There is a lot that goes into getting ready for a day of filming/shooting snowboarding in the back country. Wake up at dawn, gas/oil up the snowmobile, drive x amount of hours, unload, start up the sled and get up that hill. While it is very convenient rooping around on a sled to get the shot, being out is such beautiful scenery choking on the two stroke engine exhaust can take away from the experience. So what is a snowboard film crew to do? Well if your involved with Leeward Cinema you gather a group of riders, pack your provisions ,strap snowshoes/split-boards on your feet, hike out, and camp out in the snow for a few days documenting all shredding/ shenanigans along the way. No engine exhaust, no gasoline, no digging out a flipped over sled, (shudder) just hiking out, and taking time to really appreciate the whole experience. They have a laundry list of amazing riders to boot. The teaser is rad as well, I think the beetlejuice theme really tops it off. Good show guys/gals,can’t wait to see the final cut!
