If for the sherbert bases, leaving disappointed. Seriously, that is some incredible skiing there, if anyone has taken out any mid 80's 200mm skis recently, you know how hard it is to ski them...let alone like the way Marcus is that video, he is one helluva skier.
I'm picturing Charlie's Pontiac Firebird with those skis on a ski rack or just sticking out the window.

That little straitline in the middle looked like nothing from the camera angle but you could tell by his hesitation then immediate speed check how tight and gnarly it was. Definite no fall zone! Badass!!

He waited three days to attempt it, I hear. I'll try to find the pic that was sent to me by a close friend of his. That was a VERY narrow, VERY steep chute, with a couple of spots where it "flattened out" a bit.
That's not the type of terrain that he's typically skiing or filming in. Interesting. Can't recall if that's Iceland, or Norway. Assume it was a "smart business decision", and that we'll see more of it in a film this fall. My hunch.
