Take a ride down the Olympic snowboarding course that scared away top American snowboarder Shaun White, thanks to video taken by Russian Olympian Alexey Sobolev.

White, also known as the Flying Tomato, announced Wednesday that “the potential risk of injury is a bit too much for me to gamble my other Olympic goals on.”

He also called the course “intimidating” with three vertical drops of 101 feet, 92 feet and 85 feet, respectively.
