Legs of Steel presents “Hurt So Good.”

From LegsOfSteelSkiing on YouTube:

“Skiing is a roller coaster of emotions. Nothing is comparable to the dream like feeling of being in the mountains, and nothing charges your soul like the buzz that comes with stomping a new trick or blazing your own line through deep snow. With such highs, come inescapable lows—frustration, disappointment and worst of all, the injuries that keep you from the thing you love most. Through all this pain, however, you’ll always find yourself coming back for more… simply because it Hurt so Good.”

PVS Company presents “Pour Vous Servir.”

 

From PVS Company on Vimeo:

Pour Vous Servir [Translation: At Your Service] takes you to the heart of the action, and most of all makes you feel how riders and cameramen share the same emotions. Like a collection of short stories, the movie tells how they live together and share the joys and the hassles of the everyday, the trips, the exhaustion, the laughter… And how one has to be able to see with the eyes of the other, to the point he becomes him, to catch this magic moment when the light shines. And thus give us, through the images, the sensation of being the one flying over the mountain…”

Red Bull Media House and Poor Boyz Productions present “WE: A Collection of Individuals.”

From redbull on YouTube:

“Red Bull Media House, in association with Poor Boyz Productions, is proud to release the official trailer for WE: A Collection of Individuals. WE is a compelling story surrounding the life and times of the modern day skier. It has long been thought that skiing was an individual sport, however the story of WE proves that this idea is nothing more than a fallacy. Skiing is an art, a collaborative effort that takes the energy of many. Even though skiing encompasses many different venues and styles, the core remains within the crew of individuals that help scout, build, transport, struggle and keep each other safe. WE follows a season as a group of the most influential skiers travel the world in search of epic powder lines, tackling the streets, and creative park features. Together this collection of individuals become WE.”

From Toy Soldier Productions on Vimeo:

“Toy Soldier Productions spent the last few years getting to know an exciting array of skiers – those who are out there for the fun of it, the thrill of it and everything else in between. Now it’s your turn. The crew spent the majority of the winter traveling the country, scrounging snow in the streets and maneuvering sketchy snowpack in the mountains. At the end of it all, they emerged as a single group of friends, doing it because… well, it’s what they love to do.

Level 1 presents “Sunny.”

From Level 1 on Vimeo:

“They say the lack of sunlight affects our mood- that the natural balance of the human mind state quickly shifts with presence of the giant solar fireball in the sky. But this isn’t about winter blues or summer depression. Sunny is a mental disposition, and not just one reserved for beaches and fun parks. Level 1 injected a positive mood into the ski season – giving a dose of light therapy to dark northern landscapes of Scandinavia, Alaska, Japan and British Columbia. So sit back and relax, put your shades on and soak up the rays – the future looks bright.”

Teton Gravity Research presents “The Dream Factory.” 

TGR has traveled to Alaska for the past 17 years, since the early days guiding with Doug Coombs. There’s no other place like it on the planet, the way the snow sticks to such steep faces and creates endless features. We’ve opened up new terrain in Valdez, Haines, Petersberg, the Tordrillos, and now the Knik. “The Dream Factory” will depict the history and modern progression of freeskiing in AK during a record snow year there ­from big-mountain spines, to jumps, to urban. AK truly is a dream factory and, as always, we hope to inspire others with this film.” – Todd Jones, TGR co-founder.
