Hereâ€™s what youâ€™ve missed so far:
Episode 1: Charles Gagnier
Quite possibly the quietest skier of all time, Charles Gagnier prefers to let his skiing do the talking. For the first time, Charles opens up about his ski racing roots, the trip that launched his pro career, what scares him, and whether or not he thinks Simon Dumont and Tanner Hall are good for the sport.
Episode 2: Verbier Extreme
The Verbier Extreme is widely regarded as the most prestigious Big Mountain freeskiing competition in the world. In 2008, it almost became the deadliest after a massive avalanche swept the Bec des Rosses during the competition inspection. Watch Kaj Zackrisson, Cody Townsend, and Elyse Saugstad narrowly escape with their lives, then regain their composure to challenge for the world title.
Episode 3: Jib Academy Final
After more than 20 regional Salomon Jib Academy events around the world, the cream of the 16 and under park and pipe crop finds themselves at Mammoth, California for the Jib Academy final â€“ a week-long session with Salomonâ€™s International Team. Enjoy watching the Salomon team get pwned by a bunch of 14 year olds
Episode 4: Whistler Pillows
Mark Abma and Mike Douglas show why Whistler is one of the best places in the world to live if youâ€™re a freeskier. As the first of two Whistler shows this season, this episode looks at the deeper and darker side of the Whistler experience, and offers a helmetcam perspective on what itâ€™s like to drop in on some of Whistlerâ€™s insane pillow lines.
Episode 5: Girls in New Zealand
K.Turski and K.Herman offer a glimpse inside their lives as they train for the upcoming season at Snowpark NZ. Even if you have no interest in watching the on-snow abilities of two park skiers in the world, youâ€™ll want to check this out just to see Kaya take on the scariest thing of her life.
Episode 5 Bonus: Kaya Turski Freakout
Episode 6: Austria Big Mountain
In a quest to find the best snow in Europe, Mike Douglas and Chris Rubens meet up with Kaj Zackisson in Austriaâ€™s Montafon Valley. After a week straight of slaying big lines under blue skies, Rubens has a spectacular crash which leaves the remainder of the trip in jeopardy. Part 1 of 2.
Episode 7: St. Mortiz Heli
Mike Douglas and Kaj Zackisson head to the worldâ€™s swankiest ski resort, St. Moritz, in an effort to find the last good snow in the Alps. Between dodging Fur coats, toy dogs, and race horses, they realize that jumping in a helicopter is the only way to get the lines they want. After his crash back in Montafon, Austria, the first question to be answered is whether or not Chris Rubens will be able to join the rest of the crew. Part 2 of 2.
Episode 8: Quebec Rails
Matt Walker and Mike Henitiuk head to Quebec, Canada to meet up with Charles Gagnier for a week-long urban rail mission across la belle province. Youâ€™ll learn that Walker sucks at speaking French, Henitiuk is much better at sliding rails than he is at growing a soul patch, and Charles quietly crushes everything he touches. Weâ€™re not gonna lie — this might just be our best show of the year. Booyah!
Episode 9: Haines, AK
Cody Townsend and Elyse Saugstad make a spring pilgrimage from California to Haines, Alaska to heliski in one of the burliest mountain ranges on earth. We take an inside look into the ups and downs of the slow-burn reality of an Alaskan heli trip, from shredding the line youâ€™ve been dreaming about all season, to wondering what to do on the 7th straight down-day.
