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.

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.

About Klappen

Kimbo Sessions Klappen Sweden

Klappen, home to the Kimbo Sessions, is approximately 390 miles from Sweden’s capital Stockholm and located in the region of Vaesterbotten. Vaesterbotten’s capital city of Umea is around 78 miles away from Klappen. Klappen is located in Salen, which is one of the biggest ski areas in Sweden. The Salen ski resort is made up of the following ski areas: Stoten, Hundfjallet, Tandadalen, Hogfjallet, Lindvallen, and Klappen. The elevation at the summit is 2,181 feet and base is at an elevation of 1,148 feet.  This makes for a vertical drop of 1,0033 feet at Klappen. There are 35 ski runs, with the longest spanning 2 miles. Nearly half of the runs are beginner ski runs, with the remaining ski runs being split up by intermediate, advanced, and expert.  For park skiers, there are 4 terrain parks to choose from. Klappen has been open for over 30 years and the ski season usually runs from approximately December through April.

Klappen ski resort has purchased a state of the art gondola, which is the ski resort’s largest investment in it’s history. The opening ceremony will be held in December 2016. The gondola cars will start at the welcome center, with an intermediate station at Tranantorget, and a final station at the top of the mountain. Each gondola can accommodate ten guests comfortably and features heated seats to keep skiers warm on cold days.

Klappen is also a popular recreation destination in the summertime.  Popular activities include hiking, canoeing, fishing, golfing, and horseback riding. Wildlife viewing with an experienced guide is also a popular activity and a great way to discover the local flora, fauna, elk, beavers, and more. The Vasterdalalven river runs through the region and is home to excellent salmon, char, and rainbow trout fishing.

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.
