Darren Berrecloth:2000 Vertical Feet in the Gobi Desert

Darren Berrecloth shreds the big mountain lines during a recent trip to China and the Gobi Desert to film segments of Freeride Entertainment’s upcoming film “Where the Trail Ends.”

Like the Claw says: “It’s a bit like back country skiing, you walk half a day to get just 20 turns in, but those 20 turns are some of the best turns you’ve ever had in your entire life”

Bit of Wiki Gobi Geography for you below.

The Gobi measures over 1,610 km (1,000 mi) from southwest to northeast and 800 km (497 mi) from north to south. The desert is widest in the west, along the line joining the Lake Bosten and the Lop Nor (87°-89° east). It occupies an arc of land 1,295,000 km2 (500,002 sq mi)[1] in area, making it fifth largest in the world and Asia’s largest. Much of the Gobi is not sandy but is covered with bare rock.

We’ve mentioned this before, but we have a machine that tracks down every Dirt reader in the world and shows where they are. The machine has pin pointed 4 Dirt viewers in Mongolia. If you are one of those four then get in touch, we’d love to hear from you!
