The austrian Freeride skiers and adventurers Matthias Haunholder and Matthias Mayr, both with several first descents all around the globe under their belt, now embark on a mission to ski some of the steepest walls in their home mountains, the alps. Years before both were even born, those walls were ridden by dauntless young mountaineers. Now, more than 30 years later, Hauni and Matthias meet up with their predecessors and compare conditions now and then and try to ski with the gear of the past as well as with their actual Hi Tec gear. Due to global warming, conditions changed a lot the past years and to ski this walls became even more dangerous. The North Face of Zillertals highest Summit, the „Hochfeiler“ and the most famous ice climbing route in Austria, the „Pallavicini Couloir“ located at Austria ́s highest mountain, „Großglockner“ are the main objectives.
