If you're a fan of steep skiing, then you surely know Mt Blanc. The iconic alpine peak sits at 4,810m in between France and Italy – making it the perfect target for the second ascent in Aaron Durogati's Red Bull Peaks Trilogy project.

After bagging the summit, the South Tyrolean athlete flew from the Italian side using his speed-riding rig to skirt along the wall on the southwest side – known for big snow slides and mighty cliffs.
