Most ski films are detached from the reality most of us live in day in and day out. There is usually a helicopter involved, perhaps some remote location where you would go only to film skiing. At the very least, there is usually a custom park built with massive hits no sane ski resort would ever open to the public.

Then there’s the new edit from Candide Thovex, aptly titled "One of Those Days 2." Shot entirely through a POV cam, Thovex’s clip takes place entirely at his home resort of La Balme, France. The snow is tracked up. The entire video is filmed in-bounds. It is, in short, the kind of skiing anyone can get with the price of a lift ticket. Only Thovex skis it like a video game. And, predictably, the Internet has gone nuts over it (almost 2.5 million views), with some of the most decorated ski stars singing its praises.

Mike Douglas popularized the concept of ski webisodes with the launch of Salomon Freeski TV nine years ago:

Cody Townsend was the last skier to send the Internet aflutter with his insane line from Matchstick Productions' "Days of My Youth":

Thovex’s edit is clearly more than just a day of him going out skiing. A lot of planning, building, and logistics obviously went into the production of the edit, which features him jumping over a ski racer, jumping over a ski patroller, and skiing through a tunnel, across a deck, and jumping into an open tram car, to name just a few of his feats. Watch the opening scene where Thovex is putting on his goggles in the mirror and you get that this was more than throwing on a GoPro. But while it is definitely highly stylized, "One of Those Days 2" also shows us that you don’t need to fly to Japan to have fun on your skis. You just need a lift ticket.
