Backcountry Evening Solitary Screening
ELLIS BRIGHAM COVENT GARDEN, LONDON
8.30PM - 10PM MON 5TH DEC 2016
Born and raised in the Swiss Alps Piers Solomon grew up racing competitively. As his enthusiasm for racing waned, Piers felt drawn to the powder and freedom of free skiing. After just one season on his twin tips he knew he'd found his calling. He's been obsessed with powder skiing since, whether he's skiing in front of a camera lens, or just cruising the mountain with his buddies.
Now Piers describes himself as a big-mountain skier who spends his winters chasing the best conditions, having the best possible time and meeting new people from all over.
