VideoPick “When the Mountains were Wild.”

A road trip through former Yugoslavia, scars of war still visible, the ruins of the Sarajevo wintergames, countless passport checkpoints to the Albanian Alps. Digging out of snow covered huts, waiting out a 6 day snowstorm, food rationing, skinning up amazing faces, powder runs through deserted mountains where nobody comes, baby goats, couloirs, spines and tree runs…all ingredients of a very entertaining ski/snowboard roadtrip movie. Wild undiscovered mountains: these guys really had to work for it!

Since I can remember I have been very active in many different sports: started with baseball, tennis and riding later hockey, football, running and aikido. In addition, since twelve years old I've been into actionports: at first windsurfing, later climbing, inline skating, snowboarding, mountain biking. With the first action cams coming onto the market I've been making action sports videos. Furthermore, I've worked in the sports industry since 1990, sports marketing, media and live TV and until the end of 2016 at the Dutch Olympic Committee. Besides being partner in GearLimits I work as a digital freelancer. Based in the Netherlands, Married with Children (11 and 13 years old)
