Nimbus Independent: [Coordinates]

"We don't take ourselves too seriously at Nimbus, for us it's all about capturing skiing in a way that feels like a day on the hill with friends.”

Nimbus Independent started in 2007 through the efforts of Eric Pollard, Pep Fujas and Andy Mahre, and they've been doing just that ever since--and defining the sport in the process. Their newest film, [Coordinates], is no exception, following the trio and friends from Japan to BC to Mt. Hood. Good times--and deep snow--abound.

4FRNT's "Compounds": The Season is Coming...

4FRNT is one of the few ski companies who still put together an annual team video, and in preparation for their upcoming film "Elements" the B-Team (only in name, not in talent) has released their own edit. Featuring the likes of Niklas Karlstrom, Erik Naess, Rob Aseltine, Tim Gage, Yan Bussieres, Jonathan Steltzer, Joshua Randich, Sam Molloy, and legend Steele Spence, the crew travels from backcountry pow to urban steeze to monster parks--of both the snow and Astroturf variety...

For their 10th film, Powderwhores Productions present "SOMETHING ELSE," a film that is part documentary, part ski porn and all good times. Sporting a cast that includes all-stars like JP Auclair, Andrew Mclean and Carston Oliver and riddled with monster lines, over-the-dome pow and their usual low-brow humor, Powderwhores are ringing in a decade in style.

Jackson Hole, WY has been an undoubted proving ground for big mountain skiers for decades, so it's always impressive when someone finds a new way to ski the area's classics. For Owen Leeper, that included a rock slide into S&S couloir, a backflip into Corbet's, a 70-foot front flip, among many others, all resort accessed, proving an old dog like Jackson can learn new tricks...
