Video: Mastermind Nico Vuignier Drops a Bizarrely Beautiful Ski Edit

When big mountain skiers and snowboarders Jeremie Heitz, Nico Vuignier, Sam Anthamatten, Laurent DeMartin, Florian Bruchez, and Mathieu Schaer get together, you know it’s going to be wild. What we didn’t expect, however, was filmmaker and skier Nico Vuignier’s take on the matter.

That’s exactly what Vuignier did for his latest edit Heatseeker, which might be one of the strangest ski edits we’ve seen, and that’s taking into account stuff like Sweetgrass Production’s Valhalla or Afterglow night segments, some of Vuignier’s older night segments, or Sage’s segment from TGR’s Almost Ablaze. We're stoked to learn more about how this bizarrely beautiful film was made.

Cowboy: Clayton Vila’s Crested Butte Director’s Cut

For director Clayton Vila, the relationship with Teton Gravity Research has always been a collaborative experience. Unique within action sports filmmaking, Clayton often creates two different cuts from the same TGR segment. One seamlessly aligns with TGR’s snow film, and in his director’s cut, Vila has complete artistic freedom.

Video: Cody Townsend to Send the 50 Classic Ski Descents

He might be one of the goofiest skiers in the industry, but Cody Townsend has some serious big mountain chops. Over the years, he has ticked off some seriously gnarly descents all over the globe, but this time, he wants to show off some of his favorite lines closer to home. If you haven’t seen the book on a coffee table somewhere, you’re probably not hanging out with the right crowd. Townsend plans to tick off all 50 of the descents (he’s already done a few, like Denali’s Messner Couloir in
