The ski industry is full of creative minds that churn out inspiring photos and videos daily, and with so much visual stimulus available to us normal skiers and snowboarders, sometimes it can all blend together. Then comes along a ski video that’s just plain mind-blowing. Whether it’s a groundbreaking cinematic technique like Sweetgrass Productions’ Afterglow segment or an inspirational edit like Jackson Hole’s pre-season preview, the truly exceptional ski videos stand out among the rest.
Last week we saw a new ski video that certainly falls into the “mind-blowing” category. Candide Thovex’s “One of those days 2” appears to be a fairly straightforward POV edit at his home resort Val Blanc. However, this skier’s unbelievable skill takes this ski video from average to OMG-level and has garnered 5.7 million views in a mere four days.
