History of Freeride: Episode 3 - 70's Chamonix Part 2

A Ski video by perfectmoment - 7,175 views



Crazy inventions like plastic wings replacing ski poles, an abundence of mad monoskis, another heathy serving of facial hair, and the exciting original appearance of Perfect Moment Founder, Thierry Donard, make this our favourite episode yet.

This is the third part of our look back on the last 30 years of Freeride Sports. This episode shows us the beginning of the freeride movement in Chamonix, way back in the 70's when skiers were first heading up the Aiguille du Midi to ski the awesome glaciers at the top, and the original freeriders were charging on the Grand Montets.

Thanks to Nuit de la Glisse's original Director, Dick Barrymore for the Footage.
