Tsirku Ep. 2: The Drop by The North Face

Tsirku Ep. 2: The Drop by The North Face

In late March of 2016, the North Face team featuring splitboarder and former Freeride World Tour champion Ralph Backstrom arrived at a base camp in Haines Pass, a region straddling the borders of the Yukon, British Columbia and Alaska.

Faced with a sixty-kilometer snowmobile route across a massive glacier marked by crevasses, seracs, severe wind, and avalanche terrain, the journey soon became as relevant to the story as the destination. Due to the constantly changing weather and snow conditions, the team took over a week to develop the route and drop fuel and gear caches before completing the full day mission from Haines Pass to Corrugated basecamp.
