Watch the inhospitable, sharp peaks transform into a playground for the intrepid. Victor de le Rue, French backcountry snowboard master, tackles a mountain that has long obsessed him: the Chamonix Massif. 

"A frozen mind is when someone finds themselves fixated on an idea, a purpose – and do everything to achieve it. This trip has been my obsession and to successfully take on these demanding slopes with Pierre makes it that much more fulfilling."
