Friday Video Fun: Escalator Skiing in London

Posted By: The Ski Channel on July 22, 2011 9:51 am

Friday is here again which means yet another Friday Video Fun! 

This week, we are looking at Escalator Skiing in London. Have you heard of it before? It’s all the craze. Many people have been photographed (like Hungarian stuntman “Szenty” skiing down one of the railway station escalators in Budapest, Hungary) and others have shot numerous videos.

A few years ago, some guys in London skied down one of the London Undergrounds escalators at Angel Station, and here is the video. I love the Brits.

Soon to be more of a off-season craze? I know I told the people of Los Angeles to break out their old equipment to ski in the streets during Carmageddon. Shall we all start riding the escalators? Just make sure and wear your helmet, okay? And please don’t tell them I sent you.
