In a new Black Crows-produced mini doc, Christina Lustenberger and Andrew McNab do what they always do…get super gnarly and ski something no one else has.

You could say we’re big fans of these two Kootenay born and bred big mountain skiers. Every weekend it seems, the two are out and about in their Revelstoke backyard doing something impossibly steep, exposed and altogether sphincter tightening. We’d documented the exploits of both many times over the years, and are proud to share “Chasing Niflheim,” the latest short film from French ski maker blackcrows.

The film documents the remarkable first descent of the southwest couloir on Mount Niflheim, the third-highest peak in the Gold Range. After eyeing the dramatic and savage couloir for a number of years, Andrew McNab and his go anywhere gnar buddy Christina Lustenberger, or “Lusti” as she’s famoulsy known, venture into the rugged terrain of the Monashee massif, where they tag and bag a first descent from just below the peak’s 2800-meter summit.
