Skiing in the London Underground

The man in the video above found the perfect spot for downhill skiing. The location is clear of skiers and snowboarders, requires no lift ticket, and… lies beneath London? Yes, you read that right. Though, it’s not so much a back-country trail as it’s the longest escalator in Europe.

The footage shows the anonymous skier hurtling down an Up escalator in London’s Angel Tube Station. He could have endangered the lives of anyone going up the moving walkway, but luckily it was clear. Officials from the London Underground subway system have seen the YouTube entry and derided the stunt as “dangerous, stupid, and irresponsible.” I agree with the tube authorities, but — you have to admit — it was probably a really, really fun ride.
