IN THE LONG RUN
by a RIDER’s JOURNEY
in collaboration with the MONGOLIAN PROFESSIONAL SNOWBOARD FEDERATION and with Stephan Verheij, Rens de Wild, Seb Jam, Mirte van Dijk, Battulga Gantulga & Munkhsaikhan Gundsambuu
“Four European snowboarders traveled to the highest peaks of untouched Mongolia to meet with like-minded adventurers. Four Mongolian snowboarders did the same. A mix of culture, perspective and knowledge came together during this splitboard expedition in the Altai, the first one in history.
It takes four days of travel to reach the untouched mountains of the Mongolian Altai. Before setting one step on the glacier that leads towards the lines that have never seen a snowboard before, you need four different flights, a Russian Furgon van for a seven hour drive and a bunch of camels carrying your basecamp while hiking up a five hour long trail. At least, that’s the scenario in the long run, because time has a different meaning on this side of the world.”
