In case you haven’t heard, BASE jumping is a sport that involves launching oneself off of buildings, antennas, spans, or earth (cliffs), opposed to typical skydiving where an athlete jumps from a plane. Because the distance between the jumper and the ground tends to be much smaller than a jump from a plane, BASE jumping is quite dangerous. Check out this video of a few jumps in one of Colorado’s most beautiful mountain towns, Ouray, for a better look at how cool, but risky, this sport is.
