Matthias Giraud, aka, “Super Frenchie” is an extreme athlete known for combining two of the most dangerous action sports in the world—big mountain skiing and BASE jumping. Ski-BASE jumping is not for the faint at heart, as athletes fly off massive cliffs while deploying their parachutes within mere seconds of landing. Matthias’s passion for the sport has taken him all over the world, from the Eiger and Matterhorn in Switzerland, to Telluride, Colorado.
