Kilian Jornet is considered the greatest mountain runner ever.

But he doesn't consider himself a runner.

In May this year Kilian is in his new backyard in Norway as he attempts to ski and run in a single day the Seven Summits of Romsdalen, a 77km route with 9000m of elevation gain.

There's a wonderful comparison between snow powder-boards and surfing-boards and the guys who make the kit.

In Horizon Lines: Ep2 - Japan the guys to out to Japan to test the snow-surf board.

Epic boards, epic conditions.

Snowboarding in Japan is living for the 'now', and the essence of snowboarding is in the surf.

Love the video guys.

Free-skier Sam Anthamatten was born and raised in Zermatt.

In My Playground discover how he transforms the labyrinth of crevasses and seracs into a playground that only seems possible in video games.

When Sam was asked What is your favourite thing about Zermatt? 

Sam Anthamatten answered "Zermatt is home, I know every corner of it, so I have a deep relation with this place. My favourite thing? It is the combination of; family, friends, sports, security…"

In the spirit of explorers before his time, Forrest Shearer gathers a crew consisting of Jeremy Jones, Bryan Iguchi, and surfer Kohl Christensen to travel to Iceland in search of of an idea.

In Horizon Lines ep 2: Iceland a plan emerges that involved snowboarding, surfing, and new experiences.

It was only here that they realized they've all visited this landscape before but only in childhood dreams.

Imagine drawing a picture with snow covered peaks, peeling waves off the coastline, and a sailboat anchored in the bay.

Learning from the locals this place does exist if you want it to.

You just have to expand your horizon lines.

Whilst they were filming Guilt Trip (see post for 22nd December below), the crew had a brief boating excursion on Sermilik Fjord. 

Glaciologist, Alun Hubbard, gives some fascinating commentary on glacial melt and different types of icebergs as they film this great 360 degree footage. 

Their small boat creeps precariously over the great white icebergs in the waters around Greenland.

Play the video and drag the image around to get the full 360 effect - its magic!

Thursday 22nd December

Guilt Trip - the Full Movie: The only thing greater than this group of skier's desire to claim a first ski descent on Greenland's second highest peak is the size of their carbon footprint to get there.

Loaded with guilt, they decide to bring along renowned glaciologist, Alun Hubbard, who’s scientific hypothesis, if proven, could rewrite popular projections of global sea-level rise.

However, the entire expedition is put in question when they arrive in Greenland and discover their objective is beyond the range of all available aircraft.

Shot on location in Greenland.

Full movie below.

Great new stunt footage from Bogner.

For world champion skier John Eaves, pretending to be unable to ski for Willy Bogner’s Fire and Ice is not as easy as one might think.

To create this comedic scene, in which Eaves’ character is doing his very best to impress his love-interest, an experienced skier played by Suzy Chaffee.

Eaves himself had to perform some very difficult stunts while pretending to be totally out of control.

Love the slap-stick and tom-foolery.

Bogner also brought out this video last week.

Willy Bogner’s Fire, Ice and Dynamite Megathon race, is a lot like Wacky Races, but on planks.

Once again it features the legendary John Eaves.

This time Eaves is racing for team “Fire and Ice” dressed in pink and orange and who goes on to win the race.

Moreover, right at the end of the race a group of these guys manage to nail the rail loop.



Tuesday 20th December

In Case of Emergency (ICE) you may need to build yourself an Igloo.

Ed Leigh leads the Igloo construction team in Verbier.

You may get some handy tips in the timelapse video.

Thursday 15th December

A cool edit of skiing video-snippets taken over the 2015/16 season and compiled by Duncan Adams.

It was filmed on loacataion in British Columbia, Verbier in Switzerland, Argentina, Montana, Colorado and Mammoth CA.

We've spent ages trying to work out which sequence is shot in Verbier and still can't spot the familiar terrain.

Let us know if you can spot the Verbier sequence!

Normally we feature a list of all the athletes involved in the making of the film.

But not this time.

