The Chamonix Experience - #Find_Away: Episode 4

Through the windows of the Aiguille du Midi cable car some of the most technical and high-consequence ski terrain in the world can be observed—for only the price of a ticket—but stepping through the door to put yourself at the top of one of those lines requires much more. In the this film by Bjarne Salén, Episode 4 in our Find Away series, skiers “American Dave” Rosenbarger and Kye Petersen mix years of mastery and an intuition for the rhythms of the unpredictable high alpine to get the full Chamonix experience.
