Description

Adventure and BASE jumping athlete Tim Howell has traveled all over the world doing a mixture of extreme sports. Here he has selected his favourite ski tours and freeride routes. From France to the Isle of Skye, these routes can be found in popular high-alpine destinations like Chamonix, to completely unheard of routes in the Scotland highlands.

Each featured line is very different from the next, but all involve a certain degree of expertise and the right equipment to complete safely. What they all have in common, however, is stunning mountainous terrain and exciting descents.

Tim Howell is a professional BASE jumper sponsored by J├Âttnar and has combined many of these routes with a ski-BASE jump from the top, as you will see in the photos.
