WATCH OUT

ICE & PALMS

Two friends, Jochen and Max, combine ski-touring with cycle-touring in this short film following their journey from Germany to Nice, France. They take advantage of the changing seasons by skiing high in the Austrian, Swiss and French Alps while enjoying the clear roads lower down, though their adventure isn't without challenges both on skis and on bikes.
