For centuries, conquering the Mont Blanc massif range around Chamonix has been a pilgrimage for mountaineers looking to prove themselves in the French Alps. The steeps off Aiguille du Midi alone are enough to put any skier to the test. Utah based big mountain skier Marcus Caston, Canadian World Cup racer Erin Mielzynski, and Swedish Olympian Mattias Hargin join forces in Chamonix to take on the legendary mountain range, aided by world champion freerider and Chamonix local Aurélien Ducroz. Together, this unlikely group of skiers embark on a mountaineering adventure that could only be found in Chamonix.
