The Real Skifi crew is back again with their unique brand of new age ski wizardry. With each edit these guys make, you question the limits of skiing and what actually falls into the loose definition of the sport itself. To these Finnish freestyle fanatics, it's really anything you can do in ski boots with skis under your feet. So let your imagination take hold on this whole concept of "skiing" and watch as the boys take to the streets, woods, and lakes of Finland.
Every year, TGR puts on the Grom Comp with the goal of showcasing the next generation of talent in skiing and snowboarding. Each year we are blown away by the talent and dedication on display from groms who submit an edit. From the park to the backcountry, the future of both skiing and snowboarding is in the good hands courtesy of these young chargers. Powder day in the Canyon. Max Meza photo.
