Storm Troopers: a no-fly zone expedition in Alaska, by Almo film

Faimed for its heliskiing history, Haines, a small town in Alaska, is a winter wonderland with big mountains. In the spring, riders gather in this deep, steep, spine-covered snow heaven to shred the most famous and most desired lines in the world. Over the last few years however, this majestic area lost its accessibility.

The “Four Winds Mountains” were established as a no-fly zone and forbidden drop zone. Therefore, no helicopter access to one the of the best runs in the area was possible: Storm Troopers is located on the north-east face. In a few simple words: a mythical face named after the 50% plus gradient towering snow-capped peaks forming its landscape.

Following the path of the greatest freeriders and the extreme desire to bring this summit back to life, Léo Taillefer and Thomas Delfino set out on a journey to the top by walk, a first time in its history!

On this arctic lands where cimate change is real, the challenge takes on its full meaning: behave with humility to protect and enjoy the magic of these lands.
