French professional skier Candide Thovex has been at the top of the freeski game since the start of the last decade, and the 32-year-old on Friday dropped a five-minute point-of-view video demolishing his home mountain, La Clusaz, in the French Alps. We’re still wrapping our minds around how he got a POV shot of himself putting his goggles on without a GoPro in the frame, never mind the terrifying cave he drops into or the switch landing into a gondola. Just watch.
