The X Games gold medalist can now scratch off ‘Jump Ski Jump’ from his To Do List after nailing a huge 70m jump in Örnsköldsvik, Sweden, and soaring over 15m (50ft) into the air.

“What a feeling! I spent such a long time dreaming about this moment and waiting for it to finally happen,” said Daniel afterwards. “Flying is a unique sensation that is hard to describe. It was quite intimidating at the top, but straight after take-off I felt I had everything under control.”

Daniel isn’t new to breaking barriers: in 2008, he set a new world record for the longest backflip on a snowmobile, but his most recent feat is something else altogether.

“For years I have passed ski-jumping hills in my car, and every time I’ve thought that it should be possible to jump one of those with a snowmobile. Half a year ago I felt it was time to go from thought to action and just do it.”

And so he did. Who knows what he’ll do next with his trusty snowmobile.
