KKMTV – EPISODE 5
Norwegian Karl Kristian Muggerud returns with his 5th episode in his series, KKMTV! Watch & enjoy!
Swiss MC Sämi Ortlieb recently sat down to talk shop with Downdays’ David Malacrida, dishing on all things skiing related in his life. Check out an excerpt below.
Sämi Ortlieb is a highly original shredder from Switzerland. In contrast to the technical masters and park rats of the Swiss Freeski Team, Sämi charts his own course between the park and the backcountry. This season he is the breakout star of Level 1 Productions’ Small World, so we snagged him for a quick chat at the High Five Festival.
Hey Sämi, what are you doing at High Five?
I’m trying to get rid of my hangover and watch some movies, and will present the Level 1 movie tonight.
Is this the first time you’ve filmed with Level 1?
Yes, it’s my first time. I’ve skied with Will [Wesson] a lot, and at some point we were thinking I should join him for a Level 1 trip. I was supposed to go to Japan but that didn’t happen, and then Freedle, one of the filmers, came to Switzerland, and that was fucking amazing. Freedle is the man. He is the most fun guy to film with, maybe not the most productive guy because he’s kind of slow sometimes. READ MORE >>

“After the Sky Falls” – Watch the Trailer!
“After The Sky Falls” captures the skiing of Eric Pollard, Chris Benchetler and Pep Fujas. Two years in the making, the film is not an epic portrayal of the sport, but instead is an attempt to relate to and inspire everyday skiers. This motion picture is not a dramatic narrative piece, it’s not a energy drink commercial, it’s not meant to make the skiers in the film into heros, it is simply a film that documents the Nimbus crew’s unique approach to skiing, and their focus on fun and creativity.

LINE SKIS & NWAC make for More Funner, More Safer Backcountry Experience
NWAC season kickoff event to be held Saturday, Oct. 10, 2015 at evo
Seattle, Wash. (Sept. 30, 2015) – Line, makers of innovative, athlete-driven skis, is proud to announce its partnership with the Northwest Avalanche Center (NWAC). As part of the partnership Line will provide ski equipment for NWAC field staff and help promote the dissemination of avalanche information and education including Snowbash, a season kickoff party held on Saturday, Oct. 10, 2015 at evo in Seattle, Washington.
“Now that Line has officially entered the backcountry ski market we want to support those individuals who work hard to inform the public about backcountry avalanche conditions,” said Line Global Brand Director Josh Malczyk, “Of course the gear people use to enjoy the backcountry is important, but nothing is more important than checking the avalanche forecast on a regular basis so travel can be as safe as possible.”
The new Line Sick Day Tourist ski, Snake Skins and Pollard Paint Brush adjustable length ski pole were chosen by NWAC for their lightweight, durability and exceptional downhill performance. It will allow the NWAC team to climb, traverse and descend easily and efficiently when performing regular avalanche assessments.
“Line’s new backcountry ski gear will help our team travel efficiently in and around avalanche terrain this winter while we evaluate the snowpack,” said NWAC Program Director Scott Schell. “Having Line’s support getting the word out about avalanche conditions for backcountry users will also be a huge step in the right direction to create more awareness of backcountry dangers.”
Join the NWAC and Line for Snowbash at evo Seattle Saturday, Oct. 10, 2015 from 5pm-10pm. Attendees will have the chance to win some new gear from Line, enjoy food from Peach & the Pig food truck, beer from Pyramid, Fremont, and Aslan Brewing and live music from DJ OCNotes. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Northwest Avalanche Center.

As we’re introduced in the first episode, the question is asked, “Who is Garrett Russell?”
Who is Garrett Russell is not as accurate or thought provoking a question as what is Garrett Russell? Garrett “G-Funk” Russell is an artist, an impressionist, a warrior poet in the narrative of skiing. Within that storyline he stands out as its most captivating character and most inspired creative director. He is both the ink on the page and the writer. He accentuates his passage through the lines with fresh, inventive technique and style. Each turn and diverse movement is filled with his life’s experience.
His memoirs are written on the faces of the Andes, the Sierras, the San Juans, through countless pillows of white. The epitaphs for his memories are inscribed in the smoky trundles of snow that ribbon off his shoulders as he cuts and smears. The moment is king and Garrett combines his inner vision with the contours of reality. He accentuates this blend through integrated creative impulse within every movement, carving contrast in the conventional without alienating his audience. His skiing is relatable and tangible. It is art at its highest form, with the deepest meaning, and the utmost accessibility. GFunk is a DIY Picasso. His composition is within the audience’s grasp, explicating the elements of the human experience through inspired movement and inspiring methodology. In Bro-ese it is described as “steeze,” in laymen’s terms, “style.” But honestly, it is best described as The Garrett Russell Experience. As Garrett says, “How the body moves in time and motion is art. I like to use skis as a motion of art.”
Wordy? Yes, but as you’ll see – a perfect explanation of what you’re about to watch. Enjoy!
