The fifth edition, entitled “the Medicine,” has our two shredders romping through Switzerland, Sweden, Norway, Utah and Colorado – unveiling urban tranny’s and spots that have been mostly untouched by the skiing world to express their creativity. With the possibility of free skiing at the Olympics looming, the crew sees this as a “movement, inspired, as a cure to skiing’s future in it’s purest form…that may change a lot of the perception and clientele that will be brought upon the sport.”
