The austrian Freeride skiers and adventurers Matthias Haunholder and Matthias Mayr, both with several first descents all around the globe under their belt, now embark on a mission to ski some of the steepest walls in their home mountains, the alps. Years before both were even born, those walls were ridden by dauntless young mountaineers.Now, more than 30 years later, Hauni and Matthias meet up with their predecessors and compare conditions now and then and try to ski with the gear of the past as well as with their actual Hi Tec gear. Due to global warming, conditions changed a lot the past years and to ski this walls became even more dangerous.The North Face of Zillertals highest Summit, the „Hochfeiler“ and the most famous ice climbing route in Austria, the „Pallavicini Couloir“ located at Austria ́s highest mountain, „Großglockner“ are the main objectives.

“THE WHITE MAZE” Official Trailer

A whole year of planning, scouting and guesswork Freeskiers and adventurers Matthias „Hauni“ Haunholder and Matthias Mayr invested into their personal mission impossible. To reach the Chersky Mountain Range and ski the highest Peak of Eastern Siberia “Gora Pobeda”.
When Hauni and Matthias for the first time saw the Chersky Range from high above, when flying back home from Kamchatka it seemed to them like a huge White Maze. Impossible to find a way through this massive area of mountains.

„Gora Pobeda“ is known as a very difficult to ascend mountain, not mainly because it ́s a steep, rocky and icy peak but more because it is so far out of reach. The next village with road access “UST NERA” is more than 350km away. The next helicopter and hospital is 1300km away in Yakutsk. Beside that it is one of the coldest regions in the world. Usually the temperature drops down below minus 60 degrees Celsius during the long arctic winter. Because of extreme continental climate short hot summers follow immediately the long winter cold. Due to that the time window for to ascend and descend the mountain is very small. Since nobody ever did a project like that, it is not clear which time of the year it would be possible at all. Without Helicopter support it seems impossible to reach the mountain range or even the highest peak with all the equipment the small team consisting of five guys carries with them for filming. Only having the filmers Johannes and Moritz and the photographer Jonas with them, it seems like a completely undoable project.
A Family of Nomads living aside the mountain range is their only hope. They might be able to help them come closer to the mountains…
