Jill Kuzman - My New Swiss Obsession - Via Ferrata

Jill Kuzman - My New Swiss Obsession - Via Ferrata
November 07, 2014 - 

Via Ferrata is an exit point in the Swiss Valley. Its mostly a wingsuit jump because of the quick start time of the terrain. You have 7 seconds to impact. So you must be moving pretty quickly if you're going to make it past the tree covered ledge below. A slightly intimidating thought while standing at an exit point. But, I'm set. My starts are fast, my exits are solid, my flights are stable. Only thing standing in my way is the most rainy season that Europe has seen since 1965.

Heading back to the Swiss Valley was incredibly exciting for me. I was here last year with a slightly smaller wingsuit and less time for my trip. This year, I'm ready to rage. New suit in hand, one more year of experience under my belt, and 2 more weeks than I had last year. With a valley full of my friends ready to jump and party. Its like Disney World for BASE jumpers.

Breaking my femur in 2012 was not my finest moment in life. I took a lot of good lessons from that experience though. #1 Doing a TARD over off a cliff is a stupid thing to do. #2 If you break it, you better fix it. There was a lot I was limited from doing during my recovery. Mostly impact activities. I needed something to get back in shape and I didn't want to wait until I was cleared for running. This is when I found yoga. Yoga not only became a challenging and strength building activity in my...

Part 3 of My Summer Vacation - Jill Kuzman
September 10, 2013 - 

The morning after we get back to Switzerland we head out to High Nose so I can make my first wingsuit jump in the valley. Back to the fear icing on the fear cake! It wasn't quite that bad this time around. On my favorite exit, feeling good on my suit. I push off and the anxiety immediately disappears. I fall for a few seconds and then began soaring out over the ledge and then the trees. I pass the trees, pass the road, then pull high. What?! I was scared! I was safe!Later that day, I head back...
