Video: Skier Jumps From Helicopter Into Volcano

Russia claims another first with volcano vent shred in Kamchatka

The latest in ski progression, watch Ivan Malakhov jump 40 feet from a helicopter into a volcano vent on Kamchatka. Apparently he’s the first man to ever perform such a stunt, which should come as no surprise to anyone, because of course it is. And of course it happened in Russia.

The Eastern Bloc is crushing it right now. Uzbekistan, anyone? Bikini ski world records? This cold war is alive and well and the USA seems to be losing. —John Clary Davies
