VIDEO: The King of Freestyle Skiing

Candide Thovex is a 34 year old French professional freestyle skier.  He’s the only skier in history to bag X-Games Gold medals in all disciplines (Big Air, Slopestyle and Halfpipe) as well as a Freeride World Tour championship. That’s why Candide is considered to be the most iconic and versatile skier in the history of the sport by many specialists worldwide.

He’s since been putting his energy and talent into filming and is now the man behind the internet trilogy “One of Those Days”, three high-speed POV videos packed with big jumps, flips and spins, all filmed with a GoPro on his helmet, around his home resort of La Clusaz in France.

In the second episode, Candide invites us along for the ride as he explores the slopes, tunnels and cafés of Val Blanc – and the results are out of this world. Make sure you watch until the end.
