Laurent De Martin was born and raised in front of the Dents du Midi. This past winter with his local friends, he invited skiers from different countries to have good times & to enjoy the amazing possibilities of street and backcountry skiing the Région Dents du midi offers. This 30 minutes of fun and culture has stoked my interest in spending time skiing in Switzerland.
The Dents du Midi (French: “teeth of noon”) are a multi-summited mountain situated in the Chablais Alps in the Swiss canton of Valais. They are composed of seven distinct summits and reach a height of 3257 metres (10,686 feet). Highest mountain between Lake Geneva and the Mont Blanc Massif, they dominate the Val-d’Illiez and the Rhône Valley, from Martigny down to the lake.
Laurent De Martin was part of the Swiss Slopestyle team for several years and a Swiss champion title in 2013. Since then, he focused on shooting videos. He also had the opportunity to film segments for 4 years with the American production company, Level 1 Productions, the largest company in the freeski industry.
During the 18/19 season, he started a new season with Level 1 to produce images for the 20th and last film. In addition to that, Laurent produced his own web-series with the filmmaker Titouan Bessire. The episodes of “From Switzerland with Love” were released every two weeks on social networks.
