Here’s a ski trick you probably won’t see at X Games

Tobi Heinle, a German ski instructor and freerider, might be at home on steep terrain but has also proven himself adept on flatter slopes when it comes to a particular ski trick, as evidenced by a video shared by his sponsor Mammut Deutschland on Facebook this week.

Along with identifying him as a Mammut freeride athlete, the winter sports products manufacturer also called Heinle a part-time acrobat, and here’s why:

Heinle, 28, calls Lech am Arlberg home. It’s a mountain village and exclusive ski resort in the Bludenz district of Austria, and where we assume he pulled off this ski trick.

He is said to spend 200 days on skis, so he’s had plenty of time to master it.

With his right ski pole, he unlocked his right ski from the binding, flipped it into the air and caught it with his right hand. As he continued skiing along on his left ski with both ski poles in his left hand, he balanced the right ski on the tip of his right ski boot before letting it fall to the snow, after which he stepped back into the binding.

Voila, ski trick completed, 11 seconds of awesome.
