Late season, Sam Anthamatten, Markus Eder and Leo Slemett made their way to Svaneti, Georgia in the hopes of climbing Ushba and making a first descent on skis. This mystical 4710-metre mountain in the Caucasus Mountains near the Georgian-Russian border is very remote and must be accessed by foot. Before the ascent, the crew got to warm up the legs and experience some of the best skiing they've ever had in a wild heli-ski session in epic conditions.
