Get eclipsed by this stunning skier short.

Published: 27 January 2016

Norway is a favoured destination among keen skiers, and perhaps the most exotic location of all is Svalbard – the snow-covered archipelago in the Arctic Ocean that is characterized by its many mountains and glaciers.

That’s why a team of Salomon skiers and filmmakers went there with photographer Reuben Krabbe in 2015. Krabbe’s vision was to capture the skiers against the magnificent backdrop of the total solar eclipse.

900,000 views

The documentary they made together was published before Christmas 2015 and now has more than 900,000 views on Youtube. That’s not that strange, considering it’s a funny, exciting and beautifully shot mini-documentary.

The film from Salomon Freeski TV clearly shows Svalbard’s beauty, but also the many challenges visitors and residents face, such as quite extreme weather … and the polar bears.

Here’s a few pictures courtesy of Reuben Krabbe’s Instagram account, from his trip to Svalbard.

Salomon’s trip to Svalbard was organized by local adventure company The Empire.
