March 10th, 2011 - Posted by in Ski Artists & Designers

Last spring we climbed a mountain, sat legendary skier Eric Pollard on a rock and pointed a camera at him and said go. See into the mind of a skier who has revolutionized the equipment we use as well as the way we watch ski videos. Listen in on Eric Pollard’s point-of-view.

Part 1 – Nimbus Independent – Eric explains his reasoning for straying from the norm of a professional skier’s filming habits and they ways it’s been presented.

Part 2 – Skiing Style & Technology – EP talks about how far skiing has come from long, straight skis that plow through powder to the smooth fluid motions of backcountry freestyle skiing of today. To see the latest skis from Eric Pollard, check out the EP Pro, Sir Francis Bacon and EP Pro Shorty

Nimbus’ Thank You

January 5th, 2011 - Posted by in LINE Skis News

We should be saying thank YOU Eric Pollard and the rest of the Nimbus crew. Eric Pollard has been an innovator from the beginning, in front of and behind the camera (as well as the editing computer). Enjoy the new En Route movie!

Thank You from NIMBUS INDEPENDENT on Vimeo.

Thank You is exactly what the title states; a thank you to everyone who watches Nimbus.

Thank You begins by interviewing individuals from every walk of life about how they predict the winter. The movie then recaps the best of the last three years of Nimbus. Enjoy!

Nimbus Independent was started in 2007 by Eric Pollard in collaboration with Pep Fujas, Andy Mahre, and Chris Bencheter. The four like minded skiers began Nimbus to bring a different perspective to the world of ski movies.

ESPNs THINKERS: Eric Pollard

September 1st, 2010 - Posted by jonfewster in LINE Skis News

It goes without saying that Eric Pollard is one of the most influential skiers out there and has been for almost a decade. Pollard is set apart from most not only with his effortless style, but also with his artistic and development talent. Whether it be pushing the industry with his ski shapes and profiles, his incredibly detailed pieces of art (that are on top of our skis), or the insanely beautiful and fun videos that Nimbus comes out with to entertain the masses, saying Eric Pollard is influential in the ski industry would be an understatement.

It’s just good to see him get the credit he deserves. Check out Pollard being highlighted in ESPN’s Thinkers Series.

When he’s not painting or filming or being otherwise artistic, Eric Pollard, 27, is a pro skier. In 2007, Pollard joined up with Andy Mahre, Pep Fujas, Chris Benchetler and Eric Iberg to form Nimbus Independent, a film company with the goal of creating ski footage unlike any produced before. Now Nimbus releases a series of films throughout the season on their website. The next episode, part of a collection of trip-based films called “En Route,” drops September 15. We spoke to Pollard about working for free, fine art and what inspires his ideas.

A man and his snowmobile: Eric Pollard wearing the Dakine pack he designed.

When we first started Nimbus, we wanted to do something completely new. I said, ‘Let’s stop talking about it, let’s do it.’ We’ve tried out many different formats. We’ve done DVD, we’ve tried to sell it online, we’ve given it away. We’re constantly fine tuning. Our goal is to entertain and share our perspective on skiing in a package that’s consumable for people.

I don’t actually get paid from Nimbus. As a business, it’s not successful. It’s been a lot more work than I anticipated — it’s almost a full-time job. But it’s worth it. I wouldn’t say I do it for the love. I do it because I like to control how we’re being portrayed. I like treating each movie like an art piece.
