Watch Ski Expedition Film Zabardast Trailer in Karakoram

In the spring of 2018, Thomas Delfino, Léo Taillefer, Zak Mills, Yannick Graziani, Hélias Millerioux and Jérôme Tanon went on an expedition into Pakistan’s Karakoram.

Their goal was to open new freeride lines on big mountains. They spent five weeks on a number of glaciers, including Panmah, Sim Gang and Biafo.

From the press release: The intimate travel diary of an incredible freeride expedition into the heart of the Karakoram range. The search for one of the most beautiful mountains to ski on the planet, standing at 5,880 metres.

An adventure so remote, so high, so committed that no mistakes were allowed.

During five weeks, the crew got deeper and deeper inside Pakistan, with a 150 km loop in complete autonomy, pulling sleds filled with food, tents and solar panels across gigantic glaciers. As far from home as one can get.

A meeting point of freeriding and mountaineering. A true adventure.
