Epic TV: STEEP, Ep. 1. Here's How You Ski One of the Hardest Lines in the Alps Like a Boss

Pierre Hourticq and Lambert Galli are two young guys who love steep skiing. They recently did an incredibly hard line with inclines of between 50 and 55 degrees on the mythically fierce face of Pain de Sucre near the Aiguille du Midi and the Envers du Plan. Whereas the line usually requires a few rappels, these hardcore mountain men did it with only one. It's steep, it's narrow, and the conditions are amazing. Witness an incredible moment for skiing and an incredible moment between two really good friends.
