Red Bull Coldrush Viewer’s Choice Awards

Thursday, February 21st, 2008

backflip on skisThe videos are out from the Red Bull Coldrush and Red Bull is asking the viewers to vote and choose a Viewer’s Choice winner. The Viewer’s Choice winner will receive an extra $1,000 on top of any prize money already awarded at the contest.

Both the videos and voting are available over at Rip.TV.

To recap quickly, each competitor was given three hits on the slopestyle portion which took place on day one. Day two consisted of the touring and big mountain section events. Double flips, spins and huge cliffs were the name of the game ensuring the viewer some exciting coverage, tricks and of course, crashes. So go get involved in the comp by reviewing all the skier’s runs and cast your vote. There is plenty of footage available as it’s three segments, each about fifteen minutes in length.

Hunting Yeti: A New Concept in Ski Porn

Sunday, February 10th, 2008

Hunting Yeti is a new film project that’s being released from pro skiers; Pep Fujas, Andy Mahre, Eric Pollard, Eric Iberg and Chris Benchetler. It all began last year when Andy, Eric, Eric, Pep and Justin Wiegand came up with the idea to try and bring the viewer into the process of filming and getting shots for a ski movie. Last season they produced possibly one of the best ski films ever seen, Idea, which showed both the life-style of the sport and the story behind a ski film. They wanted to show more than just jump, jump, jump, perfect landings, grabs and lines. They brought something new to the viewer by producing a raw ski movie that the viewer can relate to.

The story continues this year under a new company Nimbus Independent. In association with Poor Boyz Productions, Nimbus Independent brings you Hunting Yeti, a series of six movies. The concept is to bring all of us into what they are doing and how they push the sport. They will be releasing five webisodes for free and the sixth, a summary of the other five, will be available only on DVD. The first webisode is set to be released on Feb 15 and others will follow every two months. You can check out each webisode via the company’s profile page on Rip TV.

Each of the four skiers push the sport in directions never seen before by others. Sure there are other guys out there pushing the limits and doing their part to progress the sport but, none quite like the Nimbus crew. Each member brings something unique to the project; from Pep Fujas buttering 30ft cliffs to Andy Mahre destroying back country hits switch, this is going to be the must-see film for the ‘08-’09 season. Male sure you get in on the action starting Feb 15.
