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.

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.

Finito Street Skiing Moscow, Russia with The Bunch

Street Skiing Moscow

Hello, Tobias Sedlacek here. On the 14th of January, parts of The Bunch crew, including myself drove to Moscow, Russia from Sweden. After driving for two days, we were there. The snow wasn’t that much, but there were spots everywhere. With a crew of 7 skiers including filmer Ante Olofsson we were street skiing Moscow for almost two weeks filming for our upcomming movie “Finito”.

We met up with the LSM crew who showed us the way around Moscow, helped us finding spots and showed us some great Russian hospitality. One day we went out to hit a skatepark with the LSM boys but ended up not being able to get through security who guarded the park, if we tried apparently they were going to call the police on us. Instead we headed to another park where we ended up riding in front of the biggest audience we’ve had in the streets, probably around 30 people. Maybe because one of the Russian homies told them our movie would be in the Cinema, but most likely because they aren’t used on seeing people ski street there.

We went to a city an hour away from Moscow called Podolsk. Podolsk is an old industrial city and during the Soviet times it was one of the biggest industrial giants in the Moscow oblast, which is the name of region around Moscow. These days, it’s a worn out city with landmarks from the war times. One of the marks is a big abbandon dam, that never got finnished building and nowadays instead houses graffiti artists.

A game changer for us this year is our winch a.k.a Leonardo Da Winch. A friend of ours built it this fall out of a go-cart engine and it’s pretty darn fast. Unfortunately, Leonardo was struggling a bit with us but overall he helped us out alot. We wouldn’t have been able to hit most of the spots we did without him.

We also went touristing and got to see the famous “Red Square” where the Vasilj Cathedral also is located. The churches and cathedrals in Russia is so sick, having these round shaped roofs with different colours on them. Very nice!

K-Lab Freeski Store Russia

We got invited to the K-Lab store, only freeski store in Russia to come hang and drink beers with them. Arriving to the spot, our second film “Finess” was showing. We signed a group photo they took of us and had a great time

After two weeks, we headed home. Street skiing Moscow, Russia was a great experience and shattered most of the prejudices I’ve had. Everyone treated us great, and wanted to show Moscow in it’s best way. Thanks to everyone, but mostly to Alex of LSM for being a great guide for our trip!

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.

Catskiing Canada

After a few months of somewhat hit or miss conditions here in the states, we were ready to go catskiing in Canada. The Trimmings crew along with the Revision Skis crew packed up and rallied north to go to the Canadian promise land. As we pulled up to the lodge at Fernie Wilderness Adventures (FWA), the snow had been hammering down all afternoon and we knew instantly that we would not be disappointed. Located in the northern Rockies, Fernie Wilderness Adventures’ catskiing Canada paradise has over 5,000 acres of gladed meadows, pristine pillow fields, and endless tree skiing. Serviced by two large passenger snowcats, and a handful of the happiest employees I’ve ever met, we knew we were in the right place. After day one, the common phrase repeated by everyone on the trip became, “I’ve never experienced that before!” Whether we were describing the bottomless powder, the amazing terrain, or the guides who couldn’t have been more accommodating, FWA had literally everything we could have asked for. Each day began with a delicious hot breakfast cooked by the staff before we piled into the snowcat and headed straight up to 7000 ft. Our options seemed endless plowing up and over knife ridges through blower pow as we hung our heads out the cab windows in anticipation of our next run choked with the lightest snow any of us have ever experienced. Each day was concluded with countless high-fives, a huge feast, and a soak in the wood-fired hot tub complimented by a few ice cold beers. After four days of living the life of luxury, reluctantly, it was time to part ways and return to our own lives. It goes without saying that we will, without a doubt, be returning next season to pick up where we left off! Thanks again to the entire staff at FWA for showing us the goods! Words by Jake Fagrelius.
