Big mountain riding holds plenty of risks during the daytime, so doing it at night only elevates the inherent consequences. To some, Splitboarding in northern Norway means accepting the latter and learning how ride the mountains without sunlight. Through Darkness follows a team of five splitboarders as they push their limits in challenging backcountry terrain, navigating their way through darkness “both physically and mentally.”
