  2. These are amazing photos. How I wish we also have snow here in the Philippines. :>

    February 20, 2012 at 6:53 pm

    • @cathy – Just go to where it snows 🙂 Pinoy climate is lovely as it is.

      @cedric – amazing photos. Chamonix is my favourite town in the world, but I’d never get as close to the mountains as much as you did.

  3. These photos are insane! So great. We had powder like mad in Colorado last year and the skiing was more than amazing, but this year has been so depressingly thin….Where did you take these??????
    Congrats on being Freshly Pressed!

    Beautiful pictures! I really love the further away shots where you get to see vastness of the landscape.

    February 20, 2012 at 7:51 pm

  7. Aarrrhhh, insane!!! Some stunning pictures you got there. Is this the French Alps? Or Canada? Just guessing from your name! Let us know!

    February 20, 2012 at 7:58 pm

    • Now I see you have tagged it Chamonix, question answered 🙂

    awesome. Where were these taken?

    February 20, 2012 at 8:02 pm

  9. Amazing, gorgeus but where is that? Thanks

      • Thanks and congrats, for the pics and for the powder days! I’m a bit jealous 😉

        February 22, 2012 at 6:43 am

  10. Great photos. These are some very brave people. God bless you and keep you safe. Connie

    February 20, 2012 at 8:08 pm

  11. Knarly photos! I couldn’t imagine going down a decline like those; INSANE!

    Hey, if anybody’s interested, I’m blogging about my body transformation to six pack abs. Any support would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    February 20, 2012 at 8:18 pm

  12. Powdery indeed!

    February 20, 2012 at 8:23 pm

  13. wow I mean wow. Incredible pics, they really get across just how extreme riding those slopes must be. This is better than the videos one tends to see. Good one!

    February 20, 2012 at 8:31 pm

  14. Makes me wish I was on the mountain. Gorgeous!

    February 20, 2012 at 8:38 pm

  15. These are excellent images, but some of them make it look a little dangerous. I am simply amazed, can not say more.

    February 20, 2012 at 8:49 pm

  16. cpinkney

    Holy moly! Epic pictures sir! I can’t wait to get back out onto the powder. Great work!

    February 20, 2012 at 8:52 pm

  17. Great pictures. Makes me want to go skiing again!

    February 20, 2012 at 8:59 pm

  18. Wow! Looks absolutely amazing, wish I was there! Gorgeous pictures! We’ve got a little snow here in Bonnie Scotland, but nothing comparable!

    February 20, 2012 at 9:14 pm

  19. Great pictures! I’m so jealous.. I’ve always wanted to go big mountain riding. Plus I’m jealous of the powder in general.. it’s quite scarce in the northeast US.

    February 20, 2012 at 9:18 pm

  20. This looks absolutely exhilarating and terrifying at the same time! Perfectly wonderful photos.

    February 20, 2012 at 9:42 pm

  21. Awesome photos, really spectacular scenery and some very talented skiers/snowboarders. I love the yellow ski trousers – perfect colour to be seen. I also particularly like the photo with the bright blue sky and the ropes hanging down on the snow. On the right of the photo looks like a lions head covered in snow – do you see what I mean? I don’t have the skills or guts to do off piste skiing to that level so it’s great that I can get the birds eye view from the comfort of my warm home.

    February 20, 2012 at 10:08 pm

  22. Incredible photos! Getting me so pumped to learn to snowboard…in Iowa. 🙂

    Beautiful…no….these are Epic images. Thank you for sharing and congrats on being Freshly Pressed on your “freshies”.

  25. Amazing! Really gives a sense of scale and danger!

    February 20, 2012 at 11:17 pm

  26. The pictures are awesome! love this blog very much! hope one day, I can get some shoots like this in winter!

    February 20, 2012 at 11:25 pm

  27. Wow! It looks so fantastic to be able to do that! I love skiing, but I would never even dare trying the sport you practice… Great pictures, by the way!

    This is so sick (both the action going on in the photos and the photos themselves). I dream of going places like these!

    Man, I wish my 1 skiing lesson would allow me to do something like that. It’s beautiful and looks plain awesome.

    February 21, 2012 at 12:41 am

  33. The snow is very beautiful, skating on the snow mountain is very cool

    February 21, 2012 at 1:29 am

  34. Please don’t try this at home 🙂

    February 21, 2012 at 1:45 am

  35. These are just awsome. I love black and white photography but the color is great too!!

    C’est magnifique! Je suis très jalouse. Moi aussie j’aime faire le snowboarding mais cette année, je n’ai pas eu beaucoup de chance d’y aller.
    J’suis heureux que quelqu’un pouvait en profiter.

  44. Great power shots. I envy the youth of those who are able to do this. Thanks for sharing this adventure.

    February 21, 2012 at 6:15 am

  45. Snow? What is this snow you speak of?

    Seriously though, Toronto this winter = extinction of snow. I love having the snow go up to my ankles. I remember it snowing a lot last year, but this year, barely anything.

    I’m jealous now. I’ll make a snowball from the frost in the freezer and throw it at someone to make myself feel better.

    Amazing photos, of course.

    February 21, 2012 at 6:27 am

  46. to be honest….

    shots are far from perfect but views are stunning 🙂

  48. much like snow !!!

    February 21, 2012 at 10:23 am

  49. Stunning piccies!!! It takes me back to my snow season in Canada last year….except my snowboarding was nothing like that! Pow pow indeed…

    February 21, 2012 at 10:44 am

  50. I was scared just looking at the pics. The idea of throwing myself off a perfectly good mountain is insane. Good for you for having the guts to do it and the soundness of mind to photograph them for us.

  62. Absolutely stunning pictures. I’m a skier myself but I haven’t been to the French Alps yet. I also am not good enough to be skiing down that steep an incline. Thanks for sharing!

    February 21, 2012 at 5:19 pm

  63. Superb! I really have to come back to Chamonix soon – although my skiing is not of this standard!

    February 21, 2012 at 5:31 pm

  66. Genuinely some of the best snow shots I’ve ever seen right here! Making the skiier look like a tiny dot in a landscape really makes you appreciate the sheer size of the mountains. Keep up the great work!

    February 21, 2012 at 6:08 pm

  67. Spectacular!

    February 21, 2012 at 6:30 pm

  68. Very nice, interesting angles. Chamonix is great!

  69. Amazing photos! And extremely talented snowboarders/skiers!! I’ve got a bit of practicing to do to get to that level 😉

  78. I was beginning to forget what snow looked like. :p Where I live we’ve gotten maybe one snowfall per month in the winter season. We had a very interesting looking Christmas to say the least. A nice mixture of grass and snow. XD

    These are really nice photographs, Cedric. You look like you had a marvelous time skiing in the mountains.

  84. Absolutely no offense intended, but you guys are crazy! What a rush, though, to heli-ski in such an awe inspiring setting. Providing that you live through your next adventure, I’m looking forward to seeing more.

    February 22, 2012 at 6:45 pm

    Wow I think I can say for all the people that love to snowboard like myself that I wish I was there going down those slopes. Not only that but the pictures taken are really in depth and very nice.
