Sebastien Toutant took advantage of Montreal's record snow, performing some impressive stunts in a downtown park.

On Thursday December 27, a storm dropped 18 inches of snow on Montreal, setting a record highest snowfall in a 24-hour period. Seb Toots, aka Sebastien Toutant, a competitive snowboarder, decided to take advantage of the fresh powder on the slope of Mt. Royal, in a park just next to the city's downtown.

Sunset Films captured the two-day adventure in the video below, complete with obligatory soundtrack from The xx. Thanks to railings and stairs, Toots completes some truly impressive stunts.
