I already heard a lot about wired urban sports, I mean there are people playing Capture the Flag in Berlin, some use their bikes to play polo and others run burning through the city, but I never saw someone freestyle skiing in an urban environment.
Maybe that’s because we don’t have snow that often here in Berlin or – and that’s what I prefer as a good reason – pro-skier JP Auclair is really killing it! His piste is the City of Trail, a smaller village in British Columbia!
Including powerful pictures, JP Auclair shows in that short part of the award-winning 70 min film All.I.Can., which is a stunning exploratory essay that compares the challenges of big mountain skiing to the challenges of global climate change, what urban freestyle skiing is all about.
Now relax, watch the video and be impressed!
