If you have not had the pleasure of watching “It’s Fantastic” the speed flying movie on The Ski Channel…You need to make a date for yourself.  It is visual paradise.  This writer has now watched the thing about 20 times and I like it better with each viewing.

It is shot mostly in Chamonix, France and highlights the exploits some US speed fliers heading over to catch up with the uber pro’s in Europe.  It is freakin awesome and awe inspiring!  The film finishes with a trip to Africa that is beyond belief.

We get to see a lot of cool things at The Ski Channel.  But speedflying is something that as dangerous as it is, there is not the big 2000 foot drop at the beginning of the ride like there is with so much of this extreme stuff.  That phenomenom really adds to the appeal of the sport and to the appeal of the film.

Watch this show.  It is amazing, I mean fantastic!
