Symphony On Skis
Two sisters ski the route pioneered by their late father across the glaciers of New Zealand's Southern Alps in this NZ-German documentary.
"In 1985, Gottlieb Braun-Elwert set out on an incredible expedition. He traversed the major glaciers of the Southern Alps, covering 40km and 4000 vertical metres, from the heart of the South Island to the West Coast — in just 18 hours. Gottlieb dubbed the route of astonishing beauty, immense freedom, breathtaking vistas and untamed wilderness “Symphony on Skis”. Now, a small team of adventurers, including Gottlieb’s daughters Elke and director Carla, embark on the same journey, paying homage to their late father, one of NZ’s most respected mountain guides."
