The 2010 / 2011 ski season is all but wrapped up. It was one hell of a season that saw copious amounts of snowfall, new tricks being thrown down, lots of BN’s and all other kinds of shenanigans. Here are five things that defined the 2010/2011 ski season according to Unofficial:
Wearable Video Cameras:It seemed like everyone and their mother had a wearable camera this season. Skiers and riders attached them to either their helmets, poles, chests, boards and sometimes all of these places at once. In ten years when we look back on the 2010/11 ski season we will be laughing our asses off at these silly looking cams that we have been wearing.
Tilt Shift Videos: Just about every resort this season had some local video guy make a tilt shift video. These clips are made by using a tilt shift camera lens or by using an after effects program which is able to make just about anything appear miniature.
Snow! Lots and lots of f#$%ing Snow! Just about everywhere (except for AK and Europe) got pounded with snow this season. Many resorts across the US and Canada had seasons that fell comfortably within their top ten seasons ever.
Naked Skiing: Our little film G.N.A.R. became a worldwide smash hit when it was released in January 2011. The success of the film led to countless skiers and riders ditching their clothing, letting it all hangout and going for it in BN form.
Triple Corks: This season at Winter X Games 15, Torstein Horgmo, nailed a triple in his final attempt to win Snowboard Big Air. Later in the season Mark McMorris stomped the first-ever Backside Triple Cork 1440.
