Born in Chamonix by Daniel Rönnbäck

As a third generation Chamonaird, and no formal mountaineering experience in his family, Tof Henry spent his childhood curious of those who skied the surrounding 4000 meter peaks. Soon determined to be the fastest big mountain skier in the world, Tof transitioned all his energy towards skiing. Through the evolution of ski equipment and safety, mentorship by some of the most renowned big mountain skiers of our time, and a heart full of passion and drive, Tof develops an evolutionary vision for skiing the void. Born to the mountains of Chamonix and safety of the valley, Tof is faced with great loss and sadness following the death of mother and transition away from his family. Turning his energy towards his savor mother Aiguille Du Midi and passion for skiing, he brings light and happiness back into his life, and inspiration to pass his experience to his son.

"I spent 2 years and in total 5 month in Chamonix in the winter, and 3 month editing this project.

Im super stoked on how it turned out. This is a no budget movie production. So far i spent 9000€ from my own saved money to make it happen. Armada has supported to add one filmer when i have not been in Chamonix. 
So i spent 8 month working with no payment at all. For me this is not about money, its about telling a story about the PURE passion for skiing, the evolution of steep skiing and the heritage of Chamonix. A story about a young boy that had everything and lost it all, and true skiing found his way back to life. Raising his son and sharing what he love.
Some things that need to be noted during this film we never used any guides, we didnt get any help or support from Chamonix or any one else, we only used drones and normal cameras to film it. The only helli we used was the lover part that we used it as a tour helli trip. Thats why we missed the upper part because we were not allowed to fly before 12, and they needed to start to ski it before because of the sun and heating temps.
As well Tof skied over 40 different lines in first track powder during this year, just that is impressive in one way.
His ski performance is almost unreal! Its a foot powered movie, built on passion, blood and love.
I hope you like it. And i hope you will help me get it out to some stoked ski loving people.  And if you ever go to Chamonix. Tof will take care of you. And show you his home.
ENJOY and thanks for supporting, sharing and love to skiing."
