POW # 2
The Nimbus Edition.
We looove Nimbus, so we decided to dedicate this episode of POW to the truest crew around.
Nimbus Independent was founded back in 2007 by legendary skier Eric Pollard. Together with his fellow friends and pro skiers Pep Fujas, Andy Mahre and Chris Benchetler (also legendary) they decided to set out and make ski films that represent the sport as they see it. They joined forces with long time friends Justin Wiegand and Ike Smith to help film and Gary Winberg to manage the business. The goal is simple, to help make skiing better.
I must admit I wasn't to impressed by their early work. But after the first year they really stepped it up and have been getting better ever since. Today I think they are leading the game in many ways, showing skiing as true as possible out of their perspective which is very close to mine.
Keep up the good work Nimbus, Spatziba has got your back!
Make sure to check out Nimbus website to check out the rest of their work and make sure to download the full episodes on I-tunes!
En Route is Nimbus most recent work from the 09/10 season. This part from Italy is retardadly epic and filled with deep pow. A big plus for the music, my favourite song of all times!
This is a 5 min short version of the 40 min full length webisode titled" en route departure". En route departure features the skiing of: pep fujas, eric pollard, andy mahre, chris benchetler, blake nyman, dylan hood, bene mayr, ian cosco, and more.
Point and Shoot is the Nimbus blog. Here they show shoorter behind the scenes-material from their trips. Here are some good examples, some with powder others just hillarius!
