Winterland was certainly an exciting project for all involved, and we figured you might appreciate another influx of all that awesome footage. Whether it's shredding the steeps of AK with the ladies dream team of Angel Collinson and Elyse Saugstad, Kai Jones re-defining what groms can ski, or front-flipping a classic air with Sam Smoothy during an all-time winter in Jackson Hole, these are some of the most action-packed moments from the film.
Winterland is a celebration of ski and snowboard culture. Today's mountain athletes can only stand as tall as those who came before, these pirates of the past, who followed their own joy and passions.
Kai Jones has accomplished a lot for a 12-year-old kid. He has a multitude of impressive Teton descents under his belt for someone his age, including lines off Mt. Moran and the Middle Teton.
Alaskan skiing is generally considered some of the best on Earth, and for good reason. The lines are steep and clean, lending themselves perfectly to the type of aggressive big mountain skiing and riding that Teton Gravity Research is known for.
I think we can all agree there's something pretty inspiring about watching Sam Smoothy ski. Even after a massive crash while filming in Austria that landed him in the hospital for a few days, Smoothy got back on the horse and rode it all the way to Jackson Hole. There, he spent a few days getting back into the swing of things and teed up some classic XXL airs in the JHMR sidecountry.

There's this great sticker you can buy for your water bottle, it says "be nice, say hi!" It's a great reminder to be a kind human, especially when it's so easy to get wrapped up in our own heads, put headphones in, and ignore the people around us. But don't take it from me, take it from this little shredder who can't help but say hello to everyone on the cat track. Does he let the fact that he's wearing a dog leash and can't run free on the mountain bring him down? NO! He's going to spread
