Exploring “impassable and unthinkable routes” in Chamonix in trailer for “DownSide Up”

Comments by Donny O'Neill/

DownSide Up is a ski mountaineering film that comes from filmmaker Sebastien Montaz-Rosset, and it follows “the unshakeable” Vivian Bruchez around his backyard of Chamonix. The film also stars “steep skiing legend” Pierre Tardival, “ultra terrestrial” Kilian Jornet, and “totally gnarly freeride champion” Douds Charlet. According to the Vimeo description, “previously impassable and unthinkable routes become a tangible reality when skill, experience and conditions align.” The film is now available and can be downloaded here.
