Hunting Yeti Film Tour


What is it about skiing? The Nimbus Independent crew tries to answer that question with the new release, “HUNTING YETI.” This film showcases skiing that is more fun and enjoyable for everyone, more about fluidity and style than amplitude or quantity of rotations, it breaks from the norm of pro athletes hitting jump after jump with a couple contrived lifestyle segments, to producing a project that communicates what ski culture is and the community it creates.

HUNTING YETI” searches for the piece of mind and serenity that being in nature, the mountains and with your friends provides from the crazy, fast paced world. Follow the Nimbus Crew on their season long road trip, riding with like minded skiers and snowboarders, whether sponsored or not. From never ending pillow lines to epic sled missions in the backcountry, witness what it takes to make it happen. Not just the high fives and big smiles, but also relentless traveling, flat tires, broken sleds, fast food, early mornings and injuries.

HUNTING YETI” was shot in high-definition and features the sliding abilities of: Pep Fujas, Eric Pollard, Chris Benchetler, Ike Smith, Andy Mahre, and their friends. Throughout the season, the Nimbus crew met up and rode with: Dylan Hood, Bryce Phillips, Erin Valverde-Pollard, Sammy Carlson, Shin Campos, Garrett Russell, Griffin Cummings, Josh Frazier, Christian Sirianni and Tommy Ellingson.

The world premiere has already taken place, down under, at Mt. Buller
