A group of skiers got together on April 14, 2013, at Mont-Saint-Sauveur in Quebec to attempt to break the world record for most people holding hands while doing a backflip on skis.
According to reddit poster howImetyourdaughter, the second person from the right in the video, they plan on getting Guinness to verify their world record jump.
“I wasn’t in charge of the whole thing, but I know that they want to try it again more officially next year. We were a bit last minute this year. But Guinness or not, I’m still pretty stoked about how well it worked!” they wrote.

“The idea was thrown about a month beforehand by Mik on Facebook but it was really in the last week that everything fell together,” says the reddit poster.
