Allowing it to pre-buffer helps for me.

Press Play, then Pause, and wait a while until the gray bar gets way across the screen. Turning off HD helps it load faster.

You can also look for it on utube,
although the quality is usually subpar compared to vimeo.

Lot of exposed scrambling with ski's on pack. A few steep ski bits that didn't look too bad ..Very cool shots.. but I wanna see way more skiing!

Why does everything the French present have a high level of ambiguity regarding what was accomplished ?

What rings for me is their vibe.

To be able after living in and for those mtns to have it come together and have the friends to push, share and coax each other. Nothing compares. What a life!

Did you bother to watch the clip Jim?

If you did, then you will realize it's just a teaser for a film of Vivian Bruchez skiing new routes in Chamonix with his friends not a dick waving list of accomplishments ticked off on an excel spreadsheet.

The full length version is well worth the $9 cost to purchase. Pretty incredible steep skiing!

edit - here's an older Seb Montaz video from a few years ago, with Vivian Bruchez, who is in the latest film.

I have an invite to head up to Terrence to film some skiing around the my mountain coop hill and just needed to kill some time.

Goatly,

It's early and the rock skiing is abundant. Have patience, ULLR will deliver but for now B.C. is experiencing huge Arctic outflows to the coast. It makes for cold, windy blue skies but little precipitation.

I keep tripping over the fatty boards I've placed center, on the living room rug.

Take my word, from personal experience: if you fall skiing on sh#t like that you will get hurt so bad that you'll never be able to climb again.

Although skiing is a whole more fun than climbing.

I hate you. I keep bleeding all over my living room rug from cutting myself on the 80-degree bevel I've ground into my edges for skiiing boiler-plate ice here out east.

It's interesting to me how the GoPro footage captures the joy, and trepidation amongst friends. Movies have a very hard time achieving what this little homespun film delivers. Ironic - as I have spouted about my dislike of the "dig-me" culture that the GoPro footage creates? Guess I'd better open up my mind.

Those scenes getting through the rocks with big league exposure, friends coaching each other and the deep smiles activate me in a way that I haven't been stimulated buy film in a long time.

Good Vibes to all!

In a corporate function the founder of gopro which is now a 2 billion dollar a year company explained that go pro is the first usable camera that allows one to actually document themselves in a way never before done.
This clip is just another example of how we find each other interesting from the pov of the individual you are watching. You can actually see what it's like to have the stones to ski right off a cliff and free fall Into a base and land and walk away.

Pretty cool.

I like in this clip the ice axe getting caught on the binding. Doooh.

Vivian is my daughters ski coach, he's a really good guy, good climber and skier... he's also a certified UIAGM guide and works with the prestigious Compagnie des Guides. The things those boys are skiing these days are quite serious, falling isn't an option. I find it interesting how comfortable they in that space, their laughing and joking most of the time, it's a good sign of their character and coolness.
