Ice & Palms – The Official Trailer

Ice & Palms [Eis & Palmen] – Bikepacking across the alps and skiing iconic mountains along the way – no motor allowed!

The 32 minute documentary follows skiers Jochen Mesle and Max Kroneck on their most ambitious ski tour yet. From southern Germany all the way to the mediterranean sea.

The two friends have traveled the world for many mountainous adventures, but while skiing in distant locations this idea grew in their minds: a self powered ski expedition that starts right on their own doorsteps. Five weeks, 1.800 km, 35.000 vertical meters and a dream come true.

After pedaling and skiing through Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy and France, they reached the beach in Nice in early June 2018. The movie premiered at St. Anton Filmfest in August 2018.

SCREENINGS: The movie is currently screening at the Banff World Tour. Get tickets for the German part of the tour here. More shows and festivals:
