The Ultimate Sport! Ski Mountaineering Meets Bikepacking Video

‘Our mission: Bikepacking across the Alps and skiing some beautiful mountains along the way — no motor allowed.’

“Ice & Palms” is a beautiful look at a radically unique adventure. Two skiers, Jochen Mesle and Max Kroneck, bikepacked from southern Germany to Nice, France, for 6 weeks.

The duo covered 1,119 miles and roughly 115,000 vertical feet while carrying 110 pounds on their bikes. And the whole adventure was entirely self-powered!
