SALT LAKE CITY -- Skiing already offers extreme sports enthusiasts plenty of opportunities, but another take on the sport involves adding a parachute in order to elevate the excitement to entirely new levels.

A movie about speedriding, "The Unrideables: Alaskan Range" premiered locally Wednesday, and one of the stars spoke with FOX 13 about the high-flying activity. John Devore is a pioneer in the sport, which he said is a combination of big mountain skiing and canopy piloting. He said the fusion is "dangerously addictive."
