6th November 2011
The French extreme snowboarder and Olympic athlete shows how its done. Deep powder lines down some of the most stunning faces in the mountains. Here’s a trailer of his latest film.
Xavier de Le Rue features in this film that takes extreme snowboarding to a new level.
Some of the shots look as though they are on almost vertical terrain.
“This is my Winter” features Xavier de Le Rue and a few other riders including Mathieu Crepel, Andreas Fransson and Samuel Anthamatten.
“A movie giving mountain lovers a unique chance to experience the mountain from Xavier de Le Rue’s point of view when the serious business starts,” states the PR for the film.
The makers also admit last seaosn in the Alps, with poor snowfall in mnay places, was not the ideal winter to shoot such a film but they reckon they foudn the best of what was on offer.
“While one of the worst winter season strikes Europe TimeLine crew relentlessly sought the best spots and conditions along with Xavier’s friends and riding partners to deliver the best possible part for standard films TB20 movie.”
