    For Seth Morrison, skiing is much more than a sport or job, it’s a way of life. It’s not a privilege he was born with; it’s a passion he discovered on his own. Through hard work and dedication, Morrison has become one of the best skiers in the world. The Ordinary Skier traces his journey from the middle class suburbs of Chicago to the Colorado Rockies and into the underground ski-bum subculture that would eventually become Freeskiing. This is the story of how a collection of misfits turned an elite sport upside down, and how an ordinary kid chased his dream and became one of skiing’s most iconic heroes.

    We’ve been raving about his masterful skills behind the lens. And you already see his work in the Fall 2011 Oakley Apparel Catalog. Well Blake Jorgenson was on the road again – with the Big O – capturing some of the sickest images of our riders as they ripped for an Oakley documentary on our very own Seth Morrison in Retallack, BC. His first shoot of the year had him romping around with Seth and Sean Pettit filming for “Seth Morrison – The Ordinary Skier,” coming out next fall. And as always, there were some amazing shots. But don’t take our word for it. Check out his blog for commentary from his own mouth/pen, amazing images and a killer video.
