When you can’t get to the mountains, if you’re stuck indoors or if you just want a bit of off-season inspiration, sometimes a good snowsports film is the ultimate fix. From dramatic documentaries to feature-length films and brand created shorts, there’s some seriously watchable stuff out there. If you can’t hit the slopes right now, we reckon it’s the next best thing.
We hear from one of our own at Snow+Rock, Jeremy Woods – passionate, long-time snowsports lover who moved from Australia to British Columbia for a working holiday as a lift operator and ended up running the snowboard shop on-hill for four seasons. He hasn’t looked back since then, joining Snow+Rock with the mindset that there is nothing he’d rather do than work in snowsports.
“This is an especially difficult time for the snowsports and outdoor industry: for the enthusiasts, the workers, the brands, the athletes, the beginners, the experts and everyone involved with this amazing “thing” that I love so much and hold so closely to my own identity. But it will pass, and when it does, I’ll be out there to get my turns in and get back to what makes me happy, hopefully with everyone else that loves the same “thing” as me.
In the meantime, here are a collection of some of my favourite snowboarding and skiing films to bring back the stoke on the longer-than-usual wait for next season. Stay strong!”
