[Movie] WHEN THE MOUNTAINS WERE WILD - A freeride journey to the Albanian Alps

A freeride journey to the Albanian Alps from Whiteroom Productions
By

Mitch Tölderer and Whiteroom Productions present `When the mountains were wild´
Winner of the Jones Adventure Grand 2015 & Winner of Mountainfilm Graz Kamera Alpin in Gold for best Austrian movie.

On the search for mountain wilderness in Europe a crew of five snowboarders/skiers/filmmakers drove down from Austria through several Balkan countries and witnessed the debris of the Yugoslavian war for the first time. Their destination was the incredibly beautiful and wild Valbona Valley where time had seemed to stand still for a long time. After studying vague maps, checking weather conditions they found themselves on a 25km hike to a promising looking zone in the heart of these mountains and came to a stop in a little abandoned shepherd hut. Six days of heavy snowstorm later the crew woke up in Freeride heaven and enjoyed a well-earned magic day in the snow. Watch the movie and see what more craziness our team faced on this wonderful journey.

Freeriding off the beaten tracks!
