The superlative "extreme" has lost its definition lately. We've got extreme shopping, extreme fast food meals... there's probably an extreme zoo out there somewhere as well. So we were a little wary when we came across this trailer for Skiing Everest: The word "extreme" gets tossed out about six times in the first 30 seconds. But this is one case where the word fits the situation.
When you're racing down the hill or pumping through the powder on skis, do you ever wish you also had a parachute strapped to your back? Us neither. But apparently these guys did -- and in doing so invented the new sport of speed flying.
