Tired of all those generic GoPro POV’s? Check this out. Candide Thovex has always done things a little differently. His imagination and creativity both on skis and off is clear to see.¬†Make sure you watch this one all the way to end!

Candide Thovex grew up in the French ski village of La Clusaz. He spent most of his early career winning freestyle competitions and became the first person to successfully land Chad’s Gap in Utah. Perhaps his biggest and most telling achievement came in 2010 when he won the Freeride World Tour – a so called ‘freestyler’ beating some the best big mountain skiers in the world at their own game. An enigmatic and somewhat elusive character, Candide remains one of the most influential skiers if his generation.
