How Did FWT’s Mickael Bimboes Clear That Canyon Gap in Fieberbrunn?

Two weeks ago, at the Freeride World Tour in Fieberbrunn, Austria, we witnessed one of the more impressive maneuvers ever seen on skis: Mickael Bimboes clearing a 30-foot canyon gap mid comp run to take the win. After already setting up a heater of a run with several massive airs up top, he pinned it directly toward judges and fellow competitors called the “impossible gap.”

In case you missed it, and we’ll admit it’s hard to see because he made it look so casual, here it is again.

Afterwards, Bimboes sat down with head judge Cyril Neri to walk us through his thought process. The landing was actually slightly higher than the takeoff, so Bimboes had to make sure to pop as hard as he could. Beyond that? GO FAST!

Podcast: Recounting Sam Smoothy’s Near-Death Crash in Winterland

Accidents in the mountains don’t just take a toll on the athletes involved, they weigh especially heavy on the friends and bystanders who witness and respond to them. When Sam Smoothy took a particularly heavy tumble while filming in Austria for TGR’s Winterland last year, the experience shook his film crew (who were the first responders and saved Sam's life) to the core. Learning from events like these is unfortunately part of the game we play, but provide valuable moments to look back on
