Candide Thovex is back with yet another mind-melting freestyle skiing edit, One of Those Days 3, and although it’s only been out for about 20 minutes, it’s already blowing up the internet.

“At one stage he punches an old school skier and grabs his horse, a minute later he’s dangling beneath a helicopter”

Rumours had been swirling for a while that the legendary French freeskier was planning a follow up to the insane One of Those Days and its sequel, and two days ago he got his fans frothing by dropping this picture.

Almost there

The combination of crazy tricks and mental antics (at one stage he punches an old school skier and grabs his horse, a minute later he’s dangling beneath a helicopter!) pretty much guarantee that this edit will be a surefire hit.

But while today’s youngsters might know Candide primarily as a viral star, this is in fact just the latest in a long line of ground-breaking achievements over the course of his long career.

Starting out as a mogul skier, he won the French National Championships back in 1996, he went on to pioneer new school freestyle, winning pretty much every international competition going in the 2000s, including multiple X Games medals.

He then took a step back from the competition scene and proceeded to rewrite the rule book when it came to backcountry skiing, releasing a series of seminal movies that combined his trademark huge tricks with technical lines.

But as the newsreel clips from the start of One of Those Days 3 show, it’s his latest incarnation as an internet sensation that has attracted the Frenchman the most attention yet.

So the question remains, is Candide Thovex only now hitting his stride? And if so, what’s next?
