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

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.

Revision Skis Company Callout

We recently had a chance to talk with David Malacrida from Downdays about how we got started and where we are going.  Here is a brief excerpt from the Revision Skis Company Callout article:

 

Revision’s give-and-take with its team riders has already borne fruit with several initiatives the company is undertaking this season. Foremost among them is a focus on sustainability “We are auditing our supply chain process in order to minimize our environmental impact,” Wanrooy says. “Our skis for fall 2015 will all be carbon neutral as we begin a long-term process of making sure we are responsible to the earth.”

Another much-hyped development is Revision’s new return & replace policy, which includes damage caused by sliding rails. “We will guarantee that we will replace any skis that are rendered unrideable because of rail damage during the one-year warranty period,” says the company.

Finally, Revision is constantly seeking to refine the durability of its products, so you’ll hopefully never need to take advantage of the replacement clause. “For this fall, we’ll be upgrading the bases and edges on all of our skis to a thicker version in order to improve durability,” says Wanrooy.

Advance Ski Movie

While filming the Advance ski movie, we spent the last season chasing snow with friends in both the backcountry and the streets. We had some deep days cat skiing with our friends at Fernie Wilderness Adventures, where the snow always seems to hit for us.  Our time at Grand Targhee was great as well, but we weren’t as lucky on the weather. Other legs of the trip while filming included street skiing in Sweden and Russia, along with a bunch of other great spots across the Western states. Hit play, sit back, and enjoy the Advance ski movie, featuring skiers Mike King, Sandy Boville, Chris McKeever, Tobias Sedlacek, Erik Pousette, Sakarias Majander, Leo Bjorklund, Douglas Kallsbo, Ian Hamilton, Danny Arnold, Sam Zahner, Jake Fagrelius, and Tanner Berg. We hope you enjoy watching ‘Advance’ as much as we did filming it.

Lappland by The Bunch

Lappland by The Bunch

“Lappland by The Bunch” is the first video from the Swedish Revision Skis crew, including five Revisionaries who all are brothers of The Bunch. Lappland is the name of the northern region of Sweden where this video was filmed, which is also known as “The last wilderness of Europe”.

Our trip to Lappland was calming and a great change of pace as we were able to absorb this peaceful, natural location. We hope you enjoy this video full of speed variations accompanied by music reflecting the experience of the wilderness seen through the eyes of our riders. Expect the unexpected and keep an open mind. Take your time while watching this video, and you’ll get to re-live the Northern wilderness in a dreamy way.

Featuring riders Leo Björklund, Sakarias Majander, Erik Pousette, Douglas Källsbo, and Tobias Sedlacek.

About Lappland

Lappland is a vast, magical, ever-changing place where it can go from -40 C in the winter to +30 C in the summer. Considered Europe’s last wilderness and home to Europe’s only indigenous people, the Sami, this is the land of eight seasons.  A place where you can also experience both the Northern Lights and the Midnight Sun. Swedish Lapland is filled with vast forests of pine and spruce, powerful rivers that provide drainage from the snow-covered fells and peaceful lakeside villages that are found among the hills. One quarter of Sweden’s surface area is located in Lappland. While it covers a vary larger portion of surface area, it is still a far trek to reach the region for many of Sweden’s citizens. The appeal of experiencing pure nature first hand is what draws visitors to make the sometimes long trip to this vast and sparsely populated region of Sweden.
