You have to give her a great deal of credit for trying something so dangerous, but you also have to question the need to take such a risk

I would assume that it was more about personal gratification. It couldn't be anything else.

It is amazing what drives certain people. I would love to see a documentary on the motivations behind certain people who ski

I applaud her for doing this. She clearly wants to do something different. Even if her motivations are personal gratification, it's her right.
