Trauma Tuesday: Candide Thovex Too Huge Double Huck Edition

Even if you are one of the best, most famous, most accomplished free skiers in the game, you can still blow it. Candide Thovex proves this when he carries “just a bit” too much speed into this booster and overshoots it, by a lot. Love the cloud of cold smoke that erupts after we lose sight of him over the ridge. Has a very cartoony feel, like you would expect him to come waddling back flat as a pancake or just covered in black soot like a bomb had exploded.

I love cartoons.

On the flip side, here is what happens when you come up short. A TGR segment from Chad’s Gap in 2000, back when jumps were always a wildcard.
