Two athletes. One mission.
Matthias "Hauni" Haunholder.
Matthias “Hauni” Haunholder is a freeride pro through and through. On his way to the top, he has racked up countless victories. He always follows the call of adventure: no mountain top is too high, no powder too deep and no region too remote. Since 2008, his freeride experiences may be enjoyed by the public on the big screen. In order to secure spectacular images, he is always in pursuit of remote and fascinating mountain tops.
As a freerider, Matthias Mayr always looks for a new challenge. His specialty: mountains that have never before been conquered by anyone. During his most recent adventures, he visited a remote island at the base of the Russian peninsula Kamtschatka as well as an unexplored region of Siberia. You can witness these extreme expeditions up close in the movies “Onekotan – The Lost Island” and “The White Maze”.
The goal: Antarctica’s best freeride descents.
500 kilometers by foot and kite from Union Glacier Camp to the Ellsworth Mountains and back
Mountain tops higher than 4,000 meters that need to be conquered on the quest for the best freeride descent.
6 weeks at temperatures of between
-15 and -50°C.
Possibility of snow storms with up to
300 km/h wind velocity.
3 men, alone in the endless vastness: Matthias Mayr, Matthias "Hauni" Haunholder and cinematographer Johannes Aitzetmüller.
