Are you still dreaming of snowy peaks, steep mountains, deep powder fields and perfect bluebird days on the slopes? Ski season is over but that won't stop us from dreaming about clicking into our skis again. Below we have gathered 5 of the most classic ski movies ever made. Each one of them are unique in their own way and a great watch while practising social distancing!

The Art of Flight

This movie became a classic, long before it was released. For two years Travis Rice worked on this project and once it was ready in 2011 this snowboard movie was something else. The level of production and filming had never been seen and is still amongst the best.

The Godfather of skiing. Shane McConkey has pushed the limits further and innovated more than any other skier. If you like your fat, rocker powder skis with 5-point cut, you can thank Shane for that. This is a documentary about Shane and his life and a must see for all skiers out there!

Few Words

No skier makes steep mountains and big cliffs look as easy as Candide Thovex. This film is half epic ski shots and half art. A beautiful piece of ski film all designed by Candide Thovex.

Advertised as The Greatest Ski Movie ever, and we know many skiers out there who would still agree with that claim. Made by MSP, one of the original and still going strong ski movie producers, featuring good old heroes like Mark Abma, Jon Olsson, Simon Dumont, Sean Pettit and many more.

G.N.A.R - The Movie

Gaffney’s Numerical Assessment of Radness. G.N.A.R. is a point system to determine who is the best skier on the mountain. Shot in Squallywood almost 10 years ago, this classic ski movie perfectly captures how to have fun on a mountain. Created by Shane McConkey (obviously) you can expect rowdy skiing, cliff hucking, nakedness and a good old time.
