After the international success of her ski films AS WE ARE (2010)*, an all female ski movie and SHUKRAN MOROCCO (2012)**, Austrian freeskier Sandra Lahnsteiner*** once again doubles up in her role as ski film producer and athlete and puts together her best all-female ski movie yet: SHADES OF WINTER.
Presenting the unique expressions of female freeskiing today, SHADES OF WINTER features deep powder and pillows in Japan, skiing all-time conditions in the Alps, big mountain lines in Haines, AK, and the highest level of female freestyle skiing seen yet from the Nine Queens event in Austria.
“This is a movie about strong women who have dedicated their lives to a passion, a passion which connects us all” says Sandra Lahnsteiner, proud and happy to have created a platform for some of the best female freeskiers around the world to celebrate their shared love of skiing.
