Yes, this dude is skiing down the chairlift cable

Because skiing down the mountain apparently doesn't give you, like, enough of a rush, man, French professional skier/speed-rider Valentin Delluc has figured out a way to make it even more extreme/ dangerous/ ridiculous -- by grinding down the chairlift cables! Yes, on skis. And with a parachute. [Insert eye roll here].

One wobble away from being this dude, here's Delluc pioneering what's certain to be an X-Games event in the next five years.

NOTE: Don't try this stunt on your backyard chairlift cable.
