The Winter Film Festival: Skiing The Trees

One of holy grails of skiing is skiing the trees. It’s right up there with deep powder, helicopter skiing, and skiing the backside of the mountain. The attraction is a combination of danger and exhilaration: get it right and it’s one of the best experiences you’ll ever have on skis. Get it wrong and you’re out of here or waded up like a ball of used tin foil..either way, not good.
So the mandate is simple: get it right. Train so you’re strong enough. Work on your technique so you’re bulletproof competent. And go with a guide or someone who is massively experienced. It’s one thing to take chances and another to disregard the dangers inherent in the experience.
Do it right. To get you acclimated, here’s a nice short video from Ski School that you will enjoy. The team at Ski School has produced a very nice, high def series of videos; we’ll be featuring more as we go deeper into the WFF.
See you at the bottom.
