If your name is Sverre, then there’s the first clue that your ski tricks are going to be pretty radical. Here we see Sverre Liliequist competing in the Swatch Skiers Cup 2013 freestyle competition in Zermatt, Switzerland. During his second Big Mountain run he triggers an avalanche, and outraces it to the finish … but not before doing a backflip in the middle of the danger.

Crazy, or just slightly insane? You decide.
