From beginner skier to backcountry ski tourer in just three days….
Atomic supported an experiment to see if Blair Aitken (Founder of British Backcountry) could take four hillwalkers who had never tried snowsports before and teach them to ski well enough in two lessons that they could complete an easy ski tour in Scotland on the third day.
80 people applied to be part of the Zero to Hero backcountry ski project and four were chosen to take part.
Hamish Frost‘s film documents the three days and explains more about Blair’s motivations for attempting this.
