FATMAP CONVERSATIONS:

XAVIER DE LA RUE

 

Overview

Xavier de la Rue. A name synonymous with snowsports. We all know him for his big mountain snowboarding movies, but now he’s on a new adventure. Just Xav (and his wife Beanie), a drone and a camper van. This made us wonder…

  • How does he discover new areas?
  • How does he choose the right line to ski that day?
  • Just what is the DIY project?

Find out why Xavier said “FATMAP is nuts…” and where he plans on snowboarding this season. From hanging out with Aurelien Ducroz in Chamonix to planning adventures with his little brother in Russia. We caught up with him on all this at his home in Verbier.
