Maude Raymond’s Focus on Style

“It’s all about flow and doing what feels good.” – Maude Raymond

Montreal, Canada born Maude Raymond grew up surrounded by a culture of outdoor sports and smooth style. Gymnastics, diving and ski racing were building blocks to her love of freeskiing and an integral foundation to fluidity, flow, and style.

Starting her career competing on the world circuit, Maude stepped away from the start house and focused on traveling and filming to showcase her own style and aesthetic. Inspiring women around the world ever since,  as an extension of her smooth skiing style, she has formed her own brand, MAAD.

From the products, imagery, and film Maude produces the Soul Sister’s style and function are a perfect extension of herself.


“The Soul Sisters are so comfortable and easy to put on! They help me ski smoothly and the height is perfect to keep my knees at their full strength.”

クラシック

これぞまさにクラシック。

先日、FTキャラバンで岩手県にあるスポーツサブさんにお邪魔しました。

そこで見つけたこちらのブーツ。

思わず見せてくださいって言ってしまいました。

20年、30年前!?

かなり前のブーツなんですが、これでいますぐスキーできるのではないかというくらい状態が良くきれいでした。

いまもFTブーツで販売しているクラシック&ドロップキックは、このシェルの形状をしています。部分部分でマイナーチェンジはしているものの、長年続いているこのブーツはすばらしいですね。スキーマニアにはたまらない物でした。

Watch out! This is a picture which I took on my travels through Hokkaido! The northern fox! My new movie which will be released this fall is called „WINTERFOX“ and it’s the first movie I produced completely myself! I filmed most of it myself, except the skiing of me is filmed by someone else! I edited myself and the music I worked with musicians who made the tracks especially for my movie! Thanks to @roryjwilliams and @lacurren ! And thanks to @charlesmeny for helping me with the finishing touches! Soon I will release a teaser with dates of screenings! So watch out for „WINTERFOX“ ! #ajourneythroughwinter #skiing #snowsurfing #skitouring #powder #japan #makewavesmovemountains @roxy @ortovox @lumix #lumixstories #hes12060 #sponsored #lumixg9

“I spent two months in Japan last winter and wanted to show everybody what Hokkaido means to me, through my eyes. I feel so content and calm in that country. It feels like a second home to me. But this was a big challenge as I am new in the field of filming.”– Lena Stoffel

Winterfox, the first part of her new series “a journey through winter”, offers an immersive perspective of the Japanese island, seen through her eyes – a delicate balance between the raw power of skiing and the poetic beauty of Hokkaido’s wildlife and landscapes.

The short movie was shot and directed by Lena Stoffel herself alongside crew members Aaron Jamieson, Simon Abt, and Bine Zalohar. With a very special soundtrack of Rory J Williams & Lee Ann Curren, this short film is a unique experience.
