Ice & Palms


Skiers Jochen Mesle and Max Kroneck start their biggest and most extraordinary ski tour so far. Their mission: Bikepacking across the alps and skiing some iconic mountains along the way – no motor allowed! The two friends have traveled the world for many mountainous adventures, but while skiing in distant locations this idea grew in their minds: a ski expedition that starts right on their own doorsteps in southern Germany. Six weeks on the road, 1.800 km, 35.000 vertical meters and a dream come true.

After pedaling and skiing through Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy and France, they reached the beach in Nice in early June 2018. The 32 minute documentary about the trip premiered at St. Anton Filmfest in August 2018 and won several awards at film festivals around the world (Finalist & World Tour Selection @ Banff Mountain Film Festival, Best Mountain Sports Film @ Vancouver Mountain Film Festival, Jury Prize @ Winterfilm Festival France).

This trip was a dream come true for both of us. I always wanted to travel as light as possible and experience big mountains by fair means.Max Kroneck

We combined our main passions: Skiing, cycling and the mountains – just that. Jochen Mesle
