Candide Thovex sending it over Chad's Gap in 1999.

Chad's Gap is a 120 foot (around 36 meters) backcountry gap located in the Wasatch Mountains, near Alta Ski Area, in Utah, United States. Chad's Gap is a part of extreme skiing lore and facts about its exact location and the circumstances of its discovery have been reported but have not been fully substantiated. One version of the structure's discovery has it that Chad Zurinskas, a local Utah resident after whom the gap was purportedly named, discovered it as a gap between two piles of mine tailings in 1999 and arranged with filmmaker Kris Ostness to make the first successful jump. The first successful jump was done by Candide Thovex.
