Zabardast: Biacherahi and the incredible freeride skiing in the heart of the Karakorum

di

The film Zabardast directed by Jérôme Tanon that documents a trip into the heart of the Karakorum to explore the potential for freeride skiing in Pakistan. The highlight was the ski descent of 5880m high Biacherahi. With Thomas Delfino, Léo Taillefer, Zak Mills, Yannick Graziani and Hélias Millerioux.

The award-winning freeride film Zabardast is now online, a sort of "travel diary" featuring Thomas Delfino, Léo Taillefer, Zak Mills, Yannick Graziani, Hélias Millerioux and Jérôme Tanon who in spring 2018 ventured deep into Pakistan’s Karakorum. The aim of the expedition was to carry out some first ski descents down some of the most beautiful mountains in the world, and the group of freeride skiers and mountaineers spent five weeks in complete autonomy above the Panmah glacier, around the Skamla pass and the glaciers Sim Gang, Snow Lake and Biafo. The absolute highlight was certainly the first ski descent of 5880m high Biacherahi, a mountain so beautiful that it takes your breath away.
