“Claim” is a full length ski film starring Mark Abma, Shane McConkey, and Sean Pettit. McConkey is one of the legends of back country skiing. There’s a very good documentary on his life(he died in a base jumping/skiing accident) that we’re trying to source for this year’s WFF.
The team that produced “Claim” includes Helly Hansen (who make some of the very best active clothing for the most extreme conditions, including sailing and skiing–I have a bunch of their stuff for both sports), Echoboom Sports, Volkl skis, Powder Magazine, and Subaru. Matchstick Productions got producer credits. As always, support them if you get the chance because with sponsors and producers, these types of films would not be made. We are glad to give them a plug.
“Claim” was selected by the English newspaper The Telegraph as one of the 13 best ski movies all time. We’ll let you discover the origin of the title….
