In this episode of #STEEP the boys head to the rarely skied south face of Mont Blanc du Tacul. The first reason it's rarely skied is because its hard to see. The second reason is because it has sustained gradients of between 50 and 55 degrees. Yikes. Luckily, Christophe, Lambert, and Pierre live for this type of Adventure. With just one rappel and a bit of trash talk they make it down in style, even after the clouds come in and they have to power through some scarily low visibility.
If this Mountain Were any Steeper these Guys would Be BASE Jumping | #STEEP, Ep. 3
Steep season has started! In the shape of short episodes, this series will let you discover the steep couloirs of Mont Blanc. Although our skiing is extreme, we focus on having fun with our friends. Each episode will try and portray our spirit of sharing and friendship around the practice of the mountain. Unlike big productions that tend to sensationalize this practice, our approach remains humble and humane.
So I hopeour vision of skiing in the mountains comes through these episodes and see you there one day!"
