It may still be sunny outside, (mostly) but it doesn’t stop us thinking about the winter season on our doorsteps.
As per usual, there has been a swathe of ski and snowboard movie releases that have dropped over the last couple of months, all designed to show off the talents of the riders, but also to get the viewer pumped for the new winter season.
Here is our run down of the top movies you should watch for maximum stoke before hitting the slopes.
Matchstick productions — ALL IN
ALL IN – Matchstick Productions 2018 epic ski film, delivers a first of its kind experience. This concept is spearheaded by a talented group of hard-charging women who wanted to disrupt the male-dominated ski film formula. Skiing isn’t exclusionary. True fun in the mountains can be shared by everyone. This isn’t your typical “Women can shred too” film, this is a kick-ass ski film that just happens to feature as many women as men.
Matchstick Productions — HOJI
Eric Hjorleifson lets his skiing speak for itself. He doesn’t stand on the bar and shout out his accolades. He skis for brands that give him 100% creative control over the equipment that he designs and uses. He chases storms. He ditches his cell phone for weeks at a time. His exploits are rarely flaunted on social media. In spite of all of this – or maybe because of it – he is a hero to legions of skiers across the globe. This is who Eric is – this is “HOJI.”
Blank Collective — before Blank
The blank crew takes a light-hearted and retrospective look into the similarities and differences that drove each member down their own path. But like someone once said, who resembles, assembles. Their deep passion for skiing began at a young age, and that link continues to shape their lives today.
Follow Fellas — Somewhere
Tanner Hall — Here After
Coming October 2018, Tanner’s latest film “Here After” filmed in Montana, Alaska, California, and Sweden.
Level 1 Productions — Zig Zag
Following nearly two decades of ski movie pedigree, Level 1 documents a lifestyle of contradiction. Timeless ephemera. Love and money. Natural and synthetic. Powder and slush. Stagnant and innovative. Untracked and well-travelled. Consistent but not predictable. Swerving left, right and diagonal, yet never asleep at the wheel.
Teton Gravity Research — Far Out
REI presents Far Out, a ski and snowboard film that embodies the imagination as much as it does a physical space. It is the quest to seek out undiscovered realms and inspire new waves of creativity, enlightenment, and progression. It is the quest to be blown away.
Sound of Silence – Born severely deaf
A young man born severely deaf faced exclusion from society from his early days on. He was bullied by his peers, branded a fool by his teachers, and locked away in a basement at his first job at a bank—but Robin Gillon found his way through, all thanks to skiing.
