Tsirku is a three-part big-mountain adventure ski series from Sherpas Cinema and The North Face. It features snowboarder Ralph Backstrom and skiers Hadley Hammer and Sam Anthamatten, professional North Face athletes who set out to tackle the fabled Corrugated spine lines of the Tsirku Glacier. Located deep in the Saint Elias mountains where Alaska, British Columbia, and the Yukon converge, this is a place most skiers and snowboarders only dream of visiting. Needless to say it was no easy task.
