Check Out Some Gnarly Late-Season Skiing From Chamonix

At this point, it’s a fair bet that we’ve all hung up our skis for the summer and have transitioned to more appropriate sports like climbing, mountain biking, or running rivers like there’s no tomorrow. Of course, in France, things always tend to be a little different – and the whole “hanging up your skis” thing is no exception. Leave it to FWT champion Leo Slemett to continue pushing the limits even in mid-summer. Although, let’s be real here – skiing pow on the infamous Mallory route on the Aiguille du Midi is probably pretty mellow for him.

This should be music to the ears of all the New Englanders out there. NFL superstar Rob Gronkowski is joining the Pit Viper Experts Only Pro Team.

Leave it to the French to be dramatic about this kind of stuff… No really, Hugo Manhes’s project “Un Skier en Feu” (A Skier on Fire) is a stark and important visualization of climate change and its impact on how we play in the mountains. Sure, statistics like the fact that the snowpack on France’s Porte Pass has decreased by 40 percent in three decades, the average winter temperature increasing by a full degree, and many more might get the attention of some, but at this point maybe we do need

Ouch. It’s one thing to be skiing and riding as aggressively as the athletes on the Freeride World Tour, and it’s an entirely different thing to be crashing as hard as they (sometimes) do. Competing at the highest level leaves very little margin for error, and that’s pretty clear if you watch some of the bails from the 2021 Tour. There’s everything from 60-0 in a matter of inches (shoutout Aymar Navarro and that snowbank) to folks going SPLAT off gigantic airs (shoutout everyone else). Hope
