Quarantine got you in need of a little excitement? here’s something to pick you up: French ripper Sam Favret just dropped his 2017 movie “Waking Life” online for free.

A Chamonix local, Sam is known for his unique mix of freestyle and freeride talent. After making a name for himself on the Freeride World Tour and at events like Red Bull Linecatcher, lately Sam has delivered with impressive video projects like “Natural Mystic” and “The Classic Route”—a top-to-bottom run through Chamonix’s legendary Vallée Blanche.

Though Sam’s skiing is known for playfulness and freestyle-freeride fusion, “Waking Dream” shows Sam on a more serious tip. Together with his friend, the legendary Cham guide Julien “Pica” Herry and a film crew, Sam puts tracks on a variety of mind-numbingly steep lines around the Chamonix Valley, including an attempted first descent of the Aiguille du Peigne northeast ramp.

Yeah… that’s a hard “no” from us on that line. Sam and Pica finding some “bon ambience” in the Argentiere basin. Photo: Bernard

Hit play and join Sam, Pica and friends on a camping trip in the Argentiere Basin and an edge-of-your-seat ride down classics like the Col de la Verte, Aiguille du Remue and the Pain du Sucre. If you can’t get outside and are in need of a bit of adrenaline, this video will certainly do the trick. If it gets you piqued to go to France and ski the gnar yourself, make sure to take a look at our Ski Bum’s Guide to Chamonix.
