Speedflying the french alps

Director: Ian Rinefort
5 minutes

Ever wonder what it would feel like to soar like a bird? Well that’s pretty much what speedflying is – strapping into a wing while clipped into a pair of skis. Really, it’s like a cheat code for skiing, unlocking your ability to go literally anywhere on a mountain and hit speeds you didn’t realize were possible. Carl Weiseth and Jeff Katz took to the sport early on and are bringing it to a new level in the French Alps, putting ski tracks on faces that have never been accessed before, and capturing it in a fully immersive way through FPV drones from pilot Ian Rinefort.
