So far it has been an epic winter in the European Alps with consistent snowfalls and some of the best December powder days in memory. A case of the world’s best mountains showing their full merit.

This film was shot five weeks ago in Chamonix on a day where everything aligned for Nikolai Schirmer and his crew. Perfect snow, perfect weather, a stable snowpack and for freeriders of this calibre when it all lined up on December 6th, 2023, Chamonix was the best place on the planet.

Nikolai Schirmer is a Norwegian freeskier and filmmaker whose films are renowned for their story telling, characters and self-deprecating humour. He is also a busy man and is releasing Topside episodes monthly this northern hemisphere winter – check them out on his You Tube channel
