USHBA, from The North Face
It’s definitely ski season because all the companies are dropping their new films and segments. I recently discovered this 12 minute film from The North Face, called USHBA. If you love big mountain skiing, a true adventure, and good friends doing things together in the mountains then this is the film for you, and one of the best we’ve seen yet this season.
From the original description on the video:
Late season 2017. Samuel Anthamatten, Markus Eder, & Leo Slemett head to Svaneti Georgia to hopefully climb Ushba and make a first descent on skis. This mystical 4710m mountain in the Caucasus Mountains is very remote and must be accessed on foot. Before the ascent the crew gets to warm up the legs and experience some of the best skiing they have ever had in a wild heli-ski session in epic conditions.
