PORTLAND, Ore., Sept. 8 (UPI) -- A daredevil skier facing a lack of snow in Oregon strapped on his skis to tackle a different type of slope -- an outdoor staircase.

The video shows the skier taking on the three-flight outdoor staircase in downtown Portland, catching air on each landing.

The man's mostly successful run ends with a slip and fall at the bottom of the stairs.

"All the snow melted in the mountains so I decided to try and ski in downtown Portland. I was a little too ambitious and ended up sore and disappointed," the man wrote online.
