Before freeskiing's Olympic debut, Dumont is putting out a retrospective of his 10 years in the game
It looks like the new ski movie from the Legs of Steel team is going to be good, really good. There's pyrotechnics and a trip to Russia involved. In The Lost, skiers Thomas Hlawitschka, Paddy Graham, Bene Mayr chase down big mountain lines and street rails (but mostly big mountain lines) for their video parts, and the tricks these guys are stomping is nothing short of insane.
Junkies on a Budget (JOB) just dropped the trailer for its new ski movie "Satori," which will be released on iTunes on October 4. The concept behind "Satori" is to have four different teams of skiers each put together a cinematic masterpiece and assemble them together into one cohesive video. The four crews are Team Lachner (Oscar Scherlin, Jonas Hunziker, Roy Kittler, and Flo Geyer), Team Seanography (Markus Eder, Roman Rohrmoser, Roy Kittler, Basti Hannemann, and Fabian Lentsch), Team PVS (Sam Smoothy, Phil Meier, and Julien Lopez), and Team Real Skifi (Juho Kilkki, Ilka Hannula, and Verneri Hannula).
This is anything but typical of every other skiing movie you've seen
If this didn't make it into Level 1's Partly Cloudy, imagine what did
Five lucky skiers took the trips of a lifetime.
Red Bull Media House and Poorboyz Productions teamed up to create the new ski movie "Tracing Skylines." The trailer for the film just dropped and shows five top skiers going on epic adventures in five different locations.
This is going to be good.
Partly Cloudy is Level 1 Productions' 14th film and the follow-up to last year's award-winner Sunny. The trailer just dropped and it looks incredible. It features some seriously progressive riding, including some of the craziest up-rail clips we've seen. We just hope Level 1 doesn't run out of weather descriptions to name its movies the way that Apple ran out of cats to name its operating systems after.
Partly Cloudy will be available on iTunes and Vimeo in September.

After watching this, you'll want to move to the mountains. Immediately.
Teton Gravity Research has been making some of the best ski movies for a long time. The trailer for its newest video "Way of Life" promises to deliver more of the same. "Way of Life" attempts to capture the passion that skiers share around their life in the mountains. TGR pulled together a team of heavy hitters, including skiers Sage Cattabriga-Alosa, Tim Durtschi, Sammy Carlson, and Dash Longe, and traveled to some of the world's most challenging terrain in Wyoming, Austria, and British Columbia. As always, this promises to be one of the "must see" ski films of the year.
"CRJ: The Movie" comes out in September.
C.R. Johnson helped define modern freeskiing. He did a 1440 all the way back in 1999 (pre-Y2K!) and his video parts with Matchstick Productions, Poor Boyz Productions, and Teton Gravity Research are still required viewing for all up-and-coming skiers. Johnson died in 2010 after falling on a challenging line in Squaw Valley and now a documentary about his life is coming out. "CRJ: The Movie" follows on the heels of "McConkey" which covered the life of the late skier and B.A.S.E. jumper Shane McConkey and premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year.
