Overview

Wanting to get away from the crowds, lifts and hullabaloo of Central Europe, five freeriders from Innsbruck, Austria, travel through the Balkans to the Albanian Alps. A sparsely populated region, known as the Valbona Valley, serves as their homebase as they skin, hike, snowshoe and billy goat around the area in search of lines seldom skied.
