Richard Permin is an absolute beast of a freeskier. He makes massively daunting Alaskan lines look like child’s play, after charging past avalanche slabs and sending 60 foot cliffs to perfect transition.
Richie looks at terrain differently to anyone else, finding hits to spin off and transitions to land on in areas others avoid. He spends his seasons filming with Matchstick Productions, spending months in Alaska scoping new zones to shred. His film segments are truly inspiring and show his passionate, no compromise attitude; he simply wants to push the limits of skiing in his own way.
