X-Project Athletes Paraglide Over Cliffs in Swiss Alps for New Extreme Sport
In a new extreme winter sports event known as X-Project, participants are taken by helicopter to remote locations in the Swiss Alps. No chair lift, or road, can get where they need to go. From there, they hike to the top of the peak, and then, down they go, using skis, snowboarders and windsurfing rigs. "I am always chasing this rush of adrenaline, the speed, the fear of trying something new,” said one athlete.
