Sure, you wait all summer for fall’s ski film release, frothing at the first sight of snow.
But these days, everyone is a filmer, and production companies are getting more creative about miniseries and episodic content.
That’s great news, because you’re guaranteed fresh ski stoke all winter long. Here are some of the best ones coming.
“The Shadow Campaign”
DPS Skis and director/filmer Ben Sturgulewski, the team behind last year’s viral Snowflake video, are back with a three-part series called “The Shadow Campaign. ”
Sure to be moody and beautifully shot, they’ll feature places like B.C. and Alaska.
“A Skier’s Journey”
Jordan Manley has one of the most interesting and patient eyes in the ski industry. He has a way of looking at mountain culture that brings out the unseen stories.
In the fourth and final season of his “A Skier’s Journey” film series, he travels to places like China, Iran and France.
Westward, which is sponsored by Flylow Gear, is a look at the people in skiing. “Westward follows the life stories of four unique individuals who’ve chosen to forgo traditional lives — like desk jobs in skyscrapers and nine-to-five commutes — for alternative paths in the mountains,” they say.
Shot by Jackson Hole, Wyoming-based KGB Productions, it gets into the nitty-gritty and the backstories of the people who have forged a life in the mountains, like photographer Adam Clark and ski mountaineer Andrew McLean.
Long the gold standard for ski webisodes, Salomon TV is produced by Mike Douglas, the godfather of skiing.
Over the years, the series has traveled across the globe finding interesting and weird stories about skiing — and generally just finding really deep snow.
Line Traveling Circus
Like it weird? Wanna see some of the best freeskiers in the world get into bizarre situations?
“Traveling Circus,” which features “[an] underground band of misfit skiers [led] by Will Wesson & Andy Parry,” might just be the funniest, most fun corners of the skiing internet.
And the ridiculousness never downplays how talented they are.
