RYAN REPORT // September 21, 2017 // By


September is a transition month. From holidays to back to school. Summer to fall. Hot nights to cool evenings. With the transition comes the first thoughts of snow and skiing. To fuel those day dreams comes the first of the year’s ski movie trailers.

Like the early crop of fruit, the first teasers are a taste of the bounty to come. After digesting these two I’m preparing for a feast.

The film: The Shadow Campaign Volume IV

From: DPS Cinematic and Outdoor Research

What: A four part series of short films

Dropping: Fall 2017

Expect: Powder, culture, powder, touring, powder and horses in Japan, Alaska, Kyrgyzstan. This is the fourth year of the short films from Utah based DPS Skis. Based on year’s passed this will be another artistic journey that goes beyond powder porn, to pulling the beauty out of the search for untracked turns.

The film: This is Home

From: The Faction Collective

What: A feature length film

Dropping: Fall 2017

This Is Home

Expect: What makes a skier? Is it a place where they learned to ski or is it their own vision? That’s the question at the heart of this film. To find out a film crew follows skiers from from Faction Collective to the places they learned to ski all around the world. Mixing urban jibbing with big mountain lines, huge consequence airs and travel from the wilds of Montana to the Czech Republic and everywhere in between, it’s as diverse as the skis Faction makes.
