Click above to watch the video after the jump

Thank God for crazy people. They're the ones who give us the best YouTube videos. To wit, after the jump, you'll see a couple of Icelandic snowmobilers with a lot of confidence and an unhealthy lack of fear showing off their winter-edition "Jackass" skills.

The pair ride their sleds into a local reservoir featuring some incredibly steep concrete walls for a bit of "fun." The video starts out slowly enough, until the first guy drives his snowmobile up the side of a 30-foot cliff. Impressive, if not foolhardy stuff. The next guy decides to top his pal with a move that would leave Einstein and Newton scratching their heads. We aren't sure if we want to send him to a psych ward or present him with a Liberty Bell-sized set of Truck Nutz. Hit the jump only if you're fully prepared to be stupefied.

      Fun to watch, scary as hell to attempt.

      You think he washed the crap out of his snow pants, or just threw them away?
      That was nuts. But then, I gotta say, I used to do that on dirt bikes on hills every bit as high. This just looked worse.

      I have come to the conclusion that people from Iceland are absolutely nuts.

        @ mtb124

        You see the article in Bike about riding in Iceland? Looked fun as hell.

        Course I haven't even hit Moab, Fruita, or most of the good places in the US, so I guess Iceland can wait.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Fruita is good too.

        Actually I'll be in Sun Valley all summer. Lotsa singletrack up there.
        • 5 Years Ago
        @ Kappy and MTB - skip Moab, go to Fruita. Course they're close enough to do both if you have a couple days to spare.

        I have the impression that you're a hybrid-driving pansy little b****

        Am I the only one?

        I can't stand people that insult others just becasue they have different interests or preferences. Get over yourself.

        I have the impression Icelanders are a bunch of monster truck driving rednecks. This is extremely dangerous, and not that fun really.

        Am I the only one?
        • 5 Years Ago
        for such an educated country you'd think they'd be less crazy!
        • 5 Years Ago
        Yeah, kinda.

        OTOH some of the stuff they do looks kinda fun. I mean those monster trucks of theirs ARE pretty sweet.

        (Totally wants to move to Iceland, just for the landscape)
        • 5 Years Ago
        my word, that was incredible or totally stupid or probably both.
        • 5 Years Ago
        I'm an XC guy, though I'm slowly garnering the nerve and skills to tackle some slightly bigger stuff.

      "Look at the penalty for failure dude."


      That's from a biking video, but also appropriate here.
      That quote helps me stay grounded to reality.

      Some of the turbo sleds also have a propane injection system. Brad Story's Nytro has 300+ hp.

      I ride a mountain sled myself but keep it relatively sane (only 140hp) with mods to the intake and exhaust.

      @TwinTurbo3000GT

      LoL! I was waiting for the first redneck to come out and call me a "hybrid-driving pantsy little sissie liberal", congratulations.

      Hows life in the trailer?

      I don't insult others because "they have different interests". I call it what it is, a dangerous activity with no purpose.

        The point is that its a good adrenaline rush dumbass. Thats like saying sky diving is pointless, or base jumping, or motorcycles, or.... wait why the hell are you even on this website nick? I think playing WOW is probably more your style... millions have proven it safe... and stay away from sex god knows how unsafe that is...

      I guess I'm Tony 2

      You got to admit the Icelandic people live in an extreme climate and have some of the most extreme sports to go with it. Watching them surmount seemingly impossible climbs like the 4wd buggies up mountain cliffs or traversing water ways, skipping across the surface like water-bugs makes any sane human being shake their heads in disbelief.

      Balls. Huge ones. The kinda that are big enough you could use em as a hippity hop if they weren't made of Titanium.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Liberty Bell sized indeed.
      • 5 Years Ago
      How in the hell is that even possible?
