From the visionary that brought us The Eternal Beauty of Snowboarding, comes a similarly mind-bending film – an incredible freeride expedition into the unlikely peaks of Pakistan and the imposing Karakoram range. 

The feature film directed by Jérôme Tanon is intimate and exhilarating at the same time. The crew, “search for one of the most beautiful mountains to ski on the planet, standing at 5880m.”


“An adventure so remote, so high, so committed that no mistakes were allowed. During five weeks, the crew pushed deeper and deeper inside Pakistan, with a 150 km loop in complete autonomy, pulling sleds filled with food, tents and solar panels across gigantic glaciers. As far from home as one can get. A meeting point of Freeriding and Mountaineering. A true adventure.”
