Our Judges say:

After this winter I'm not sure you going to want to see more snowy shots but here they are from the winter before and Sheffields own house

Ed Birch Director of Salt-Street productions

The wonderfully warm Scottish voiceover of this film whisks you away on a winter climbing adventure to Scotland. A feel-good cinematic celebration of friendships formed on expeditions. While Rab's American athletes are awe-inspiring, the real star of the film is without a doubt mountaineering legend Myrtle Simpson.

Ruth Farrar

Classy Scottish climbing documentary. Includes she very nice Bothy action.

Paul Hodgson Music Judge

From the climbers and skiers who live for Scottish winter to the musicians and craftspeople who make their living in the highlands, so much of our inspiration still comes from the mountains of Scotland. 

 With the Rab family now extending far beyond these isles, in January 2017 we invited athletes and staff from our US Team to come and experience Scottish winter with us. 

This film, produced by Coldhouse Collective, catalogues their journey through the country as they discover that the weather is just as fickle, the people just as welcoming and the climbing just as demanding as they'd always heard.
