Super fun South America ski edit from Andrew Rumph. Rather than try to look super rad at all times Andrew lets us in on the fun of learning, from foam pit backflip attempts to on snow at Woodward, all the way to backflips in “natural terrain” at Portillo, Chile. Andrew’s edit features some fun skiing including footage from a 2nd place finish at The North Face Chilean Freeskiing Championships at El Colorado, Chile. We can sense the stoke and we dig it.
Watch the reigning FWT champ getting after it in Colorado. El Colorado, Chile that is. Surfy snow, good light and top notch skiing is on tap in this POV of the Day. Hey, remember people, you are only one flight away and a few vacation days away from this being your life right now… What is your excuse??
The skiing is looking pretty damn good at Lenas right now from what we’re seeing from Spanish skiers Jordi Tenas, Adria Millan, Adria Perez de Rozas & Txema Trull. The boys say that the Marte lift is open and that it brings you to paradise. We agree…
The La Parva, Chile based The Eye of the Condor is headed into it’s third season stronger than ever with an impressive athlete list. This may be the summer skiing event we look forward to most as the focus is on athlete-driven content at the peak of popsicle and A/C season here in the Northern Hemisphere. For Summer 2013 the “Eye of the Condor” athlete list includes Julian Carr, Todd Ligare, Sierra Quitiquit, Drew Tabke, LJ Strenio, Tim Durtschi and way more. Tune in for official teams + footage and photos from last year to whet the appetite before the event runs August 2-9.
As if you weren’t already foaming at the mouth to head down to South America this summer, Powder has put together an edit following Bryce Phillips, Ingrid Backstrom, writer John Clary Davies and guide Mark Lasseter to a zone called “Valley X” in Nevados de Chillan, Chile. Watch, drool and have another popsicle.
What you’re not going to find in this episode of Salomon Freeski TV is a lot of cliffs, steep terrain, and pow. What you will find in this episode is a different look at skiing in South America. Enjoy as ‘Alexi Godbout, Vincent Gagnier, and Leo Ahrens travel halfway around the world to feed their hunger for flight on skis. When they arrive, they find the same passion in the eyes of the kids living at the foot of the Chilean Andes.’
