Benny Urban and Dominik Wagner took a summertime trip to the French glacial Mecca of Les Deux Alpes a couple of weeks back to link up with the Garage Camp crew and DVP’s Marco Morandi. Kick off your flip flops, pop a cold beverage and enjoy what went down…
As we reported when we were there at the beginning of last month for Arthur Longo and Olivier Gittler’s Muzelle Festival, Les Deux Alpes had something of a killer winter, which has resulted in the glacier being stacked with snow for this summer’s shred shenanigans. This has allowed the park shapers to pull together an epic setup that – all things being well – should be open pretty deep into August. Bonjour!
Longtime riding buddies Benny Urban and Dominik Wagner decided they wanted a piece of that French summer loving, so boosted over to crash with the Garage Camp crew – a bunc fa dudes who’ve been running summer camps out of a sweet chalet there for several years now. With Different Vision Productions‘ Marco Morandi in the house, this meant they could get busy through the mostly bluebird days and stack shots for this edit.
There are even a couple of cameos from young buck Tommy Demartin and also-still-young-just-not-quite-as-young buck Sebi Springeth. These two gatecrash with a couple of slinky rail and kicker hits before attention switches back to Benny and Dominik.
As well as showcasing their unarguable skills on the stunt sledge, the boys also managed to find time to squeeze in a couple of tasty skate sessions (both dudes are also rather tasty on their useless wooden toys) and they even discovered a new and exciting method of opening those post-session beers. Radical!
