No Snow? No Problem; Urban Skiing Hits the Streets

With below average snowfall across much of the U.S. this winter, it's tough to find good skiing conditions. But who says there has to be fresh powder in the mountains in order to ski? This video, shot last year in British Columbia, proves that it's possible to ski in an urban area — even on pavement (although that can't be good for your skis). The skier in this video risks life and limb as he heads down flights of stairs, up and over dirty snowbanks, and performs risky aerial maneuvers. Making the video especially awesome is the soundtrack, by the now defunct LCD Soundsystem.
