After two-years off the ski scene with a back injury and a series of surgeries, Candide Thovex showed up at the Red Bull Linecatcher event in early January, won easily, and pushed off to dominate the Freeride World Tour and secure the overall title just a couple weeks ago. Lest we forget Candide once dominated at Winter X Games, he dropped Candide Kamera 2 on us last week to reaffirm his big air prowess. If the masterfully done video short didn’t whet your whistle for Candide, make sure to add photographer Christoffer Sjöström’s coffee-table quality The Book of Candide to your summer reading list. (Photo: C.
