Nikolai Schirmer Rallies an All-Star Crew to Score December Spines in France

It’s never an easy adventure for Nikolai Schirmer. The ski content mastermind seems to stay scheming for incredible missions. Sometimes it’s his own idea, and sometimes it’s brought to him by friends. After all, it’s who you know that matters. In this epic voyage, mountain guide Tom Grant dials up Schirmer to pursue some insane lines in Chamonix, France. To ski a line like this is remarkable, and to be able to do so as early in the season as December is even more wild.

Great snow towards the end of 2023 provided for the crew. A proper 3 a.m. wake up, skin from the valley floor and hearty boot pack up the mountainside; now that’s one hell of a day. Schirmer and Grant are joined by Jacob Webster (Swedish Pretty Boy), Krister Kopala (Norwegian Big Boy) and Mathurin Vauthier (Young. Strong.) Shout out to Schirmer for the wonderful crew descriptions! Tap into the heart-pounding world of giant lines and good times in the big-mountain mecca of Chamonix.

Up the valley and around the bend. The promised land. December spines. A skier’s dream.
