Swatch Skiers Cup 2013 HighlightsBy Rocky Thompson on February 12th, 2013
What’s baffling to me is that a watch company like Swatch can afford to sponsor the Big Mountain skiing event. Now that everyone owns smart phones, who even buys watches anymore? And besides, I haven’t seen a Swatch since 8th grade (they came late to the Midwest). That said, at least, someone is putting up the cash for these absolutely insane skiers. The best part of this video comes at 3:00 when some maniac throws a backflip right in front of an avalanche—almost as if he’s just doing it to look back and see how close the damn thing is.
