Sammy C Brings SSX Tricky Style to Big Mountain Skiing

The third episode of Sammy Carlson's series Retrospect, Sammy reflects on the ski edit and film parts of his extensive career. His love for skiing and passion for rap and hip-hop music influenced his vision to pump out ski edits. He viewed his ski edits as mix tapes because he wanted to release them frequently to keep his fans up to date on what he was doing. 

While shooting The Sammy C Project, he again put in numerous hours of filming and the visual rewards were coming in left and right. As he was riding more big mountain and he began to grow more in tune to the natural terrain, he met people along the way who inspired him to take a different approach to his lines down the mountain.

Nowadays, Sammy C's big mountain edits look like something from the SSX Tricky video games we all used to play back in the day.
