Inflatable kayak makes for a solid sled

BOISE, ID (WCJB) -- Skis aren’t the only way down a snow-covered mountain, especially for this group of friends who decided to get creative.

Mason Noyes was in the back seat of a friend's new inflatable kayak that launched off a jump on Sun Valley’s Proctor Mountain last February.

How many times have you seen a boat fly? There's no official distance but estimates are close to 100 feet.

Noyes said he considered the risk when he thought this idea through, but what made him follow through with it?
As it turns out, he’s been doing this for years with his own kayak, but never this big.

“I was just happy that we made it,” Noyes said, “and we had a whole bunch of people there that were stoked."
