When extreme winter sports and creative filmmaking collide


The season is coming to a close, but at its peak, winter sports are where it’s at here in Colorado. Some businesses even have a powder-day clause. This post is a celebration of what happens when two of our favorite thingscreative filmmaking and extreme winter sports–collide.

Candide Thovex is the only person who can make a cliffside parachute skier seem tame. Whatever he does, when Candide Thovex dons a GoPro and some skis: get ready for the ride of a lifetime. Hint: stealing a horse is the least of it. Another epic ski video featuring a camel but no snow, will also leave skiers itching for a powder day and filmmakers scratching their heads.

Even after a look behind the scenes, anyone who spends time behind a camera will still be left trying to figure out how it was all done.

Below are some of the behind the scenes images from Candide Thovex’s Instagram account.
