The Garrett Russell Experience, Episode I

Who is Garrett Russell is not as accurate or thought provoking a question as what is Garrett Russell? Garrett "G-Funk" Russell is an artist, an impressionist, a warrior poet in the narrative of skiing. Within that storyline he stands out as its most captivating character and most inspired creative director. He is both the ink on the page and the writer. He accentuates his passage through the lines with fresh, inventive technique and style. Each turn and diverse movement is filled with his life’s experience.

His memoirs are written on the faces of the Andes, the Sierras, the San Juans, through countless pillows of white. The epitaphs for his memories are inscribed in the smoky trundles of snow that ribbon off his shoulders as he cuts and smears. The moment is king and Garrett combines his inner vision with the contours of reality. He accentuates this blend through integrated creative impulse within every movement, carving contrast in the conventional without alienating his audience. His skiing is relatable and tangible. It is art at its highest form, with the deepest meaning, and the utmost accessibility. GFunk is a DIY Picasso. His composition is within the audience’s grasp, explicating the elements of the human experience through inspired movement and inspiring methodology. In Bro-ese it is described as “steeze,” in laymen’s terms, “style.” But honestly, it is best described as The Garrett Russell Experience. As Garrett says, "How the body moves in time and motion is art. I like to use skis as a motion of art."

Another Time, Another Place will follow G-Funk in 4 different episodes through the red granite spires and windblown faces of the Argentine Andes to the old growth mystical forests of Japan and into the heart of the American canvas. We are invited in for an investigation of creativity, illumination of spirit, and discovery of true artistic expression. Come for the skiing, stay for the experience.

Skier Sends a 99 Foot Front Flip onto Grass

The lack of snow in France this time of year would probably deter most people from trying to ski there. “Most people” apparently doesn’t include freeskier Anthony Robert, who just Instagrammed himself throwing a superman front flip from a massive, snow-less jump. He lands in the grass nearly 100 feet later, proving once and for all that summer can’t stop anyone who’s really determined to go skiing. All it takes is a little creativity and a huge leap to get

This Twelve-Year-Old’s Season Edit Is Unreal

Troy Podmilsak, a 12-year-old from Utah, just dropped a season edit that rivals those released by skiers more than twice his age. Troy, who goes by TPOD, can throw flawless double and triple flips, along with spins and grabs that pretty much no one else even close to his age can pull off. He’s also the youngest skier ever to successfully land a triple cork 1440 - three flips and four 360 spins all in one jump. This kid is nothing short of incredible, and we can’t wait to see where he

No Snow Not Stopping The Real Skifi In Their Latest Summer Edit

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, and hell no there ain't no
