No Snow? No Worries — At Least for Candide Thovex

According to Candide Thovex’s X-Games profile page, the French skier “has a natural feel for transitions.” After watching this short clip that the French athlete posted to Twitter, I’m inclined to agree.

In the clip, Thovex slides nimbly down a patchy, mostly snowless slope before catching huge air with a quaint cabin in the background.

Again, I should say there’s precious little snow to be had at his landing site (Thovex titled the clip “dry times.”) But the Frenchman manages to find some anyway!

Check it out.
