This Epic Action Sports Video Shows a Skier Freeriding Across the World


French professional skier Candide Thovex teamed up with Audi and created this jaw-dropping action sports short film that shows Thovex freeriding down gorgeous locations around the world in different seasons and different landscapes. It’s been one of the most viral videos on the Web over the past day, and for good reason.

Thovex is widely considered to be one of the greatest freeskiers who has ever lived, and the 35-year-old athlete scoured the planet for the perfect locations to show off what he can do without any snow. Thovex and a crew visited places across Europe, America, and Asia in their journey, hitting the slopes of everything from volcanoes to the Great Wall of China.

In the end, they managed to capture gorgeous shots of Thovex in sand, jungle, volcanic ash, stone, soil, and even water.

The project is titled, “Ski the World.” You can read more about it over on the Audi website, and you can also find more of Thovex’s amazing videos on his YouTube channel.
