Revverse by The Bunch at Snowpark Zermatt

Reviboys at it again

The sun couldn’t leave them alone.
The mountains surrounded them with joyful reflections of this burning globe in the sky above.
They entered the days with layers of sunscreen thick as the layers of snow.
The sunscreen got particularly smushed on the edges of their widening smiles.

Their smiles never stopped.

They reversed themselves coming into Snowpark Zermatt and did the same thing coming out.

So should you

We heard you’re cooking up something special with your ski sponsor?

I couldn’t be happier to join Revision Skis! They’re a company with very similar views as mine on the ski industry. They focus on sustainability and rider input on their skis. Their team has super unique styles and riders that I feel really fits my skiing. Keep an eye out for some new products from Revision this fall!

Rew Fonk was filmed by The Bunch in Lappland, Sweden. Skiers looking for adventure in the Arctic Circle can find:

  • Riksgränsen. 200km north of the Arctic Circle and home to the grand finale of the Scandinavian Freeride Championships. A great area for backcountry skiing and close to the border with Norway. Riksgränsen is also known for its heli-skiing.
  • Björkliden. A family-friendly resort with groomed, above treeline skiing and no waiting in line back at the lift. Accessible from the same train that runs to Riksgränsen.
  • Dundret. Also accessible by rail, Dundret offers a long skiing season (October – May) and a variety of terrain. Hook up with a local and beg for a tour of the backcountry.
  • Storklinten. Another great family-friendly resort which is also close to the coast for other great sight-seeing. All runs end up back at the center of the resort.

The Bunch Finito

Our friends at The Bunch recently released the third installment of their movie series, Finito.  We are proud to have supported the guys along their journey last season as they worked really hard to make this all come together.  Watch Revisionairies Tobias Sedlacek, Leo Bjorklund, Douglas Kallsbo, Erik Pousette, Sakarias Majander, and Jen’s Nilson in this instant classic ski film.  The Bunch Finito was put together over the course of 14 months, while traveling Sweden, Norway, France, Russia, and North America. To read more about The Bunch Finito, check out the following articles below.

The Bunch Finito Media Coverage:

The Bunch’s skiers are totally out of this world. They move in a world of art and of weirdness, a world of freedom without compromises, without any desire to join the “normal” one or to water down their own to make it accessible to us. -Downdays

Known for their creativity, positive vibes, and commitment to the crew, the collective shot footage in Sweden, Norway, Russia, France, and the U.S. for the free, feature-length film. Whether hitting rails in a grimy urban setting or hitting natural features in stunning, high-alpine settings, The Bunch can find their flow just about anywhere. And though they take their filming and editing seriously, they certainly haven’t forgotten what it’s all about—evident in goofy group shots, wild editing choices, and general shenaniganizing. -Powder Magazine

 

Fully Legal

A lot goes on in a typical day besides skiing. Even if you are an all-star, and ski first chair to last chair, skiing only can occupy about a third of your day (at least that’s how much it is at Keystone where the majority of the Fully Legal video was filmed). The other two thirds of our days as skiers are consumed by sleep and consumption of varying forms.

During our time in Colorado we stayed in Frisco. Anywhere from ten to 15 of us crammed into a two-bedroom condo that had 5 beds, claimed to sleep 7 and if you were inventive it could handle 10. This left a few bodies on the floor from time to time and myself outside on the deck in a pair of sleeping bags.

Evenings were filled with family dinners that took hours to prepare due to the size of the kitchen. More than one chef was too many for that space, but we made it work and we managed to eat most nights. Somewhere in this timeframe a groggy exclamation of “Poyben?!” would surface. This was our quasi-swedish-english way of asking if we should watch another Harry Potter movie. If enough residents agreed we would pick up where we left off, if not then we defaulted to South Park or The Office until we all passed out.

Mornings were slow. Really slow. Jens would be up at 6AM to continue editing Finito, but otherwise no one else had a schedule to worry about. Breakfast was optional. Skiing was considered but usually delayed by the drying of mittens and charging of batteries. Somehow we would pull it together, organize a dozen or so people and load up a few vehicles to take off towards the mountain. This video, Fully Legal, is about what happened next.

Video: Spencer Milbocker Park City Laps

Spencer Milbocker Park City Laps

A week ago, Mike Kvackay traveled from Denver to Salt Lake City to film with Spencer Milbocker. Spencer and Mike made the quick trip from Salt Lake City to Park City to film laps on their early season park setup. They filmed for just under 4 hours the first day and knocked out quite a few tricks. After snowing about 8 inches in Salt Lake City that night, they drove back up to Park City in the morning to find fresh snow at the resort. Spencer and Mike decided to get a few more park shots before putting the camera down to enjoy the fresh snow while exploring the rest of the mountain. It was a fun and productive two days.

New to the team: Spencer Milbocker edit

Revision welcomes Spencer Milbocker to the family. Read more about the news on Newschoolers.

Spencer Milbocker

One look at the video above shows you the diversity of Spencer’s abilities.

Milbocker grew up shredding urban and the small hills in southwest Michigan before taking it out west. He’s been sponsored by big brands for a number of years and has been featured in a number of mainstream ski films. We’re stoked to bring him onto the Revision team.

Though he spends a lot of time across the country, Spencer still has fun at his small home hill (Bittersweet, in Southwest Michigan) when he’s back home, hot lapping 5 minute lift rides and hitting 10-15 features on the quick way back down. Spencer spent last year (2014/2015) getting back in the saddle after recovering from a knee injury that ended his 2013/2014 season. He’s going to be a key fixture in an upcoming film that Revision is working on this coming winter. Keep an eye out.

Note:

Revision Skis recommends that you take your skis and the mounting guide to a professional ski shop to have your bindings installed. This is the best way to be sure that your bindings will be properly mounted. Your local shop should have the jigs and the know how to do the job right. Remember that all binding placements should be measured from the tail of the ski to the boot center location that you want.

Of course, there are a lot of resources online that explain how to mount your bindings yourself if you want to give it a try. This might be an option if you know that your shop doesn’t have a lot of attention to detail and you are somewhat handy. In this case (besides finding a better shop), it would be worth your time to think about buying the manufacturer’s jig. Better yet, buy the same pair of bindings as a buddy or two and go in on the jig together.
