The months between the conclusion of winter and the beginning of another are typically loaded with release upon release of snowboard and ski teasers. This mere fact is what gets most riders through snow withdrawals as they live vicariously through the companies and shredders that put these trailers together.
Still, the bombardment of snow film teasers can get tiresome, so we’ve decided to gather a handful of the best ones and put them together in various posts. Look at us, being all selfless and what not. The first few are very different from one another yet equally jaw dropping and legit. Without further ado…
“E-Gal Eye” Teaser from Bald E-Gal Productions: Based out of Minnesota, where the kinked rails flow like wine and urban jibbers instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano, Bald E-Gal Productions has produced another film stuffed with burly and stylish urban riding topped off with some smooth pow turns.
Featuring: Austin Young, Randy Vannurden, Dan Brisse, Shane Ruprecht, Yusaku Horii, Matthew Boudreaux, Cody Beiersdorf, Seth Huot, and Krister Ralles, and including friends Tommy Young, Erik Zimmerman, Ryan Barker, Charlie Fenton, Peter Limberg, Nate Lavik, Drew Poganski, Bjorn Leines, and more. The movie drops Sept. 1.
“Further” Teaser from Jeremy Jones and Teton Gravity Research: Following the 2010 groundbreaking release of “Deeper,” the first film of three that broke countless boundaries within big-mountain riding, TGR and Jeremy Jones have debuted the trailer for their second project, “Further.” The crew travels to even more uncharted areas that have major consequences if one step goes wrong. The trailer conveys this truth while showing us insane snowboarding. Jeremy Jones talked about the intensity of their mission: “Primarily because we’re trying to get these serious faces, and get them in powder. And there’s just no room for error on the calls that you have to make in the mountains. We’re on these faces for hours, and if you have one little pocket break on you on the way up, it could kill you. And on the contrary, if we were on our boards riding and a little pocket breaks, it’s no big deal. So that just adds this major intensity. Every day.”
Featuring: Jeremy Jones, Terje Haakonsen, Ryland Bell, Lucas Debari, Forrest Shearer, Josh Dirksen, Mitch Toelderer, and Bibi Pekarek.
“Superheroes of Stoke” Teaser from Matchstick Productions: MSP isn’t looking to disappoint with the release of their 2012 feature film, “Superheroes of Stoke,” and why would they? They ultimately never do. Celebrating the 20th anniversary of their first ski film, “Soul Sessions and Epic Impressions,” their latest endeavor aims to show the evolution of ski films and the work that goes into them. This teaser plays both angles of where skiing began and where it’s landed today. Executive producer Murray Wais explains: “We never knew we’d make it this far, so when we realized that this new film would represent a milestone in MSP’s history, we decided to relate where we’ve been to where we are now. Skiing has always meant everything to us, and we’re all living in a really exciting era for the sport. This movie captures that excitement and puts it on display courtesy of the latest filmmaking equipment available.” Get ready for powder, hammers, park booters, and some throwback footage that leaves a lasting impression.
