Before achieving global success as a professional snowboarder, Géraldine Fasnacht’s first love was flying. Now, as a qualified ultralight plane pilot, she combines her passions to open up the high mountains. Landing ultralight planes on alpine glaciers is nothing new – pioneering aviator Hermann Geiger opened the highest landing spot in Switzerland, 4,370 meters up on the Monte Rosa glacier, in 1921. But using planes to reach previously inaccessible big lines? That’s unprecedented. In ‘LINE & AIR’, Marion Haerty and Christina Lusti take to the skies with Géraldine to honour those early pioneers of Alpine aviation and push the limits of what’s possible on the snow below.
