Hold my beer while a take a run, will ya?  Actually, it’s Candide Thovex, professional athlete, making a spectacular run off-piste somewhere in the Alps.  Some might say this kind of extreme skiing is irresponsible; others might say there is skill here to be admired.  Whatever your stance on this kind of dramatic skiing activity, you have to say this 30-second video clip gives you an emotional hit. Did we mention the two avalanches?

How say you? Folly? Finesse?  Other?  Let us know.

By the way, SeniorsSkiing.com has another video clip of Candide Thovex here, doing his thing at the Val Blanc.
