Epic TV: Skin Up, Ep. 1. Ski Touring Skills Lead To Insane Virgin Powder Lines In Italy
These skiers just found the best way to prepare for a five-day backcountry ski tour from Chamonix to Zermatt - by skiing untracked pow in Lombardia, Italy. Adrien Coirier and Jérémy Prévost live to charge big lines but they are more accustomed to heli drops than slapping on the climbing skins and earning their turns. So in preparation of their upcoming Haute Route trip they head to a typical rifugio (mountain hut) in Lombardia to meet local mountain guide, Giuliano, who welcomes them with legendary Italian hospitality, teaches them the joy of skinning up, and turns them on to some amazing skiing.
