Travelling at speeds that wouldn’t look unusual on an Olympic-standard ski slope, stunt skier Vitaly Slobodenyuk was able to achieve the phenomenal speeds because he was being pulled along on by a car.

The video was filmed on the snowy roads between Russian ski complexes Yurmanka and Novososedovo in the Novosibirsk region, where temperatures can reach -30 degrees.

Holding onto a cable that was tied to a Subaru car, Slobodenyuk admits that the stunt was dangerous but as a seasoned stunt skier he was well prepared for the risks and wore protective equipment.
