WATCH: Candide Thovex Drops Another Insane Video

by Kirsten Dobroth | April 27, 2017

Candide Thovex is at it again; Thovex has dropped a viral video that’s sure to make your head spin and leaving you itching for pow. Haven’t heard of Candide? He’s the French skier who’s known for his insane point-of-view videos that find him jumping over helicopters, ripping down snow-less slopes, and being one of — if not — the greatest freeskier in the history of the sport. Check out his newest video, released on his Facebook page, which — in true Candide Thovex fashion — finds him throwing down on some massive terrain features. And if this video leaves you feeling inspired, get your fix at one of the resorts still open in North America (all the more incentive — it’s dumping out west right now) before the 2016/17 season is officially in the books.
