Carpe Diem Episode 14

Les Heires, French Alps
To say Aurelien Routens gets after it is an understatement. He travels the world with his splitboard and lives for adventure, mountaineering style approaches, and remote backcountry lines. Carpe Diem, now in its fourth season, chronicles his globe-trotting splitboard missions. In episode 14 he stays close to home to ride a couple of the majestic peaks he can see from his front door including Les Trois Eveches where he records a first snowboard descent down the west face.
