Nikolai Schirmer on top of an Oslo mountain in Endless Winter II (Black Crows)

Was it a coincidence that the day after the UK declares a climate emergency, Black Crows Skis drops the second chapter of Endless Winter; a tempestuous tale of carbon-conscious eco-warrior Nikolai Schirmer’s mission to highlight the environmental impact on chasing the hardest lines in Europe.

Undoubtedly not.

Following on from Nikolai’s first chapter – Endless Winter I – sponsored by Norrøna in cooperation with Infinitum Movement and Protect Our Winters Norway, this feature film takes viewers on a journey down south from Norway to Austria with as minimal carbon footprint as possible to shred the deepest Austrian powder for a decade.

“In the big picture, they might be insignificant actions. But there’s no one that’ll do them for me” – Nikolai Schirmer
