Video: Lalo Rambaud Goes Freeriding on Slalom Skis

We're used to seeing Lalo Rambaud throwing down on the Freeride Junior Tour, but this is a welcome departure from the norm. Rambaud ditches his long, fat freeride skis for a pair of short and thin slalom sticks, and proceeds to hit many of La Clusaz's classic features. He might not overshadow the Candide edits that made the features famous, but he's 17 and using skis intended to never leave an icy racecourse.

A few creative Youtube commentators have speculated that a race with integrated freestyle features could be entertaining. In this hypothetical race discipline, trick scores would be deducted from racers' times, similar to Speed and Style in biking. On one hand, this could introduce a new element of strategy; allowing competitors to choose between focusing on raw speed or more/bigger tricks. On the other hand, it sounds super dangerous, and there's no way FIS would go for it. Who knows, though... Maybe in 20 years freeride racing will be in the Olympics.

At this point, it seems like Candide has skied on every conceivable surface: Snow, sand, water, air (debatably), and now super old Chinese bricks. It's kind of like urban skiing, except there's no snow. Talk about high-consequence... RELATED: Answered - How Did Candide Ski on that Wave? From a scientific perspective, it's hard to say if one can ski on plasma (the only state of matter we haven't seen Candide rip), but if anyone could do it, it would have to be the Flying Frenchman.

Chris Whatford might be best known for his snowblading antics, but he's also pretty solid on a pair of normal-length skis. A longtime South Lake Tahoe local, Whatford takes full advantage of the region's chutes, spines, and fingers in this season edit.
