Labor Day has finally come and gone. The days are getting shorter and the nights have replaced the mid-summer heat with a cool crispness throughout the mountains. Soon the white mana from the sky will fall, but until then, it’s time for our next favorite season. No, it’s not fall… but rather the 2021 ski & snowboard movie premiere season! Keep checking in as we continue to add to this list as more ski & snowboard movie trailers are released.

Teton Gravity Research – Stoke The Fire
TGR’s 26th annual film release STOKE THE FIRE explores their athletes’ evolution within skiing and the pure joy that manifests from that process. The stoke means different things to different people based on where they are in their evolution. For some, it’s about committing to a new world. Maybe to a lifestyle. Or maybe the friendships that blossom from that commitment. The choice to enter this world is a spark. While the answers we find are different for everyone, the pursuit of this evolution is something sacred. The pursuit is what stokes the fire.

Matchstick Productions – The Stomping Grounds
The skills, backstories, and mindsets of four elite freeskiers — a renowned veteran, a stunning rookie, a mind-blowing innovator, and a big mountain star carrying on his father’s legacy — are all captured in oversized personal segments based largely around each skier’s home turf.
For decades, the pursuit of adventure, deep powder and massive spines have taken professional skiers like Mark Abma and Michelle Parker to the far reaches of the globe. As skiers, the desire to seek more and to escape is ingrained in our DNA. But that doesn’t mean our immediate surroundings don’t possess their own special treasures. Presented by Toyota, Matchstick Productions brings to you their newest creation, THE STOMPING GROUNDS.
Mark Abma, Rory Bushfield, McKenna Peterson, Michelle Parker, Karl Fostvedt, Tom Wallisch, Logan Pehota, Sam Kuch, Connery Lundin, Lucas Wachs, Banks GIlberti, Cole Richardson, Janelle Yip, Tonje Kvivik, Emil Childs, Adrien Grabinksi, Sam Cohen, Jay Rawe, Wing Tai Barrymore, Colby Stevenson, Hedvig Wessel, Nikolai Schirmer with Taylor Pratt, Lucy Sackbauer, Collin Collins, and Trevor Semmens.

Faction – Roots
Adventuring to undiscovered peaks together, plotting midnight-raids on inner-city handrails, lapping your home run until that last ray of sunshine. Skiing is Collective.
This film is their definition, written by a diverse team, each with their own ideas, their own forms of expression. “The Collective” is more than a sum of its parts. It doesn’t matter who you are or where you come from – it feels good to be part of something special.
