We’ve all seen those edits that make our jaw slam onto the floor. The ones that straight up knock the wind out of you, metaphorically speaking, of course. Those rare edits combine the right touch of artistic flair, raw skiing, harmonious music choice, and smooth talking commentary. Of course, the ’09 classic Tommy, Símon “Joss” edit will come to mind for most, (note that vintage FREESKIER tag to start the video), or even their much more recent mind-busting collaboration, “Resurrection“. Parker White’s iconic “Partly Cloudy” segment, or the newer Bunch film, “Is There Time for Matching Socks?“, are both two that certainly top this viewers personal list as well.
We could go on and on about unbelievable captures that demonstrate all the necessary qualities that make them true masterpieces. That being said, certain recognition needs to be paid when a crew can crank out flick after flick that falls under this category of practically immaculate. Of course, I am alluding to the ferocious Fernie hustlers known as, you guessed it, THE MUTHAF*CKIN’ BURRRLAPZ! These animals are certainly anything but sheep, as they walk their own path by skiing, filming, and editing exactly how they want to. (That may have been the most layered skiing reference of all time, click here to find out why).
With the world recognized gangly snow slider Dylan Siggers paving the way, The Burrrlapz has certainly produced some unbelievable heavy hitting segments in their day. Their YouTube, as well as the Line Skis channel, contain some serious content. Their creative and well-fitting producing style never seems to fail, and “Beat-Pad” is as original as ever. With subtle editing tricks, fantastic, possibly home-made music, and skiing that is as bullet proof as it gets, this fantastic art project is right in line with previous projects. What really gives The Burrrlapz that lovable feel has to be their brotherly love and camaraderie. Here we see Dylan Siggers, Lokal (legend) Dave, and Josh Mcskimming linking up with Garrett Capel and Janelle Yip in the northern lands of Revelstoke. The crew seems to get along swimmingly, and how could they not with conditions like that.
It’s been said before, and it will be said again, The Burrrlapz DOES NOT MISS. Throw in those headphones, turn off the lights, and settle in for the Picasso caliber ski art project that is “Beat Pad”.
