Epic TV: A La Française Ep. 1. When Locals Show You Where to Freeride Ski, They Don't Disappoint

French Skiing. French Riders. No Baguettes. This is a journey into the entire French ski scene brought to you by some of the best French riders on the planet. Ride with ze crew as they travel throughout the Alps and the Pyrenees, dropping, jibbing, freeriding and sessioning some of the best spots in France. Vive le freeski, vive les montagnes - this is A French Winter.



Amazing landscapes, fresh and untracked powder and lines that will blow your mind - that's what happens when a local shows you where to go. Freeride skiers Aymeric Cloerec, Bertrand Clair and Guillaume Harleaux were looking for good snow conditions early in the winter, so they decided to head to the only place with snow - the Pyrénées - and its famous "Pic du Midi" at the Grand Tourmalet. They met with Manu Bonniot, a local rider, and discovered a huge backyard for incredible and breathtaking freeride skiing in an unforgettable landscape. The snow was perfect, the sun shining and the riders at the top of their game - and so ensued three perfect days of at the Top of the Pyrénées! Thanks to all the staff of the Grand Tourmalet - Pic du Midi for their welcome!
