La Familia, or “La Fa,” is a consortium of skiers who have repeatedly defined style over the past years. This collection of skiers, which includes Ahmet & Giray Dadali, Mike King, Jaron Stadler, Mike Hornbeck and Tanner Hall, have released their 2014 project, “Going for Gold,” for free and online!
From backcountry booters, urban rails and drops, the 25+ minute film keeps pace with today’s evolving landscape of what is possible on skis while continuing to promote the non-competitive approach of freeskiing.
“Some of freeskiing’s most defining athletes come together in this awesome free full movie to remind you what the sport is all about!” – David Malacrida, Downdays
Clayton Vila is set to release his own solo project this Fall and we cannot be more excited. FIVE, as the work is titled, will be Vila’s first release as principal director, self edits such as The Creep not withstanding. Details about its contents are few & far between which has only fueled the hype.
As a lead-in to the film, Vila had released a documentary earlier this Summer called A Career Reflection which seeks to show a true reflection of Vila as a former competitor turned urban ski scene phenom.
That’s the theme we gave Will Wesson when we asked him to sort through his instagram feed in order to best showcase his past season. Wesson, who’s been traveling at a ferocious pace both this past winter and current summer season, obliged.
Below you’ll find twenty-one curated photos of the world as Wesson sees it.

With the majority of resorts in the Northern Hemisphere closed down for the season, the countdown has officially started until the bullwheel spins & the 2014/2015 winter season begins! In between then & now, there’s plenty of opportunities to get out and work on evening out that goggle tan. As such, we asked Tom Wallisch to put together a list of ways to enjoy the off season.
Steve Stepp is at it again! After an extended hiatus, Steve returns for his “Victory Lap.”
“Steve has been too busy partying to make any Trollin’ episodes. But why? After meeting one of his lifetime heroes and rediscovering his passion for skiing in Episode 2, Steve Stepp disappeared from public view. We expected him to use this newfound motivation and momentum to push out more amazing ski videos. But after months and months went by with no contact we began to wonder “Where’s Steve Been?”. We finally tracked him down and were left speechless.” – Saga Outerwear
