Episode 03: Winter Camping
Get a glimpse of what the crew learned sleeping in tents in the mountains during winter. We’ll show some of the basics you should know, ranging from the most important items to bring to some tips on how to set up your camp the right way.

Episode 04: Glacier Safety
While glaciers are beautiful, they also pose a great risk for Freeriders and Mountaineers. If traversing glaciers, it’s mandatory to be able to perform some complex crevasse rescuing and safety techniques. The good thing is: you can practise everything off the glaciers first, which is less demanding! Watch the Mountain Tribe learning new skills in crevasse rescue and alpine ropework, on and off the mountain, from how to carry the rope correctly to complex rescue scenarios.
