UST’ ANZAS (from The Great Siberian Traverse)
from Sherpas Cinema
In the winter of 2015, The North Face team athletes Nick Martini, Ingrid Backstrom and Callum Pettit ventured deep into the Russian wilderness in search of skiing’s ancient origins. This is what they found.
“My father was a very active man. He took us to sea and mountains to have fun and that has influenced me a lot. My grandfather was a craftsman. He would return from hunting with birds or fish, and he’d teach us how to skin and eat it.” –Taro Tamai
Through Gentem Stick, Taro Tamai is making an impact on the snowboard world by harking back to the roots of snowboarding, which lie in surfing. There’s an emphasis on hiking in the backcountry, understanding the terrain and thinking about what it means to be engaged with the mountains.
Heavy sun and low snow has left Valle Nevado ski area reduced to bare rock, a lost season. Lifts shut down and skiers flee towards Santiago in droves. Hot tubs and pisco prevail for the DPS crew. But one morning they awake to find condors filling the sky–scavenging to prepare for an oncoming storm. While the resort hunkers down and weathers the whiteout, they disappear into clouds that boil with a meter of snow. The desert becomes an ethereal sanctuary, dissolving into the sky.

from S. Witts // Situation Pictures
Through a skiers season, the best days, is almost always the last days. -The days you look back on, when all you want is getting back on the mountain. The days that sets your mark for the next season.
So here we are, looking back at the days to come.

Aerial Snowboarding Showreel
I am happy to present my new video showing the features of the big-mountain snowboarding filming from the air.
I spent my last winter entirely in the mountains, and it was the best winter of my life. All footage was filmed in Russia, specifically in mountains of Krasnaya Polyana, Ossetia and Ingushetia Regions.
