Neil Munroe of Vernon likes a little speed now and again; that is why he flies Jumbo jets for a living and is a competitive speed skier in his spare time.

He is one of the few competitive speed skiers in Canada with a top speed of 212 kilometers per hour. The world record is a little faster at 251 kilometers per hour.

Neil blew into our studios for a quick interview about the life of a speed demon.
