An Ontario man celebrated his 95th birthday early by setting a Guinness World Record.

Gordon Precious was 94 years and 306 days old when he took a CMH Heli-Skiing & Summer Adventures trip to the Cariboo Mountains.

He and his guide were lifted up the mountain by helicopter, to the top of the "Nectar" ski run and made his way down the mountain.

"It was my first run by helicopter in five years. When the helicopter takes off, you think oh my goodness how am I going to get down from way up here. Then you recall that you have a very experienced guide with you, and you know that its within your scope," Precious said in his video.

He took the record from a 91 year old adventurer.
