Paul Hodgson Music Judge
A quirky adventure-packed ski film in far reaching destinations.
The prevailing climate threat has made a bunch of Swedish extreme skiers and snowboarders travel with trains and ferries from Stockholm all the way to Japan, in search of deep powder and the adventure of a lifetime. Along the world longest train ride, they make various stops in Siberia's remote forests, exploring untouched mountains and experiencing the special Russian culture from the interior. When arriving in Japan 12 000 km later, the crew continue to road trip in RV’s through the land of the rising sun. A great amount of humor, hectic meetings and world-class riding sums up this epic journey.
