‘Mission Steeps’ now available for free online
Free-launch the second film in the “Mission” series – ‘Mission Steeps’.
A project that has many happy memories, sharing adventures with Sam Anthamatten and Andreas Fransson, who we greatly miss. We intended in this mission to confront the visions of free riding and traditional ski mountaineering, trying to gather the best of both worlds in our vision and riding.
Xavier and Sam are known for bringing speed and fluidity into the big mountain environment. Following ‘Mission Antarctic’, ‘Mission Steeps’ is the second chapter of the Mission Series. Follow some of the most progressive riders on their way to redefine steeps riding on breath-taking terrain and challenging conditions. ‘Mission Steeps’ is not only a quest to the most radical terrain but also a journey and documentary on how to get there and a singular approach to the mountain. As relevant today as when it was released in 2014.
Starring: Xavier De Le Rue, Samuel Anthamatten and Andreas Fransson as guest.
