If you’ve got yourself a copy of this month’s Whitelines you’ve probably already had to pick your jaw up off the floor after seeing the insane shots of Xavier de le Rue riding some of the craziest lines ever in Svalbard, one of the most hostile places on earth.

Now Swatch and The North Face have released a trailer for the third in Mr XDLR’s Missions series: Degrees North, chronicling his mad adventures with Ralph Backstrom and mountaineer/skier Samuel Anthamatten.
