Candide Thovex skis the Great Wall of China
Candide and Audi partner up to Ski the World.
Candide Thovex is known around the world for his ability to to perform the impossible on a pair of skis. His “One of those days” video series has clocked up more than 38 million views in total, and yet his latest clip – in partnership with Audi – might just be his best. Why? Well, for a start, there’s no snow.
In a video titled “Ski the world” Candide takes on various locations around the globe, carving up grass, sand, water, jungle, volcanic ash, stone and earth … basically anything but the white stuff.
The “stone” section features the acclaimed French skier skiing flat out down sections of the Great Wall of China, which may well be a first. He was clearly not interested in the country’s ski resorts, one of which (Thaiwoo) actually sits next to an unrestored section of the wall. Maybe next time.
