Glen Plake's Chamonix

Prečo je Chamonix domovom milovníkov lezenia, lyžovania a nebezpečenstva? Pretože tu žijú už desaťročia ľudia, ktorí sa k horám správajú tak, aby ich neničili ale využívali v prospech života. Viac v dokumente očami legendy Glena Plakeho.

“Chamonix has a reputation worldwide as one of the greatest ski towns on earth; a lot of serious skiing, serious climbing, just big and dangerous and cool,” says Tom Runcie of Crested Butte, Colo. Along with CJ Carter, of Bozeman, Mont., Runcie headed to the French Alps two seasons back to ski alongside Glen Plake as part of a contest thrown by Julbo. And following the trip, Julbo produced this short film about their week chasing the legend around his grand stomping grounds. “He has something to say about every peak, and it’s really neat to experience that and have him as a guide,” Runcie says. For his part, Carter calls it “kind of surreal.”
