Maxim Aresnault sounds like the name of an assassin in a French spy thriller. But it's also a pretty awesome name for a big mountain skier. Dude literally assaults the mountains, bombing huge sketchy lines others might not think about. This clip starts with a bunch of Occupy Wall Street footage and then fades into Aresnault heli-skiing, which doesn't make a whole lot of sense. Heli-skiing is mostly for the 1 percent. But of course, skiing is a pretty soulful pursuit and spending your time shedding mountains rather than spending your life bilking others out of their money is one way to support the movement. Ski bums have been occupying rich resort towns for ages. We're way ahead of this OWS game. Let's hope the heli time was paid for.
