The North Face presents the Australian premiere of the film ‘The Sky Piercer’, with screenings happening in Sydney and Melbourne, which will include a Q&A with athletes Sam Smoothy and Fraser McDougall, alongside director Jase Hancox.

Anyone who has climbed in New Zealand/ Aotearoa will know what a daunting mountain Aoraki is. To plan to climb it and then ski it is taking things to another level.

The idea: 

The team hit the road with the objective to climb and ski the East Face of Aoraki Mt Cook, New Zealands highest mountain. They are being beaten down by the weather with the likelihood of meeting the objective looking less and less within the time allocated for the project. They embrace the Kiwi road trip with the hope of a weather window.
