Innsbruck-based film production company, Legs of Steel (LOS), teams up with Völkl for their first film shot entirely within ski resort bounds. Follow skiers Anne Kissling, Madison Rose Ostergren, Tim Fritz and Jim Ryan on their hot laps down the front side of the Stubai Glacier in Austria as well as Davos-Klosters and Madrisa in Switzerland.
“I was so excited that LOS and Völkl were eager to showcase in-bounds skiing. It’s what most people experience, but not what most people see in the media,” says Ryan. “It’s not just about powder and helicopters…it’s about skiing with friends and charging hard everyday!”
In Beauty Full Send, LOS captures the perfect balance between creativity, performance and edge with the company’s unique skill at creating an infectious energy between the cast and production crew. “The project felt really special because we were all so collaborative and creative together,” recalls Ostergren. “I felt like we were all performing at 120% the entire time.”
Ever since LOS’s 2021 film, The Ultimate Run, became the first ski film to win a Sports Emmy Award in the category, “Outstanding Camera Work — Long Form,” we’ve been foaming at the mouth waiting for their next short to drop. No matter where you physically find yourself watching this 7-minute, high energy film, Beauty Full Send is sure have you daydreaming of strapping in and loading up first chair—just you, your crew and the lines below.
