THE LAST CONTINENT

The two freeriders and adventurers Matthias Haunholder and Matthias Mayr have been almost everywhere in search for Powder Snow. On 6 continents they have done first descents,
deep powder lines and expeditions. But there is one continent left. A continent the two never considered for skiing. AFRICA. But it would not be adventorous enough, if just "skiing Powder in Africa" would be their aim. Doing as much as one can in an ecofriendly way is part of Hauni´s and Matthias´mindset ever since. But when it comes to their adventures, they always produced a big carbon footprint. Not this time. The goal is to go electric all the way to Sahara, and back. Without focusing on going electric, to show that this is possible for daily use. Everything said about their plan - Reality is always different. Snow in the desert, floodings,....
German: Die beiden Freerider und Abenteurer Hauni und Matthias haben schon viel erlebt, wenn es um außergewöhnliche Reisen geht. Auf 6 der 7 Kontinente haben sie bereits Tiefschneeschwünge auf Bild gebannt. Nur an Afrika haben sie bisher, als Tiefschneeliebhaber verständlicherweise, noch nie einen Gedanken verschwendet. Doch die Zeiten änderen sich. Wie kann man zwar große Abenteuer erleben aber trotzdem den eigenen ökologischen Fußabdruck klein halten? Elektrisch bis in die Sahara fahren, auf der Suche nach Pulverschnee sein, mit muslimischen Profisportlerinnen umherstreifen, Das Atlas Gebirge mit Skiern überqueren und das ganze noch während eines Jahrhundertsturms der Schnee bis in die Wüste bringt. Abenteuer genug? Film ab!
