‘With an old French camper van, a playlist filled with indy folk music, several off-piste and splitboard sets, a fully
equipped camera bag and a few laptops we travelled South. The South which is known for it’s precious beaches, but
forgotten for it’s demanding peaks…the Pyrenees.’

The team of four riders began their journey without any planning, preparation or expectations, but only three marked
places on their map: El Pas de la Casa (Andorra), Baquèira-Beret (Spain) and Pic du Midi de Bigorre (France). Without
knowing what to find, one goal was set: this journey would be an excellent ender of the season. And they would find the
very last powder fields to leave their bootprints. Unfortunately most of the areas had already closed their lifts, the roads
were already defrosting and classic spring rain made sure nobody had dry socks left. The mission seemed doomed, at
least for less motivated riders. But these mountain goats went through and that resulted in hilarious moments, relaxing
camper van vibes and one big spectacular run down on Le Petit Alaska at the Pic du Midi de Bigorre. Winter is a never
ending story.

A RIDER’S JOURNEY is a production company that captures and shares passion. It’s created by experienced riders and
film makers, passionated ourselves. Everything starts by a journey and every journey is born out of passion. It can be
the passion of riding, sliding, jumping, flying and playing with the elements. The passion of adventure, of testing your
limits and discovering new things. Or maybe it’s the passion of travelling: from the corner of your street to the middle of
nowhere. Discover your journey and enjoy the ride with us.
