In the latest episode of his Topside series, Nikolai Schirmer assembled a crew of Scandinavian rippers to ski the Titlis Rundtour, an alpine ski tour in Englebert, Switzerland.

It is a challenging tour involving steep climbs with a lot of exposure, rappelling into couloirs and steep technical skiing. This episode was filmed last month, and the early season conditions make things more interesting and a test of the different skills of each skier.

Another film from Schirmer you don’t want to miss.


Not a climb for those who suffer from vertigo
