Shaun White makes barreling down a steep mountain face as fast as gravity allows look like a task as mundane as walking a neutered Pekinese. Things really start to get other-worldly when you watch the eleventy-billion-time X-Games medalist and Men's half-pipe Olympic champion take to the skies. It's ballet in the stratosphere; ballet that has some severe, life-or-death consequences if the landing is chunked. That's why pro-level snowboarding is best left to the pros or those with a Knievel-level death wish."
