Tamashii – Searching For The Ever Fabled Moment

Tamashii – A Film by Ross Reid and Jasper Newton

Last Winter, FT Athletes Karl Fostvedt and Anna Segal headed to Japan with fellow skier Andy Mahre and filmakers Ross Reid and Jasper Newton to explore the deep pow and culture – all the while “unplugging from the hyper-connectivity of the modern world,” an achievement that in today’s day & age can be lauded given the persistence of insta-face-tweets, digital fistbumps and emojis over face-to-face conversation. The resulting film, which highlights their “quest to find and experience the ever-fabled ‘moment'” is expected to be released in the Fall, features their six week incursion into blower overhead and the silence of analog – this will for sure be a MUST SEE come October!

“A Skier of Circumstance” – Freeskier profiles Karl Fostvedt

“Stylish, confident, talented. Those are all qualities that make the world of ski media take notice. Thoughtful, humble, independent. These virtues don’t always guarantee attention. In my mind though, Karl is next in a line of skiers who combine both sets of traits, indelible names in our sport including Eric Pollard, Michelle Parker, Dash Longe, Pep Fujas, Mike Hornbeck, Adam Delorme and more, all who have made their names not by scoring higher but rather by playing an entirely different game.” – Nate Abbott
