Free Rider

Director: Jérôme Tanon
With : Samuel Anthamatten and Victor Delerue 

After "Zabardast", the director Jérôme Tanon is back with a film that once again marvelously mixes humor, magnificent landscapes, intimate questioning, poetry and big committed descents! Heading to Alaska, the land of "spines", its bewitching and technical snow shoulders, in the company of Victor Delerue (double Freeride world champion) and Sam Anthamatten, well known to regulars of Montagne en Scène. A funny and immersive film, which will make you want to go to the great outdoors and enjoy the powder!

The Wanderers of Mount Logan

Duration: 40 minutes (VOFR)

Director : Mathieu Rivoire
With : Hélias Millerioux, Thomas Delfino, Alex Marchesseau and Grégory Douillard

At 5959m, Mount Logan is the second highest peak in North America, and certainly one of the wildest mountains in the world. To reach it, Hélias Millerioux, Alex Marchesseau, Thomas Delfino and Gregory Douillard did not choose the easy option. The approach is done on foot and on skis, in total autonomy, with 80kg per person to carry over hundreds of kilometers of moraines and tormented glaciers! Direction the east ridge, whose 4000 meters of vertical drop have never been skied before, before a return to the ocean by raft... A total adventure, between friends, in a hostile but grandiose nature... Magical!

From the shadow to the light

The adventure of a lifetime, extreme, intimate, magnificently told by the director Sébastien Montaz-Rosset who was there to follow Charles.
