Backcountry, to me, mean going far away from slope and whatever human modified sh*t (except a shovel made kicker, of course): cliffs, virgin snow, tight forest, you know what I mean: this is the real sh*t ! Am I right ?

On day 4, Back to powder hit the real **beeep** again: a field of nice kicker shaped in the backcountry of Arêche Beaufort – France, and when i see these pics of Arnaud Rougier shredding this playground, i just want to say: “oulala c’est très très bon”:

(ps: these pics are from Elina Sirparanta, the tiniest Finnish action photographer settled in France)
