Joining some of the best freeskiers in Europe, filmmaker Nick Meilleur travelled across Finland, Norway, Austria and Switzerland in January and February of 2020 with the goal of making a story-based freestyle ski film.
Despite some underwhelming snow conditions across Europe, we were able to cook up some really fun days thanks to our solid crew of skiers. Joona Kangas showed us around his hometown resort of Levi, Finland in the Arctic Circle. Jacob Hyllengren Larsson gave us a look into the ski scene within the city of Oslo, Norway. Torge Nagel and Lucas Mangold showed us around the seemingly endless different ski resorts surrounding Innsbruck, Austria. Last but not least Kai Mahler introduced us to the freestyle heaven known as Laax, Switzerland.
