An epic (and illegal) stunt is caught on video as a BASE jumper drops from the Peak2Peak gondola at Whistler Blackcomb. Do not try this at home.

"McConkey Reborn" Illegal BASE jump from Peak2Peak gondola at Whistler.

Epic (and ill-advised)

The video above, titled ""McConkey Reborn", shows a guy performing a BASE jump out of the Whistler Peak2Peak gondola over Fitzsimmons Creek. It's a 1,500-foot drop. A female companion helps him pry the doors of the gondola ajar before he makes the jump.
