Thermal hitchhikers

We all know about extreme skiers and snowboarders – well how about extreme animals. Check out the video.

Steve Leonard from the BBC is up in the air with the birds in his effort to find the planet’s most Extreme Animals.

Here he is paragliding to understand how a vulture hitchhikes on the back of hot air current bubbles to reach almost impossible heights.

Here are the wild birds of prey at their highest and finest! 

Most of the team at PlanetSKI has been paragliding high up in the mountains over the Swiss Alps where we live and many of us who are out in the mountains year round do it in both winter and summer.

The experience is competely exhilirating, though it is no match to this video – especially the descent.
