‘Altai – An Unexpected Fortune’ – In Spring 2014 the Austrian and German ski alpinists David Pitschmann, Fabian Lentsch, Joi Hoffmann, Michael Trojer and Jakob Schweighofer headed to the remote Russian Altai Mountains in hope to discover a skier’s paradise. After a long travel they found themselves again in a tiny woodshed at the sidelines of a Russian farmers’ village called Kurai, having no idea what is going to happen next. When the first sun rays squinted into their room, they opened the curtains and saw the whole Altai Massiv stuck out of the Sibirian steppe – unspoiled and incredibly beautiful. Will there be good skiing out there? What they finally found deep in the heart of these soaring mountains excelled their wildest imaginations – a truly unexpected fortune!
