We Found the POV Video of the Viral Backflip at Palisades Tahoe and It’s Absolutely Incredible

It’s probably not a secret that the best skiers in Tahoe ride at Palisades Tahoe. The advanced terrain of chairlifts like KT-22 attract some of the best skiers in the world, and the locals know every little bit of the mountain to perfection.

That’s why these videos of a massive backflip next to the chairlift show just how awesome the local skiers at Palisades Tahoe are.

We shared a social media post of Noah Gaffney sending a huge backflip right next to the lift, blowing away the people taking the video. The stoke in the video is palpable:

Now, thanks to the magic of the YouTube algorithm, we have also found Gaffney’s POV video of the backflip, and it shows him beelining it straight to the cliff and sending it. You can hear the stoke of the chairlift mid-air. Check it out:

What’s funny is that the stoked riders on the chairlift happens to include skiing phenom Kai Jones, who has already racked up three Skier of the Year nomination by the IF3 Awards Festival at the ripe age of 16.

Great work from Gaffney! Keep ripping it young man!

  1. Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is valuable and all. However think of
    if you added some great visuals or videos to give your
    posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this site could undeniably
    be one of the most beneficial in its field. Terrific blog!

  2. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting
    my own blog and was wondering what all is required to get set up?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?

    I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100%
    certain. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.


  3. Wow, awesome blog layout! How long have you
    been blogging for? you made blogging look easy. The overall look of your web site is great,
    as well as the content!
