Norwegian freeskier and film maker Nikolai Schirmer is back with his first release of his Topside series for this year and he has come out swinging with one that features some radical action in steep big mountain terrain and excellent snow in the Swiss Alps.

Nikolai and snowboarder Krister Kopala, Nikolai’s regular riding partner, are joined by skiers Ebba Forsgren and Antuu Oikkonen and this 24-minute film documents “The best snow and steepest lines we found during a two month trip the The Alps.”

Joonas Mattila’s cinematography, the POV footage and editing ensure another excellent production and show why Schirmer’s films are some of the best snow content you’ll find.

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
