Here's The Shocking Edit That Should Leave All Skiers and Snowboarders Disturbed
Is this really how snowsports could look in the not so distant future?
If you’re one of those people who love their skis or board so much they clean them, towel dry them, shine them up and then take them to bed every night, you may want to look away now.
This short film comes from Happy United, Aero Films and Groove Guild, and as far as ski edits go, it’s a pretty heavy watch. You’ll find no giant kickers, fluffy powder pillows or epic backflips here. Only pain and brutal honesty.
This feature deals with a far more serious matter that we all choose to ignore on a regular basis, and no, it’s not that GoPro edit you made on your "back garden set up" in the summer of 2012. We’ve all seen it. It’s not that good.
Climate change is the topic of conversation here. Now – who are we kidding, after you read ‘climate change’ you almost definitely closed this browser and chucked your laptop out the window. There’s not much point in us continuing this article is there? Back to YouTube and slyly watching Game of Thrones then? Oh, you’re still here. Well done you. Very well then, let’s get on with it.
This film deals with the madness that could ensue if we continue to ignore climate change. There’s been a big lack of snow in recent seasons and nobody has really given much of a f*ck about why, they've just demanded that it returns. Here, we're asked just what could happen if we keep up that attitude.
Well, looks like it’s time to start taking climate change seriously, or else we could all end up rocking down horrible lines like these. Let’s be honest, it doesn’t look particularly fun.
