French skier Laurent "Lolo" Favre is well-known for his creative approach to features and tricks alike. Here, Favre grabs blunt while launching off the central kicker of the Nine Knights feature into an opposing wall. This maneuver is also known as a "redirect" because the skier lands on a transition facing in a different direction than his take-off. "It's massive, but it's not that scary because as soon as you jump, you're just looking straight to the wall," said Favre.
