“Going For Gold” – La Familia’s New Film is Live!

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

“It’s just the complete package and absolutely chock full of awesome.” – Mr. Bishop, Newschoolers.com

Clayton Vila – FIVE

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.

Clayton Vila presents
Clayton Vila to release “FIVE” this Fall.

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.

You can find out more via Freeskier Magazine & ESPN.

Stay tuned.

UPDATE: Clayton has released the trailer for FIVE [see below]. We're not entirely certain what to say other than it's awesome!

The Way Wesson Sees It

“Adventure!”

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.

10 Ways to Enjoy the Off Season

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.

Check out his top ten below!


1) Recover // Unfortunately this season I’ve had to spend a lot of time in the spring and summer recover from ACL reconstruction surgery. Try not to fit this activity into your schedule! Ha!

***

2) Enjoy the Sun // As soon as spring rolls around it gets even easier to get outside everyday and do something fun. After a long winter it’s just nice to be out in the sun messing around with your friends. Maybe go for a swing.

***

3) Backyard Games // One of my favorite things to do in the summer is play backyard games. Cornhole, bocce ball, horseshoes, frisbee, and so many more. Get out and enjoy the backyard!

***

4) Go to the Beach // Summer is an awesome opportunity to explore beach destinations. A beach is a very awesome place to be after an entire winter in the mountains and snow.

***

5) Skateboarding //  Even though I suck at skateboarding. A still love trying to get better every summer.

***

6) Boating // Getting out on the water in the summer is one of my favorite things to do. From enjoying some beers with friends to surfing, or wakeboarding and everything in between. Being out on a boat is just great.

***

7) Exploring // It’s awesome to get out and explore the world around you. So many natural wonders to be seen!

***

8) Watch Sports // I love getting out to pretty much any and all sporting events. Baseball, football, soccer and whatever else; just a generally good time!

***

9) Amusment Parks // Why not? Go ride some rides. Get hillbilly with it. Those coaster are fun.

***

10) Mountain Biking // Going fast, catching air and shredding through trees like you were skiing. Who doesn’t want to mountain bike?

They See Me Trollin

They See Me Trollin' Season 2

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

Watch the latest from Steve Stepp & the “They See Me Trollin’” series below!
