Johan Jonsson heads to northern Turkey to the small mountain village of Olgunar. The village is hundreds of years old and now it is virtually a ghost town. With tricky snow conditions and limited time, the crew made the most of their situation. From meeting locals to earning his turns, Johan tours to the open terrain high above the village. The impending weather conditions dictated the outcome of their adventure. The mountains spoke and in doing so tilted the balance of risk versus reward in an unfavourable direction.
Johan Jonsson explores the mountain habits in Turkey in search of good coffee and fresh snow. What is finds is somewhat of a contrast to his anticipations; Turkish tea and very little snow.
