The short and sweet:
Mixing high-alpine mountaineering with steep skiing is always a battle. Here, conditions aligned just enough for skier Yannick Boissenot and snowboarder Julien “Pica” Herry to make the first descent of the Beuf-Sara couloir, accessed from the top of the Aguille du Midi in Chamonix, France. Heart-pounding is an understatement. Watch at your own risk.
