The North Face presents: Western Faces

Take a journey into the Australian backcountry and get a glimpse of the big mountain terrain in our backyard.

Australian mountaineer Tim Macartney-Snape, freeskier Anna Segal and Freeride World Tour rookie Michaela Davis-Meehan, are set to explore some of the steepest faces in their backyard. With New Zealand freeskiers Fraser McDougall and Hank Bilous along for the ride, they’re slogging deep into the backcountry to find freeride terrain that will have their Kiwi-counterparts do a double-take. A film by Lachlan Humphreys, Clean Line Productions and Rob Norman, Knack Studios.
