Birkbeinerne or Game of Thrones on teles
Date Posted: 12.06hrs on Fri 12 Feb 16
Not Scotland, but I wish it was.

Just back from a business trip to Norway where I squeezed in a cheeky evening telemarking at Oslo Vinterpark. But much more interesting is the premier of a ski film here today. It retells the medevial epic journey on skis to rescue a young king - The Birkbeinerne. They've got some of Norways top free riders on tells in reindeer skins and it looks like Game of Thrones on skis. The production company behind the skiing scenes is the rather good Field Productions. Famous for the Supervention films. Anyhow, they have released a making-of 8 minute video that is pretty good too. Even shows how they made medieval powered planks with steel edges and telemark bindings. I think there may be an English release as The Last King.
Enjoy the turns
