People Are Skiing in Detroit's Abandoned Buildings

People are skiing in Detroit's abandoned buildings. At least some people are.

"Tracing Skylines," a film co-created by the gents at Poor Boys Productions and Red Bull Media House, showcases talented skiers taking on a variety of challenging terrains in places like Switzerland, France, Alaska, and, apparently, Detroit.

During the Motor City segment, skier Karl Fostvedt pulls off stunt after ridiculous stunt, with Detroit's abandoned schools, factories, and churches as his backdrop.

While it's clear the crews are *less than knowledgeable* about the city and are keen on producing a particularly slanted narrative, there's one thing for certain: the skiing is unlike anything you've seen before.

Watch the film here:
