Trampoline Off a Cliff?

This summer if you don’t have anything to do, isn’t it natural to put a trampoline on top of a cliff, then jump into a lake? Well only for those few with enough creativity, balls and a trampoline. This summer up at Whistler, some skiers had a bit of down time and came up with this ingenious idea. One of those such skiers is Full Tilt’s own Leigh Powis. Witness the awesome below:

Other than jumping off cliffs from trampolines, Leigh Powis is a pretty good skier. And by pretty good we mean REALLY good. See for yourself.

Jumps and Rails (features) these days are starting to grow to such large sizes and are becoming so much more immense they are starting to resemble features seen in video games. With this the number of injuries and the severity of those injuries getting more serious, how much farther do you see yourself pushing the limits? as far as im able to!! cant wait to see how far that will be!!!

Besides skiing, what would you say your creative outlet/form of self-expression is? well i like to draw alot and get crazy with trampolines but also i make a damn good huckdoll keep your eyes peeled for them! ha but really!!

What are your goals/dreams beyond skiing and in your future? really at the moment every bit of my energy and brain power (haha) is being put into skiing im very one pointed and thats what i want/
