Something that is a big part of my life is photography. It is great to see people applying some great techniques to their snow times!
Cannot wait for the season to start.
Fancy Footwork: Elias Ambühl travelled to Arosa, in his home country of Switzerland, to try out a jump with LEDs stuck to his skis. The result, captured in stills by photographer Thomas Stöckli and in motion by Fabian Weber, was spectacular.

The Video looks epic,these guys show a very different affinity for exploration. Unlike the heliskiing intensity of the Travis Rice brigade, these guys tuff it out and camp out and hike up the mountains they tear down. The danger levels are so much higher for them, every step of the way.
My photographer brain triggered on some of those time lapse videos however. I saw some pretty heavy handed HDR techniques being used.
Is that even a snowboard? I clearly need to update my knowledge.
It looks like ski boots with step in bindings on a single pow ski. And he looks like he is deliberately falling over gracefully and surfing in the snow like it was water, holding a bad ass carving edge the whole time.
A Video of random shoots from (I assume) a DC sponsored event in Russia. The speaking is Russian but oddly all the songs are in english. Either way its shredding.
Someone in the Comments listed all the songs being played in case you care about them:
Razorlight – Hey Ya!
Faded Paper Figures – North by North
Johnny Cash – Get Rhythm
Lords of the Underground – Madd Skillz
Moby – Mistake [Yuksek Remix] (2010)
Booba – Salade Tomates Oignons (Yuksek Remix)
The Co-Writes – Crazy Girl
This is a good movie and a must watch, love the video production, love the moves. Big air and lots of aggressive moves, even some powder carving 🙂
It’s not snowing in Tahoe so this is all I have to entertain me between visits to the land of no snow.
Sanes 3rd Full Movie (don’t worry I’ll be listing the other two after seeing this).
Super aggressive riders pushing some big air.
Found this old Gem on youtube, the list of snowboard riders on this has some familiar names that you may have seen more recently doing their thing 😉
