Posted By: The Ski Channel on February 23, 2011 10:50 am

When most of us have a little time on our hands we chill out and maybe take a break from skiing or riding.  Not Xavier De Le Rue.  With a lack of snow in Europe, one of the best snowboarders on the planet is featured in this video trying to manage sluff and ice when the conditions aren’t ideal. Taking you from Chamonix to St. Moritz and stops along the way to ride couloirs that are absolutely incredible, he talks about managing sluff and how dangerous it is.  Then he gets into talk about ice and how he wants to ride over it.  At 4:40 in the video two riders rally a huge ice face and then he targets an ice wall for himself.  Amazing!  North Face and Swatch bring these amaznig episodes to your computer.  Thanks guys!
