Seeking out the line that will challenge you as a mountaineer, as a skier, as an athlete. That’s why you explore, that’s why you wait all year. A film by: Fredrik Marmsater Photography LLC
From Into the Mind
Occasionally we find ourselves cut adrift from the normal and known. Drifting from one moment to the next with no anchor, and being carried by daydreams and fleeting ideas rather than a solid piece of ground to stand on. What follows is not an aimless wandering but a desire to see and experience our world wherever it may drag us to next. To that I say, Wander On.
Follow the story of the heli-skiing boom from Doug Coombs and the Tsaina Lodge in the early 1990s to the big mountain rippers of today like Todd Ligare, Griffin Post and Ralph Backstrom, who continue the pioneering spirit of skiing in Alaska.
Life Is Born (from All.I.Can) from Sherpa Cinemas
Black Diamond athlete Thomas Gaisbacher hails from Austria, where easy access to the endless terrain of the Alps has made him one of the top names in big mountain freeride skiing. Last winter, Thomas headed to the Skeena Mountains of northern British Columbia to seek untracked pow and epic pillow lines.
DownSide Up (T’es pas bien là ?). With peaks of over 4000 metres rising spectacularly from the valley floor, Chamonix is home to an unrivaled history of adventure. We join skier and mountain guide, Vivian Bruchez, as he explores his backyard on several steep adventures in a winter of exceptional snow, in the company of a few talented friends. Previously impassable and unthinkable routes become a tangible reality when skill, experience and conditions align.

Happy Winter: Being grateful makes you happier and we have so much to be grateful for, spending our time in the mountains. Trying, trying, trying and… Failing sometimes, but also reaping the rewards in different parts of the game. And more than that –enjoying every day spent among the mountains, the clouds and fresh air, its purest form. Life can be as simple as just that.

With solid Backcountry sessions, filmed in their home spot Val d’Isère and the Espace Killy, and a creative urban session in Sarajevo, the crew proves once again that their creativity and style have no limit. The Gpsy isn’t only creative on skis and behind the camera but also by their Artistic inspiration on design and the original soundtrack especially created and mixed by DJ Simsima, giving a smooth flow.
Blur the lines between dream state and reality, as you perceive the world through the minds of many. Into the Mind contemplates the experiences passed between mentors and peers to paint a philosophical portrait of human kind. What drives us to overcome challenge? How do we justify risk? What forces are at the core of a mountain addiction? Unique athlete segments over a multitude of mountain sport genres depict the connectivity of Earth, and window into never seen before moments. Explore how we begin our perception of self, construct the foundations of confidence, and are ultimately led up the path of self-actualization.
As Buddha once said, “The mind is everything. What you think you become.” Into The Mind is about becoming.
