Epic TV: A La Française Ep. 6. Guillaume Harleaux and Friends Shred Through Avalanches in the Alps

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.

At the confluence of resorts like Flaine, Samoens, Les Carroz, Sixt, Morillon is an area called 'le Grand Massif' which, unlike most of the Alps this winter, got huge amounts of snow. In the new episode of A La Française, the crew visits Guillaume Harleaux at his home in Les Carroz d'Arache and gets some great helicopter footage of him and his friends attacking the Grand Massif. Every morning when the shelling stops the boys are on it. Aymeric Cloerec and Bertrand Clair join Guillaume for a couple of insane powder days in 60 cm deep snow.
