Ski Madness: Grinding the Lift Line

Antoine Montant blows minds by skiing/flying down Chamonix and grinding a chairlift on the way down. Whoah.

The best part of BACKPACKER's Fall gear Guide—other than having an excuse to ski for work—is getting to cover the nuttier sides of backcountry skiing. Take for instance Frenchy Antoine Montant, who decides flying down Chamonix isn't impressive enough; he then grinds his way down a tram line. Jebus.

Well, that's one way to show the lift line who's boss.
