“It’s about preparation. It’s about being super-efficient. It’s about the perfect state of flow so everything is so well prepared and your physical and mental training all come together and you go fast.” Benedikt Böhm

Check out this award-winning look into the world of elite long distance ski touring. There’s all types of ways to have fun in the mountains but for Benedikt Böhm is all about preparation, grit and speed. This is the story of the extreme ski mountaineer’s 2019 “Speed Project” which was epic 36 hell ride covering 130 miles Germany to Italy with more vertical feet gained than the elevation of Everest:

“For the route from Ruhpolding, Germany to Kasern, Italy , 210 kilometers and more than 10000 meters of vert, recreational athletes need approximately five to seven days. DYNAFIT athlete and General Manager Benedikt Böhm’ is aiming for the magic time limit of 36 hours, non-stop. The risk of complete exhaustion is very big during this project. In 2006, Beni did the same route on touring skis together with five colleagues. A project known as “Hannibal” the six athletes broke the record back then and completed the route in three days.”
