Inspired by a photograph, Samuel Anthamatten, Markus Eder, & Leo Slemett head to Svaneti, Georgia to attempt the first ski descent on the north face of Ushba in the Caucasus Mountains. Before they make their attempt, they jump in a heli and ski some wild lines in Georgia’s big mountain terrain. If this doesn’t make you want to ski in Georgia, nothing will.

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.