Instead we have a list of 'filmers', and the list includes Etienne Merel, Sean Logan, Brady Perron, Martin Bernard, Thomas Vincent, Blue Max Media, Manu Fombeurre, Steven Popovich.

Nice one guys.

Wednesday 14th December

The Sheffield Ski Village closed in April 2012 after it was destroyed in a fire.

Two skiers and one boarder went back to the charred remains of the dry ski slope where they learned to ski.

The ski village was a key piece in the journey of some of the UK's best freestyle skiers to the top of their sport, including James Woods, James Machon, Ellie Koyander and Katie Summerhayes, all of whom are now Team GB athletes.

The aim of this video Red Run is to drum-up support for the Sheffield Ski Village in the city known as the sporting capital of the United Kingdom.

The song is ours, it's called "Wolves (Take You)" and it is on Wildling debut EP, which is coming out in December.

Seffield council now wants a developer to turn the 30-acre site into a "nationally significant attraction", including the possibility of building a snow sports centre.

The ski village has lain derelict since the fire.

More information on the redevelopment in News In Brief on PlanetSKI here.

Tuesday 13th December

Last winter Sage Kotsenburg and Halldor Helgason got together to make a snowboard movie.

Monster Energy: Dayumm is a movie that pushes the level of both riders and showcases snowboarding in a way they both believe in.

There are a lot of rail tricks on metal bannisters, bouncing off walls and more technical tricks to some of the most creative features to date.

These guys look as though they are having as much fun as possible.

In addition to Sage Kotsenburg and Halldor Helgason, other riders include Max Warbington, Teddy Koo, Nils Mindnich, Jesse Paul, Benny Milam, Sven Thorgren, Jake Olson Elm, Eiki Helgason.

Filmed in quite an impressive list of locations - Japan, Minnesota, Austria, Italy, Iceland and Norway.

Travis Rice explains what took place before, during and after he was taken out by an avalanche in The Fourth Phase.

He explains how safety and proper preparation is a key part of riding in big mountains like Alaska.

The advice he offers is relevant to all back country skiing.

Monday 5th December

Scientists and skiers go to Greenland on a Gult Trip - with Salomon TV .

Gult Trip is a movie featuring a bunch of skiers needing to justify their expedition to Greenland, so they take along a renowned glaciologist.

It seems that Alun Hubbard, who’s scientific hypothesis, if proven, could rewrite popular projections of global sea-level rise.

The entire expedition is put into question when the group arrives in Greenland to discover their objective is beyond the range of all available aircraft.

Instead of the expected helicopter flight, an alternative mode of transport is suggested - a husky ride.

Its shot on location in Greenland.

Lovely scenery and an interesting story.

Sit back for 30 minutes and enjoy the full movie.

Friday 2nd December


Sit back and enjoy some lovely lines and powder in Revival .

Sam Smoothy Skis a Line Above Dangerous Cliffs:

Sam Smoothy heads up to Alaska with the TGR film crew.

Sam, the New Zealander, teamed up with the familiar faces Nick McNutt and Angel Collinson.

The trio worked together to ski heavy terrain with life-threatening exposure.

The line proposed in this episode of Behind the Line, showcases some of the problems faced in extreme backcountry skiing.

Caught in a difficult situation with soft, deep, unstable snow, Sam considers the options and makes the right decision.

His colleagues nervously watch below.

Instead of skiing the planned line, he opts for the safer line.

Sam still straight lines a full Alaskan face.


Horizon Lines - Trailer:

This group of more than 14 guys seemed to enjoy a never ending winter.

This was filmed at opposite ends of the planet in Japan, Iceland and Chile.

The world was their inspiration.

They travelled to see if they could find what was beyond the horizon line, and they found adventure in the snow.... a lot of powder snow.

The crew included a bunch of snowboarders and surfers with Forrest Shearer, Jeremy Jones, Josh Dirksen, Bryan Iguchi, Orange Man, Kohl Christensen, Alex Lopez, Nick Russell, Kael Martin, Griffin Siebert, Chris Christenson, Alex Yoder, Ramon Navarro, and friends.
