Only a decade old, speedriding is a new, high-speed sport that mixes elements of skiing and flight.

Watch the video above to see speedriders – John DeVore, Filippo “Ippo” Fabbi, and Andy Farrington – make turns on a massive ski line, while taking to the air to navigate features such as massive cliffs, icefalls, major crevasses and other glacial features before returning to the snow to complete a previously unrideable mountain range.

"In The Unrideables: Alaska Range, we hope to introduce speedriding to people who love pushing what’s possible in the mountains as much as we do," said John DeVore, Red Bull Air Force captain and expert on human flight.

Catch the world premiere of the documentary film The Unrideables: Alaska Range on Wednesday, January 21, at The Depot in Salt Lake City, and on the big screen in Denver the following week.

For your chance to view a prescreening of the full feature before it is available for sale in February 2015, check out the official film page of The Unrideables: Alaska Range for more videos and info.
