Level 1’s Pleasure


It feels good. Slamming into concrete walls, risking the backcountry unknown, being broke on the road… Some would call it hedonistic behavior, we call it living the dream, and this cast of characters delivers a vibrant depiction of this so-called sport of skiing. With a local tourist mentality, the simple joys are found near and far. From India, Switzerland and Japan, to British Columbia, Washington DC, and Alaska, it’s business in the front, party in the back, and no one is phoning it in. Level 1 continues to surprise with another must watch ski film in a lineage of classics, for your viewing PLEASURE

Will Wesson, Sami Ortlieb, Khai Krepela, LJ Strenio, Rob Heule, Pär Peyben Hägglund, Garrett Russell and friends.

(Pleasure) should be considered mandatory viewing this season for all ski movie fans. Combing artistry, athleticism, creativity, and a thoughtful theme carried throughout, it’s as tight and as entertaining as a ski film can get. But it’s also propped up with no ego; just having fun and skiing with your friends. Though it’s a simple concept that’s difficult to translate to film, Berman and fellow producers Freedle Coty and Jonny Durst succeed in spades.” – Matt Hansen, Powder Magazine

It seems year after year Level 1 steps up their films and Pleasure is no exception. This film is pure good times with great skiers filmed in unique locations. I’ve rewatched the film five times.”  – Mike Rogge, Outside Online

Damn, it’s a beautiful example of ski filmmaking. I was really impressed last year by the quality of Small World’s production and Level 1 have taken another step up here.” – Adam Spensley, Newschoolers.com

We really didn’t know the film would be this awesome, this unique, this crowd-pleasing.” – Freeskier Magazine

The Ever Animated Sämi Ortlieb

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.


WATCH: Birds


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 >>
