Mongolia here we come…

Mongolia… It’s not a country where you first think about mountains, glaciers and the option of skiing… It was always a dream to go there, exploring this country… Actually not on skis but half a year ago I found an article about the Tavan Bogd Range and the idea came up “Why not taking the skis?”…

These are the mountains...
These are the mountains…

So here we go… Talked to some friends and told them my idea… First it was actually planned to get together a female expedition but as things never come like they are planned, we got together the coolest team ever:

Steph Skrobar, Fischer teammate, ski-mountaineering guide, founder of Die Bergstation, Michi Mayrhofer, one of my best skibuddies, ski-mountaineering guide, Liz Kristoferitsch, also ski- and snowboard-mountaineering guide and myself, the addicted mountain girl who loves being out there…
Four Austrian Freeskiing athletes, accompanied by french cameraman Thomas Andrillon and our photographer Tobias Zlu Haller for the trip…

Our aim is to climb and ski some remote peaks in the Altai Tavan Bogd mountains, peaks that are more than 4000 meters high, not many ski-expeditions have been there yet, so we might even ski some first descents… Definetely we’ll be the ones with the widest skis there… I’m taking my Fischer 106 Watea Babe 😉

Every move, all the excitement, the beauty of nature, the life of the nomads and the fascinating culture will
be captured on film by Tom and pictured by Zlu, so we’ll bring back an adventurous story of our experiences there…

Looking forward to!

We’ll be flying out tomorrow from Munich and we’ll be back 27th of May…

Time for adventure now…
