How Ted Hesser Captured a Viral Picture of the Eclipse

Columbia, in partnership with Goal Zero, is proud to share “Totality,” a behind-the-scenes film that illustrates the vision and dedication of this talented team.

The expressions on their faces as they clicked the shutter to capture the image are almost as epic as the photo itself.

Special thanks to Martina Tibell, Tommy Smith, and Michael Shainblum.

First, you need to watch this video all the way through to truly appreciate what a spectacular whipper this is. We’re not sure what’s more impressive– the solitary foot that desperately clings to the rock as this climber loses his battle against the force of gravity, or the fact that this guy survived unscathed. A healthy reminder to wear your helmet, for the most unexpected of whippers.

Valentin Delluc Only Needs Four Turns For Mont-Blanc

Valentin Delluc Only Needs Four Turns For Mont-Blanc

For those who are always getting heckled by the speed wranglers, maybe it’s a sign that inbounds skiing is no longer your thing? Perhaps it’s time for bigger and better pastures. And to that end, may we present Valentin Delluc. Delluc is avid Speedrider—the French Champion in fact—and now cruises over the slopes of Mont-Blanc like nobody’s business. In his latest clip with Red Bull, he might have only made four turns to cover the more than 7,000 feet of vertical, but hey, he’s going as fast
