It's the stuff James Bond films are made of. A lone skier perched atop a mountain begins his daring descent. White powder puffs up around his skis as he makes his way down the mountain. He picks up speed; good nobody is behind him. But, wait, he's reached the edge of a cliff!

Well, that wouldn't stop a British superspy, nor does it stop Matthias Giraud, who flies off the edge, filming the rocky, snow covered peaks below.

In his wake, an avalanche pours over the side of a cliff -- an amazing spectacle he captures on film with a GoPro HD Hero camera.

At the end of the ride, he catches up with his friend as they survey their miraculous journey.

Check out the awesome video.
