Man skis through abandoned tower block

A spectacular video of an Alaskan adventurer skiing through an abandoned five storey tower block is going viral online.

Logan Imlach is seen navigating stairways, jumping over puddles, bouncing off walls and ultimately even skiing straight through a window.

The two minute video was shot by Mr Imlach's friend Matt Wild and has notched up thousands of views on YouTube.

"We grew up together and have been doing things like this for a long time, not to get famous or sponsored or anything like that but just to have fun," said Mr Wild.

"For some reason we have a lot of passion about skiing and snowboarding. Being raised in Alaska it's kind of bred into you."

The pair decided on the project after Mr Wild badly injured his knee, prematurely ending his snowboarding season.

They used home made camera equipment, a Lego train track dolly and roped in friends to shovel snow into the building.
