Eagle with Camera Buzzes Skiers on Aiguille du Midi, France

SnowBrains |

Going for a ski down the Valle Blanche off the Aiguille du Midi in Chamonix, France is always fun.  It’s likely a bit more fun if you bring your trained golden eagle along.  And even a touch more fun to mount a camera on your eagle while skiing the Valle Blanche.

It’s fascinating to watch the eagle’s head move around and gather information as it soars in the skies above the Aiguille du Midi.  It reminds me a bit of bush pilots in Alaska as they hold a course or a turn, yet bob their heads around gathering information and calculating their next move.

Yes, it would be incredible to be an eagle.
