It may look like nothing more than a picturesque mountain.
But look closely and you'll spot the daredevil freeskier gliding down its 12,650-ft slopes.
The breathtaking photos, captured in France, see 28-year-old native Sam Favret nearly washed out by plumes of the powdery snow as he gracefully descends the near-vertical peaks of Les Courtes mountains, in the Bassin d’Argentiere region of Chamonix.
Photographer Jeremy Bernard, who lives in the Alps and had the hard job of capturing Mr Favret from a helicopter, remarked: 'It's so much fun and so beautiful from the sky, but I'm always conscious of safety.
'Anything can happen and we need to be able to have radio contact at all times.'
Mr Favret grew up in the Alps and descends from three generations of high altitude mountain guides. He has been skiing all his life, and is also well-known for his death-defying stunts inside glaciers.
