Ski Bungee Ramp

(YouTube link)

How’s this for a thrill: combine skiing, zip lining, and bungee jumping! The Bun J Ride at Tignes Ski Resort in the French Alps does just that. You have a ski jump ramp with two zip lines on the sides, extending down the hill. A bungee cord is suspended between those two zip lines and attached to the skier or snowboarder. Once you launch off the ramp, you bounce up and down two or three (or more) times to the bottom of the hill. Get a good view of the bounce in this video, although the guy’s form was an embarrassment. People also do this with bicycles. -via Geekologie, where you can see yet another video.
