Two skiing videos

The top one features Candide Thovex.
Candide Thovex (born 22 May 1982) is a French professional skier, filmmaker and entrepreneur. He is notable for his creative movies to the sport of freestyle skiing, and professionally has won numerous contests and accolades... He is widely considered to be one of the best freeskiers in the history of the sport.
It's artificial in the sense that several downhill runs have been stitched into one sequence, but my  understanding is that all of the tricks are real, not CGI.

The second is more conventional and arguably more enticing.  Kudos re the choice of Claire de Lune for the musical background.

I recommend clicking the fullscreen icon to view both videos.


  1. In a somewhat similar vein, this one might interest you. Not skiing-related, just a peaceful, soothing bicycle trip through the British countryside.

  2. I came across him only yesterday morning - I'm pretty sure this will remain one of the best ads of 2018: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NHrwcQQ38bA

    1. Wow. Thanks, Ayoshe. That is totally blogworthy. It was fun to see how many of those locations I could recognize.
