    The Last Valley

    In this Flipbook, Drew Tabke, Caroline George, and photographer Christian Pondella follow Gilles Sierro, one of the world's foremost steep skiers, around his home in Arolla, Switzerland. Seemingly lost in time, Arolla is the rare, authentic Alpine village where little has changed in the last century. It is little more than a ticket window and a poma, but prized steep and consequential lines surround the valley. A version of this story appeared in the September issue of the magazine, but in this fourth edition of the POWDER Flipbook series, we feature an extended (and original) Pondella photo gallery, as well as more storytelling from Tabke.
