Few people are aware that backcountry Australia hides some big-mountain slopes, even less are willing to journey there for it. Yet the western slopes of the Snowy Mountains has some grand terrain for backcountry skiing and boarding. Season 2014 delivers conditions of a decade for one splitboarder. We are delighted to be showing this 8 minute film by Nicholas Rivers during the backcountry film festival this year.
