Welcome to the final round of our Snowmads approved film recommendations
Before you read on: Have you already seen our first two Snowmads watch lists? Find them here Part 1 & Part 2
As the first two versions of our Snowmads recommended films have all been connected to the Snowmads universe in some way, we’re now offering you a fine selection of films we just really like and think they are highly recommendable. An exception here is TWENTY with our friend Léo Slemett. We really hope you liked our watchlists and enjoyed a couple of hours skiing fine lines and good times… at least mentally and on your screen.
Here’s our final Snowmads approved selection for you:
HAMKUMMEN – HOMECOMING
Should we travel more or think more about homecoming? This question photographer and filmmaker Lukas Dürnegger asks himself in this movie.
Zabardast means „fantastic“ in the Hindi language – Zabardast is a definitely a fantastic movie, a movie about an expedition to the great Himalayas of Pakistan, a movie that really impressed us.
Redefining steep skiing with Jeremy Heitz and Sam Anthamatten – meanwhile this movie of Jeremy and Sam skiing ticking off 15 4000m peaks and their steep faces is almost a classic. By the way: Part two of La Liste is about to drop soon, stay tuned.
TWENTY – An accidental history of free riding by Guido Perrini
TWENTY is the culmination of twenty years of big mountain filming, and raises the question of ‘is it worth it?’ Twenty is an emotional story of the development of freeriding, the passion for being out in the mountains and why the characters return to it again and again, even after tragedy strikes.
Here you go – lean back, grab a cold one and enjoy!
A new week of staying at home, doing home workouts, dreaming of spring skiing and of course hiding from that world wide virus pandemic is coming up. Watching a good movie is always a good way to recover from post Easter workouts or when isolation boredom kicks in. Watching a good ski movie is the best way to dream of big missions and make new plans for when that bloody virus is gone!
Here’s our Snowmads approved selection for you:
Follow a Brazilian couple on their skiing vacation in Austria. A nice mix of comedy and skiing, starring Snowmads Raphi Webhofer and produced by our friends of Whiteroom Production.
TIEN SHAN – A KYRGYZ SKI ADVENTURE
The movie shows the story of four friends, including Fabian Lentsch, traveling to the former soviet republic of Kyrgyzstan in 2012. Super confident they made their way into the Tien Shan mountain range, where they were confronted with snow conditions they have never seen before.
ALTAI – AN UNEXPECTED FORTUNE
Another Whiteroom production. In Spring 2014 the Austrian and German ski alpinists David Pitschmann, Fabian Lentsch, Joi Hoffmann, Michael Trojer and Jakob Schweighofer headed to the remote Russian Altai Mountains in hope to discover a skier’s paradise.
Follow the journey of our Spanish friend and Snowmads Aymar Navarro, who has also been part of YA MAS, and Txema Trull on their annual trip to South America’s austral winter an the incredible Andes mountain range. An epic adventure full of gnarly lines and sharing experiences with local skiers from Chile and Argentina as well as internationally known riders like Leo Slemett and Marion Haerty.
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. Leo Slemett has also been part of the very first NINE&ONE / Snowmads production A JOURNEY TOWARDS EASTERN SUNS.

In 2016 Fabian Lentsch and the Snowmads crew get lost in nipple-deep turkish powder
After a long and unsuccessful search for new tracks, the urgent need for powder among the Snowmads crew gets almost unbearable, but when they arrive in Yaylalar they are rewarded for their relentless efforts. This little remote and isolated mountain village, which often is cut off from the rest of the world, is surrounded by the impressive Kaçkar Mountain Range and offers countless opportunities. Neil William, Dane Tudor and Markus Ascher are keeping Fabi company and together they enjoy the sheer endless amount of powder. Unfortunately the snow conditions appear to be very sketchy and the boys have to be careful in the choice of their lines. After they narrowly escape an avalanche they decide to stay below the tree line, which still gives them numerous options. It seems like Turkey is the place to be, when the Alps lack snow.
Fresh Tracks in Iran
Good times and fresh snow in the Iranian mountains
What happens when you take an old fire truck and refurbish it into the ultimate ski-mobile, pack it full with professional skier Fabian Lentsch and his crew of Snowmads , and hit the road on a massive road trip in search of powder? The absolute journey of a lifetime! In this episode the boys head to Iran and meet up with some of the locals to claim some fresh tracks and good times on the mountain.
Big Mountain Dream Lines
Perfect days in Georgia
After a long and arduous journey searching for snow, the boys finally hit the jackpot in Mestia, Georgia. They were greeted by a heli, and immediately set out for the steepest and deepest lines they could find for an all-time big mountain session.
