Pow & Pillows in St. Anton with Freeskier & Poor Boyz
There's a certain gravitational pull for film crews to spots they've been to before. In the quest for maximum productivity, efficiency and consistency we will return year on year to the same spots where we know the terrain, have relationships and have seen good weather before. And that makes some coverage pretty boring–same spot, new graphics is not a reason to do a story. Regardless, last week Johnny Decesare of Poorboyz and I hit St. Anton once again with Bene Mayr and Bobby Brown, as well as a cameo from Jossi Wells.
So if you want to hear more about why Saint Anton am Arlberg is on my yearly hit list, you should read our article from last year here. But to see the best shots from the shoot, you'll have to wait for the first issue of Freeskier to hit your mailbox or newsstand in August (or for Poorboyz Production's new movie to hit your local theater). Until then, you can salivate at these teaser photos and the fact that I'm claiming that we hit Austria at just the right time and that I have sunny powder jumps, gnarly jibs and fresh tricks locked away on my hard drive to prove it to you.
And I can certainly guarantee that I will be back in the Arlberg — sooner or later.
