Follow me Premier

Last night was the movie premier of Follow me. A long awaited mountain biking movie.

























Follow me was created by some of the top mountain bike filmmakers in the world. Visually stimulating with stunning views, intricate camera work and flawless editing, it's a movie everyone will enjoy watching over and over! The soundtrack chosen for the movie was perfectly fitting with the riding as well.

























You could tell everyone loved the movie! People were cheering every time something big or something gnarly was being done or when they recognized a familiar location. Follow me with it's wide variety of locations, is sure to please every one.

Orage Masters

Mother nature seemed to have other plans that didn't include competitions today. No worries though! Everyone said screw you mother nature, the course crew took care of the soft snow and the show began! Funky costumes (a raccoon, Mario and Luigi, a bunch of mimes) and colours, big air and big tricks is what was in store for everyone. Even face paint and electric guitars! All the athletes threw down hard! The hip was definitely the way to hit it big!!! K2 scooped the gold in the end!

At the Orage Masters, Neon is the New Black

It's the ski industry's most infamous Anti-Comp - a slopestyle event like no other. With its “break all rules” attitude, costume-clad competitors, on-hill shenanigans, co-ed team format and 6 year history of being the funnest comp on the planet, the Orage Masters 7 offers the freshest take on skiing as a team sport that you’ve ever seen.

But where did it come from? Who could have dreamed such insanity? TWSSF checked in with Orage's Mike Nick this summer for an historic perspective. You can check it out here.

If A Skier Hucks in the Forest, and Noone Takes a Picture, Does Anybody Care?

It might be called a "ski and snowboard" Festival, but TWSSF is as much a convergence for photographers as anything. With the 13th Pro Photographer Showdown pitting Brian Bielmann, Yves Garneau, Erik Seo, Mason Mashon, Grant Gunderson and Jeremy Koreski against each other, and the new re:Action portrait prize, TWSSF puts up $21,000 cash in prizes to recognise the craft.
