Mikkel Bang in “Fimbulvetr: A Winter Backyard Story”

From time to time, even full-send shredders such as Mikkel Bang need some easy cruising. Before heading off for another season of filming big features in the backcountry, Mikkel gets back to the basics as he explores the mountains in his home country of Norway. As seen here, a bit of bindingless powder surfing can be better for the soul than a bowl of chicken noodle.

A word from Director Preben Winther Hansen about the short film: 

Keep it simple. Enjoy your local winter backyard. Mikkel Bang goes back to basic. While Mikkel is waiting to ride big mountains and powder pillows in remote destinations, he explores his local winter playground in Hemsedal, Norway. A simple approach to the outdoors brings out the best in all of us.“My favorite thing about winter is that you can go outside and play. Never grow up. Just go outside and be outdoors.”
