Insane First-Person Freestyle Ski Run

Even Roger Moore’s 007 would have trouble matching the on and off piste skills of Candide Thovex.
 
The French freestyler is a skier like no other, and has amassed a real cult following down the years thanks to acrobatic skills and high-octane flair captured on short films.
 
His latest, One of those days 2, should win him a few more fans - taking us on a first-person run down his home mountain Val Blanc, he hurtles at some serious speed, slaloming around obstacles mere mortals might find themselves injured on, flipping with ease, grinding rails where he deems it necessary, it’s almost annoying how effortless he makes it all seem.
 
The money shot comes when he takes us deep down into a cave, speeding down into the darkness before emerging to face a ramp on which he takes off with pleasure.
 
We hope he ordered a Vespa Martin when he reached the bottom.
