Richard Permin, aka ‘the freeskier in the red jacket,’ is back with an insanely mesmerizing ski video.

The latest freeskiing film, “FASTWOOD,” follows Permin as he flies down some slopes amongst the French glaciers.

In just the first 5 seconds, you get the exacting, sharp sounds of wind and speed — not to mention the gorgeous drone cinematics that come along with it.

“FASTWOOD” was produced by PVS Company and directed by Maxime Moulin and Richard Permin, who also stars in the project.
