Over the past several years, Vermont-based HG Skis’ street-skiing, beer-gulpin’ crew has earned well-deserved praise via its rider-built gear and a down-to-Earth approach to skiing. In 2014, they released 5 to 9, a grungy urban film (see below) that put both the brand and its loyal skiers on the map. A year later, they one-upped themselves with Children of the Guan, another impressive flick (also see below) filmed around the East Coast. Now, they’re taking a patient step back to re-focus and come up with something better: a two-year project with footage from both the 2015-16 and 2016-17 seasons. This means viewers won’t get to see a full-length film from HG Skis until fall of 2017, but to keep the hype alive, the brand just released a promo video with last season’s extras, PromoCabana.
Give ‘er a watch, get on that HG Skis train and start counting down for that next full-length film in 2017.
