Is this the scariest line ever skied?

We already know Cody Townsend can ski. Now he’s skied through a mountain’s crack in remote Alaska and lived to tell the tale.

This wicked line was awarded ‘line of the year’ at the Powder Video Awards and involved Mr Townsend, one narrow mountain crack, a pair of skis, a GoPro and a heli camera crew.

So tell me, would you, could you?

Hats off to you Cody.
