Speed Ride Guide – Chamonix

22 Feb

Over the past few weeks, we’ve noticed that there is a paucity of Speed Riding videos that actually help you make safe decisions on where and when to speed ride.  Lift maps simply have a little orange symbol over an off piste area, which to the inexperienced pilot can be quite daunting. Over the rest of this ski season, Dan, Oli and Ali will be putting together some YouTube videos that as well as being fun, will also aim to educate and help pilots find the best areas and chose to fly them in the right conditions.  On Sunday, we flew at the Flegere area for the first time, the top right off the piste is very easy, but there are a lot of cables to cross to fly safely to the valley floor.  We’ll be putting together videos for the Brevent, Grand Montets and Valley Blanche over the coming weeks.
