To design ski slope, to create them with your hands and to pat them every night in order to have them perfect in the morning: this is the job of a snow groomer driver. Oscar spent his whole life combing the mountains: his biggest reward is to be the first to get on the just made slope.
Shot in Cortina D'Ampezzo, on the Dolomites, MOUNTAINEERS is the first episode of a portraits series.
It's about unusual and silent figures who usually are hidden in the back, but who represent the site soul: the mountain in its everyday robe. A robe that falls on the mountain shape like snow on rocks.
