Midnight Freeskiing On LED Skis – "Moonline"
Matthieu Bijasson skis an impressive line in the dead of night, hurtling couloirs, spines and huge booters with only the bright green LED lights on his skis to guide him. Filmed entirely by drone, Bijasson's artistically shot submission to Rise of the Drones Film Festival, "Moonline," is a surprisingly solemn commentary on how skiing has changed for him, and an unreservedly awesome tribute to what he still loves about it.

Inflik Team Urban Shredding in "Street Offering Part 2"
Usually when a ski team drops a park edit, they don't film it in an actual park. But the Inflik boys Ryan German, Zam Matchett, Jaeden Schneider-Clark and Marc Dandurand take things a little literally in "Street Offering Pt. 2," and between the triple-kink jibs and gutsy concrete lines, make finding their own terrain look like...well, a walk in the park.
