You’ve never seen “powder” skiing quite like this

One year ago, skiers Nicolas Vuignier, Sampo Vallotton and Florian Bruchez got together for a one-of-a-kind park shoot. Using multiple natural pigments and powders, the crew hit a series of features, releasing black ochres as they sent ‘er. Today, the crew is happy to present the impressive project, dubbed PBK1.

“This is a project I’ve had in the back of my head for quite some time,” says skier Nicolas Vuignier. “Having seen other filmmakers experimenting with natural pigments, I knew there was room for another visually interesting experiment. In April 2015, I gathered a few riders and experienced photographers to perform this conceptual clip, in which skiers release black ochres while taking off, leaving ephemeral trails behind them as they fly.”

Give PBK1 a watch and keep your eyes peeled for a “making of” video, dropping soon.

Note: The powders used in this video are natural earth pigments (ochres) and are harmless to the environment.
