Vishnu is a small ski company, proudly known for their unique brand and media content. The company is proud to describe themselves as a ‘street skiing’ brand, and from their image most skiers can agree they epitomize the ‘new wave’ style.
In their fourth team edit, entitled ‘Pallet,’ the Vishnu crew butters, jibs, taps and 180’s a hodgepodge of random obstacles. You’ll notice that none of the tricks in ‘Pallet’ take place on especially large features or highlight unprecedented tricks. But some would argue the creative innovations showcased by the Vishnu boys are the main attraction. Expect lots of taps, extra spins, hand-drags all the while being heralded by the club rallying cry– whomp, whomp, whomp.
In an era where modern free-skiing is commercialized beyond belief, the underground aesthetic of brands like Vishnu is somehow a breath of fresh air. Watch the new film and you’ll quickly understand this is a pure project of passion, with relatable, lovable skiers.
This style of skiing is definitely not for every palate out there (*you see what I did there), but if you appreciate small ski companies and independent media, make sure to not miss this feature. Vishnu is also proudly hand making skis in the U.S.A. and supporting a solid roster of skiers. That can’t be the worst thing in skiing right now, is it?
