Video: Jetpack skiing at 75 mph

Jet pack skiing should be in the next James Bond movie, but with smaller jet packs. The real one is a bit bulky.

If you’re one of those few people that think downhill skiing is a little too easy or a little too mainstream, Ski Cross world champion Filip Flisar has the answer, jetpack skiing!

Flisar recently teamed up with Red Bull to show off his unique way of skiing and the results are even more wondrous than you’d imagine.
The jetpack strapped to the back of Flisar delivers 88 lbs of thrust and runs at 96,000 rpm. Even though the jet engine can reach temperatures of 1,562° F, the skier somehow manages to keep his cool while travelling at up to 75 mph (120 km/h) with the custom contraption on his back.

It’s cool, but I’m not sure why you need the skis at all with the right jet pack.

This jetpack that can climb to 5,000 ft could explain a few UFO sightings.
