I like this shotImage

But it doesn't look like 60 degrees to me. Of course it could just be the angle of the camera. Either way it's pretty impressive. I wonder how his legs felt on that at 27,000 feet... talk about thin air. Skiing magazine should buy him a set of new skis.

It's a heck of a lot cooler than that lame ski descent of Everest, where the guy didn't turn and basically fell the 2,000 feet.
