Matthias remember his first ski BASE jump, which was also the first ski BASE jump off Mt Hood. He was standing on top of the line he was going to ski, the snow was firm, the wind was calm and his heart was pounding in his chest. He suddenly heard the cameraman on the radio saying “ready whenever you are”. At that moment, he took the biggest breath of his life. As he counted down, his heart rate slowed down and he dropped in. He did it.
