Crossing the threshold between freesking and nordic skiing is a handful of Norwigian winter sport enthusiasts. With what looks to be one of the best Freestyle Cross Country Skiing edits around these lads do more than tricks at Tryvann’s Vinterpark in Oslo, Norway; they break down barriers on what’s possible on nordic skis. When will the first nordic ski race be finished on alpine skis?
Riders: Hardal Astrup Arnesen, Kristian Aalerud, Eirik Bruland, Ferdinand Aagenes, Nikolai Arnesen, Thomas Berge Foyn

1989 brought a revolution: “(All quiet on) the Western Front” was the first movie by Fall Line Films Productions, and Noah Salasnek, Dave Seoane, and Chris Roach with their day-glo gear and rad, skateboard-inspired moves started a new freestyle movement. This VHS featured everything that makes snowboarding movies so great: innovative tricks, heavy beats, and it made you want to go shred! This video changed some lives, just like the following Fall Line flicks did, “Snowboarders in Exile” (1990) or “Riders on the storm” (1992).
The Young and Hungry squad pushed it hard at The Launch. The event, presented by Snowboarder Magazine and Volcom, which is hosted by Mammoth Mountain showcases the best and most raw talent moving into the pro scene. Perfect weather, prime jibs, and smooth jumps is all that’s needed to make magic happen.
Riders: Eli Lamm, Benny Milam, Brandon Kirkland, Alex Kirkland, Lukas Caye, Cole DiMeglio, Garrett McKenzie, Ryland West, Brock Crouch, Fede Chiaradio, and Miles Falcon
With a rhythmic cadence Strange Brew has been producing jaw dropping edits all season long. From the pure talent of the riders to the strong understanding of composure from the filmers and editors this is a crew that is hard to parallel. If you wrap up the season with one edit, it should be Strange Brew’s Strangers Welcome Episode 11. Well done guys.
