Ice Call – Backyards Project – Sam Favret
Try to keep up to freerider Sam Favret as he gives us a new perspective of the mythical Mer de Glace, at the heart of Mont-Blanc.
The Space Within
Imagine your mind wanders from the reality of real life and the space that surrounds you is filled with beautiful, soft, Japanese powder snow.
American skier Aaron Rice sets out to ski 2.5 million, human-powered, vertical feet in the backcountry and set a new world record.
Kilian Jornet is considered the greatest mountain runner ever. But he doesn't consider himself a runner. Join Kilian in his new backyard in Norway as he attempts to ski and run in a single day the Seven Summits of Romsdalen, a 77 kilometre route with 9000 metres of elevation gain.
Far north of the Arctic Circle, next to Sweden's highest mountain, one old man has chosen to spend his life as a caretaker of a lonely alpine hut. Retreating from obligations and everyday routines into the cold Arctic winter storms, he's set on finding peace of mind with the life he has lived and those he has chosen to leave behind.
Tsirku (Tour Edit)
Having to endure particularly adverse conditions preventing this team of skiers access onto the Tsirku Glacier at the Yukon/Alaskan border, the athletes face bigger obstacles once at the base of their mountain, Corrugated. Mammoth cornices block their intended lines and mountain guide Sam Anthmatten helps them find a way onto the snowy spine wall.
