The "base jumpers"

One last look from the top before we take the helicopter down.

( No we did not jump!!!)

Lots of snow on top of the mountain.

At the base all the jumpers prepare to go back up and do it all over again.

Fly like an eagle!!!!

Some have a "bird man suite". With a suite like this you stay in the air 2 1/2 times longer. Not every one wears a suite like this.

The cliffs are over 3000 ft high and some of the best for this sport so they tell us.
