Swiss freeskier reaches almost 56 mph for double front flip

The two-time world champion and Winter X Games gold medallist completed the jump down the steepest hill in the World Cup, a full 36-degree incline that usually brings ski jumpers up to speed.

Bosch skiied down the hill backwards in a switch then spun himself forward towards a kicker below to launch himself high into the air.

He generated enough speed in the air to pull off the first front flip with ease, then extended himself down the mountain to complete the second front flip and land safely forward 50m down the mountain.
