Freeriders board a Zeppelin to fly from Friedrichshafen, Germany to the Eastern Alps in Austria to abseil, ski and snowboard on pristine alpine slopes.

It all started with an idea. In the middle of February three Tyrolean Freeriders, Stefan Ager, Andreas Gumpenberger and Fabian Lentsch step into the cabin of a giant 75-meters aircraft at the Zeppelin hangar in Friedrichshafen, Germany to take off direction Brandnertal, Vorarlberg, Austria. They arrive above Kleiner Valkastiel (2.233 m), open the hatch and throw a 50-meter rope into the deep. Locked in, they rope down and float in the air to experience an almost surreal, breathtaking unseen scenery.
