.

Take a look at the video, and I'll try to get out of bed. No promises.
