    Thanks you for the bump. I totally agree with what has been said about Sam Anthamatten and wanted to reference his skiing in "This is home" here.
    It is amazing how in these film they skied some gnarly stuff in the sort time they had. These guys can pull something off in almost all conditions -> further proof for how advanced the lines in la List are as they needed near perfect conditions.

    btw: The first air in la liste is one of my favorite airs on film. It comes so fluid out of the line and the terrain.

    .
    Slightly lower consequences??? more than one slope they rode , had over 2k vertical of cliffs and rocks below them>certain death if an edge was caught or a binding failed

    A short one with Heitz, Victor de le Rue, and a couple of other demi-gods of snow sliding. Very much in line with La Liste. I was GRIPPED watching the Pain de Sucre portion.

    Man those guys are really pushing the progression of big mountain riding. Taking it places very few will ever go and setting the bar very high.

    It will suck when, not if, one of these guys kills themselves. I love watching the stuff, but that's the first and last thought that runs through my brain every time I see skiing on this level.
    Set my compass North, I got Winter in my blood.

    So beautiful. So scary.

    We're all going somehow, and one could argue that these guys have already lived more than most will.

    I get the same sweaty palms as when I've been around people free soloing.

    The treatment of this topic (how far do you take it) was delt with nicely in "TWENTY".
