Tis the season for every skiing/snowboarding brand to drop their pro athlete edits, and I’m honestly not upset about it.
It’s a pretty effective way to sell their product, and we get some awesome clips of skiing and riding. It’s a win-win situation for the entire industry.
Quiksilver dropped this edit of snowboarders Austen Sweetin and Mile Fallon ripping around Jackson, WY’s home hill Snow King Resort. I loved all of the innovative side-hits, powder slashes, and classic resort riding clips used.
Sometimes people forget that pro skiers and riders can have a damn good time at the resort. They don’t always have to be charging big heli lines or backcountry features to have fun. It’s fun to watch them make us look like the true amateurs we are when they ride the resort.
