Magnetic – Whistler Blackcomb
This is quite uncommon: The film crew of "Magnetic" shot their new ski film in only one single ski resort: Whistler Blackcomb. For many years now, the ski resort in Canada has been one of the best in the world and, oh yes, it has plenty to offer, especially in terms of Coast Mountains powder skiing sessions. Of course, freeride star Eric Hjorleifson is also part of Whistler Blackcomb's in-house production.
The sold-out world premiere of Magnetic took place in Whistler at the beginning of October. The film is scheduled to be available online in November 2017.
Triumph – Tanner Hall
A must see for every freeskier is the new ski movie by legend Tanner Hall. The multiple X-Games winner is in the center of action in "Triumph", which he has produced all by himself without a budget. Newly produced sequences from the "best winter of his life", as Hall likes to describe the 2016/2017 winter season, alternate with archive images from his career.
Starting in October, the approximately 12-minute film will be available for free online at Armada Skis.
Lite Years – The Big Picture
True powder action awaits the viewers of The Big Picture crew's – consisting of Chris Logan and Parker White - newest work, which is called "Lite Years". For the first time, this is a 25-minute movie and not a web series as they used to produce before. The film is supported by Rossignol.
Starting in mid-October, Lite Years will be available for free and in full length on Vimeo. >> watch the whole movie
Guest List – Good Company
After "Vice Versa", the Good Company Crew will even go one better with their new full-length movie "Guest List" which is to be released in fall 2017. Apart from numerous street sequences, the movie does also not miss out on backcountry and park freestyle action. Tom Wallisch is surely the most famous freeskier within the film.
The film is available for download on iTunes starting in mid-October.
Bearings – Blank Collective
In their third movie "Bearings", the crew of Blank Collective is scattered to the four winds in British Columbia. Perfect Canadian poweder? Action-packed jumps and breathtaking nature?
