If there’s one thing Owen Leeper is known for, it’s his knack for hitting absolutely GIGANTIC cliffs on his skis.

Even more mind-blowing is the fact that Leeper sent a massive frontflip off the lip, something he claims actually makes it easier. With airs this size, Leeper says he has to commit to landing on his
