2 of the world's best mountaineerers are back with a new season of steep skiing action and mountaineering advice. Tony Lamiche and Alex Pittin have been visiting three zones at the start of this season, which so far has consisted in a lot of precipitation and wind. A lot of heavy precipitations and record strong winds in the mountains have pushed Tony and Alex to explore these three zones in search of the areas with less avalanche risks. Those important amounts of snow bring a certain humbleness and alertness and imposes a cautious attitude whether it be in the forest, in the transition zone or in the alpine areas whilst steep slope skiing.

Ski-mountaineering, steep-slope skiing, extreme skiing are disciplines rarely practiced, but brought to near-perfection by the two athletes. There's a reason why Tony & Alex prefer to call it "mountain skiing"; it requires going down steep slopes that certain people climb, it also requires a lot of technical knowledge, as well as a good understanding of this unique environment
