Skiing in the footsteps of the Dyatlov group - watch a preview of our upcoming documentary which came to form the basis of a new theory.

The documentary is currently in the making by the artist Fabrizio Luciani and Richard Holmgren, archaeologist and expedition member. 

Our 2019 Expedition to the Dyatlov pass had two main objectives. Firstly, we wanted to come as close as possible to the historical event by experiencing the Northern Urals during the exact same days/month of the year as the Dyatlov group – this on skis with a tent provided with a stove. 

Before getting to the position on the slope of Kholat Syakhl (Dead Mountain), likewise to the group in 1959, we sought to ski through the Auspiya valley in pristine snow with heavy equipment and to set up camps in the estimated positions of 1959. In experiencing the same preconditions and topography, we discovered unknown details along the trail that we think are crucial for the understanding of an enigmatic mystery and the unfolding events of February 1st, 1959.

Secondly - the reason we went to the region in early 2019 and the transition between January and February, was a homage to the events and the 60 year anniversary of the groups passing. The expeditions core members were Richard Holmgren and Andreas Liljegren from Linköping in Sweden and Ekaterina Zimina and Artem Domogirov from Yekaterinburg, Russia. 

We hope you will find the film preview interesting!
