WATCH: The Bec des Rosses Shredded With On Screen Analytics

“It’s actually so steep that skiers and snowboarders can only see a few metres ahead of them – the terrain’s so inclined that it literally drops away out of view after that, and the next thing you see’s the arrival zone some 600m lower.”

Is not a secret that The Bec is one of the gnarliest faces on earth but the Freeride World Tour Xtreme Verbier competition venue is even more intimidating when you have a look at the analytics of a trip down.

Xavier De Le Rue is at home on The Bec (can you believe how calm his voice is as he narrates his run) but you better believe he rolls with his trusty ice axe in hand because if you lose an edge on this 55° pitch, its a long long long way down….I know you’re not supposed to run with scissors but is snowboarding at nearly 50mph with an axe okay?
