Spring time means kicker time as riders and film crews scramble to get the final shots for their upcoming movies before the editing process can start in earnest. Europe’s glaciers are prime spots for this activity – high altitude, guaranteed snow and some extremely co-operative mountain crews mean that everybody wins. Sölden in the Ötztal valley, Austria is one such place
‘Most of you know what it means when some of the best international and national snowboard crews rush to the Ötztal valley at the end of the season. Billy & Ethan Morgan, Werni Stock, Simon Gruber, Sami Luthanen, Kalle Ohlsen, but also Austrian hot shots such as Flo Galler, Ali Lindmoser, – they all brought along their shred buddies, and they all were there for one cause: to bring the big jump on the Tiefenbach glacier to the big screens for their new movies which will be released this fall. We provide you with a first sneak preview of what you can expect to hit you this fall and a selection of exquisite ‘behind the scenes’ pics from the shoot. Enjoy!
