Song: "Sonata Rabidus"
Artist: Modus Operandi
Album: Higher Shapes
Making a ski movie is a constant battle of conditions, terrain and travel. Our season began by driving all over the country chasing down handrails, as it continued, "global warming" and inconsistent snowfall patterns became our biggest obstacle. This made us quickly learn that we had to be on-call, ready to be anyplace at any time. From greasing handrails in New York to perfect conditions in Alaska, our crew was there at a moments notice. Often it meant waking up at 6 am and digging for hours, building a jump that wouldn't be hit until the following day. Or being stuck in AK for days on end watching the snow fall, anticipating the moment it clears. Then only to negotiate slides, lines, and exposures that challenged even our most seasoned riders. In the end we were rewarded with the most technical urban, progressive backcountry, and big mountain lines that has redefined skiing to us. Enjoy.
Poor Boyz - Yeah Dude Ski Video
Teaser for Yeah Dude Ski Movie by Poor Boyz
Song 1: "Extreme Ways"
Song 2: "Hip Hop Beat 066"
If you’re a Poor Boyz fan, you’ve probably noticed PBP’s movies follow a formula: The world’s best riders + sick locations + sick action – filler = the best ski movie of the year. PBP’s 2007 release Yeah Dude follows the Poor Boyz tradition of scintillating action, sending crews to all points of the globe to capture the year’s best skiing. But when it came time to assemble the pieces, PBP started expanding its repertoire. Once the snow melted, many of Yeah Dude’s athletes and crew members visited the Poor Boyz studios to give candid accounts of their seasons. The result is a much more intimate portrait of the Poor Boyz crew than you’re used to, but without any consequent lulls in the action. Yeah Dude gives you all the skiing action you expect from PBP. But Yeah Dude is unlike any ski movie you’ve seen before.
Starring: Sammy Carlson, Andreas Håtveit, Peter Olenick, Chris Benchetler, Simon Dumont, Julien Regnier, JP Auclair, Tim Russell, John Spriggs, Craig Coker, John Symms, JF Cusson, Anthony Boronowski, Mike Henitiuk, Tim Durtschi, Matt Walker
