Hard not to appreciate the visual beauty and spectacle which emanates from Chamonix, Mont-Blanc Germany. This breathtaking locale is where the best in pro-snowboarding come to train, right on the Couloir Des Cosmioues – a mountain range that sports an altitude of 3,695 meters and a 45-50 degree slope. Enter Marion Haerty, the French pro-snowboarding sensation.
Confident, ambitious, and crazy talented: this is how fellow snowboarders describe Haerty. Don’t let her unassuming stature lead you astray, Haerty is a bona-fide badass – she hits it all: rails, jumps, flips. Word is she’s been killing it in the professional circuit, and has established herself in the snowboarding community as a true and tried ripper.
Take the precedent of her absolute dominance in the 2017, Freeride World Tour – **spoiler alert** – she swept the competition and took the title home, effectively securing her status as a world champion. Fear doesn’t appear to be a word Hearty knows (and we’ve got video evidence to prove it!)
With hearty reserve (get it!?) and the skills to match, Haerty sets her sights on a 95-point run for the tour, for which she will have to push herself to new and exciting heights. Peep the video to watch Haerty develop her edge in her effort to secure the coveted number 1 spot on the third stop of the Freeride World Tour.
Her run can be seen at 6:00. (pst, be sure to follow her IG while you’re at it)
