Sandra Lahnsteiner, professional freeskier from austria, explains how to do a proper face check before a freeride contest or filming session.
freerider Lorraine Huber has a special new edit out, here are the description and movie for you:
A ski film unlike any other from Hanno Mackowitz, starring Lorraine Huber
Deep snow, untracked slopes, classical music and a gifted skier. With his film ‘Lorraine’, Austrian film maker Hanno Mackowitz gives us something which in today’s society is increasingly speeding up and running away from us: time. Time to become consciously aware of the breathtaking scenery of snowcapped mountains, to discover details and the precision of a skier’s turn, and time to breathe. Nothing distracts the eye from the aesthetics of the images and dynamics of the snow, or the loneliness and devotion of the freerider Lorraine Huber. Not a single word.
Starring: Lorraine Huber
Produced by: Hanno Mackowitz
Sound design: Marcus Loeber
Animation: Daniel Wolf
Filmed in Zürs and Stuben am Arlberg, 2013
All lines were hiked from the ski resort under our own steam, without the use of helicopters. It is recommended to watch this film in HD.
