Video: Introducing Mountain Skiing in the French Alps

Skiing and mountaineering have always been activities that have naturally gone together, but in this video you’ll see something a little different. It features French Alpine Ski Team member Alex Pitting and Tony Lamiche, former French rock climbing and ice climbing champion, as they head up into the mountains looking for steep slopes to climb and descend. And when I mean steep, I mean very steep. The duo call this “mountain skiing” as it requires dropping down slopes that are meant more for climbing than shredding. It is quite a trip, so buckle in and enjoy the ride.
