At the heart of Chasing Niflheim lies the remarkable first descent of the southwest couloir on Mount Niflheim, the third-highest peak in the Gold Range.

This challenging and picturesque line provides the perfect backdrop for their vertical adventure.

Commenting on her experience, Lusti said: “The way you move through the mountains is an expression of who you are and how you feel in that moment. Discovering your authentic imagination is the biggest gift in exploratory skiing and mastery in the mountains.”

Producer Flo Bastien expressed his admiration for Lusti’s prowess, stating, “Christina is undoubtedly one of the best big mountain skiers out there. These last few years, she has incorporated mountaineering and climbing skills into her arsenal, opening up numerous opportunities for exploring new slopes.”

Lusti and McNab’s daring expedition was made possible by blackcrows’ innovative Draco Freebird skis, designed to blend freeride performance with backcountry autonomy. Reflecting on the collaboration, Bastien said: “Having collaborated with Christina for a while, I knew she’d have something in mind to put our new Draco Freebird to the test. This ski has been designed to bring freeride performance and backcountry autonomy together, which is exactly what Lusti’s Niflheim project was about.”

Chasing Niflheim is not just a ski film; it’s a testament to the spirit of freeride skiing, exploration and adventure that drives athletes like Christina Lusti and Andrew McNab to push the boundaries of what’s possible in the mountains.
