Night skiing is something that should be left for fictional spies and people who have somehow developed superhuman abilities.

Unless of course you're these two, who have custom-built LED suits and a government's worth of logistics and civil engineering behind them.

This incredible video was taken in Alaska and features Pep Fujas, Eric Hjorleifson, Daron Rahlves, and Chris Benchetler all of whom are absolutely fearless.

There is the tiniest hint of a PR angle as Philips actually commissioned the video in as part of a campaign to promote their Ambilight TVs. Honestly though, when a video looks this good you may not even mind.

The video was shot in stunning HD and shows the skiers as they descend with their light suits, casting coloured shadows over each of the trees as they fly past.

It's truly something else so rather than rabbit on any more we'll just let you enjoy it:
