Meet the ski patrol serving La Clusaz, a classic ski resort in the Rhone-Alpes region of France. From Neal Quenet, the team’s youngest patroller at just 22, to Bruno Vionnet-Fuasset, 61, “Beyond the Pistes” is a filmic portrait of the 38 ski patrollers of La Clusaz—what drives them to spend all winter in the mountains, where their passion for patrol comes from, what they love about the mountains. They’re busy too. Last year alone the team made 695 rescues.
