The prevailing climate threat make a bunch of Swedish extreme skiers/snowboarders skip airplanes to take on a journey with trains and boats instead, from Stockholm all the way to Japan in search of deep powder and the adventure of a lifetime. Along the world longest train ride they make various stops in Siberia’s remote forests, to explore unridden mountains and getting to know the special Russian culture from the inside. When arriving to Japan 12 000 km later, the crew keep roadtripping with motor homes in a country showing to be different from Russia in all possible ways. A great amount of humor, hectic meetings and world class riding sums up this epic journey.
