A Skier Knows – Spirit Of Alaska
from Peak Performance
THERE IS A FEELING that is shared with skiers all over the world. It’s nothing you can teach, learn or explain. It’s something you feel. Something you know. It stops you from sleeping during a snowstorm – knowing that fresh powder awaits you. It gives you the urge to continue hiking up the mountain when everyone else is stopping at the top of the ski lift. It hits you when looking back at your line at the bottom of a run, wanting to go back up and do it again. It’s a different way of looking at the world and something only A Skier Knows.

Project Phoenix presented by Lukas Joas – a movie about his last season
Here is my own little movie project I was working on this year. It’s been a season with many ups and downs and a year with lots of new experiences. One thing I can definitely say is, that I couldn’t have done this without the help of so many great people around me. Thanks everyone for the support and for pushing me instantly to work so hard on myself as a skier.

projectDETOUR – TRAILER
from David Bertschinger Karg
projectDETOUR is a short film series about three trips to three destinations. We’ve been hiking waist deep powder in the Alps, we high fived sheep farmers in Greece and rode our motorbikes through the state of California.
Right now I can not think of a better way to spend a winter season. Definitely one for the books! Stay tuned for the short film series dropping Fall 2015.
