Swedish freeskier Jesper Tjäder set his sights on breaking the Guinness World Record for the longest rail slide on skis, which was previously held by legendary freeskier Tom Wallisch. Now after six years and 127 attempts, Tjäder wrote freeskiing history by smashing Wallish’s record after completing a rail measuring 154,49 meters aka 506 feet and 28 inches.

What if you could link every powder turn, every rail, every cliff drop, every comp run and every kicker nailed into one ultimate run? Well, Markus Eder did just that in ‘The Ultimate Run’!
So to get ready for the backcountry this season, we took an avalanche coarse at Mt Baker Ski area to get a refresh on knowledge and learn how to use some new BCA gear. After the coarse we were trying to find a good spot to go do some filming, but it hadn’t snowed in almost two weeks, and some parts of the country were getting warm, so we hopped in the car for 10 hrs and drove to Idaho where we linked up with Keegan Hosefros and Mason Lemery. The snow wasn’t great, but the crew was all time and we made the best of bad conditions in December.
STARRING: Brandon Davis
