A group of explorers took their trampolining to new heights by bouncing on a mountain summit.

Ian J Borowski, 21,  said that one of his friends suggested the idea in high school – the whole group eventually made it to the Flattop Mountain in Anchorage, Alaska.

The group set their trampoline at the top of the mountain, about 3500 feet high above Anchorage.

Ian said: “It is definitely not easy taking a trampoline up a mountain let alone in the winter.

“It starts with dissembling the trampoline, we break down the trampoline into about ten parts and one person carries one part, such as a couple legs, a couple of the ring beams, some springs or the mesh.

“Taking it down this year we tried a different tactic, we brought up a big sled and packed it down- it was a lot easier than carrying it in separate parts.

“It’s awesome jumping on a trampoline so high up- you feel totally free, but you also need to extra careful to not fall off the mountain.

“I’ve thought about the idea of taking a trampoline up an even bigger mountains or to other remote locations such as the mudflats or somewhere out in the middle of the ocean.”
