Capturing the “true essence” of skiing in Uzbekistan in new edit from Whitehearts

Comments by Donny O'Neill/

Whitehearts, a community of skiers and snowboarders from Germany, headed to Uzbekistan in February 2014 to do some shooting up in the Tien Shan mountains. While the crew found some great snow, steep lines and endless vert, all accessed by a MI 8 helicopter, they also discovered the true essence of skiing, or at least Uzbekistan’s idea of it. In keeping in line with the video’s lack of narrative trajectory, a scantily clad go-go dancer from Tashkent (the nation’s capital) provided endless entertainment in the chopper between ski sessions. Watch the video and let us know what you think in the comments below. All we know is, Uzbekistan and Whitehearts are doing something right.
