G.N.A.R

  
If you haven’t seen G.N.A.R already then you are in for a real treat. The film follows a group of talented skiers who are all involved in a ridiculous game called G.N.A.R (Gaffney’s Numerical Assessment of Radness). Ski legend Shane McConkey and his friends created the game and the film celebrates his life after his tragic death by playing the game he loved. Warning! This film does have nudity and swearing! 

What the Ski Club crew says: 

Social Media Executive Peter Davies: "No questions asked, the best ski movie ever. Also I just want to say I’m the best skier of the Ski Club of Great Britain!" 

Michelle Parker – Originate

  
This series follows Michelle Parker, one of the leading female freeride skiers, pursuit of the best snow and steepest lines in the world. It shows the progression of backcountry skiing the last 20 years to now. Enjoy two seasons worth of pure wonder and how Parker has brought women’s skiing to the forefront of the sport.

What the Ski Club crew says: 

Senior Operations Executive & Chalet Manager Jasmine Hammonds: Because there aren’t many female-dominated ski movies out there!  

McConkey

  
Shane McConkey championed having fun in the mountains. This documentary shows how he changed the perception of skiing to the public and brought enjoyment back to the sport. The film depicts his best moments on film and his personal life before he tragically died. An amazing tribute to a true icon!

Head of On Snow services and Operations Owen Chapman: The greatest human to ever live! I loved it for the naked slalom and because he started G.N.A.R. 

Chalet Girl

  
If you’re looking for a light-hearted film on the slopes than look no further, Chalet Girl is the film for you. The film follows Kim, who starts off in a dead-end job to support her dad. An opportunity arises to work in one the most exclusive chalets in the Alps. This is where Kim discovers her love and talent for snowboarding. A mixture of comedy, romance and drama, a definite feel good movie.

What the Ski Club crew says: 

Operations Executive Frankie Doherty: I love the scene in the park with just the girl riders! The soundtrack is also awesome!

Supervention

  
A film with both jaw-dropping moments and Norwegian charm. Supervention is a visual delight. From backcountry to ski racing the film showcases some of the best skiers from Norway. The crew travel to remote, urban and competitive locations to promote the different styles of the sport. World Cup ski racer Aksel Lund Svindal not only shows his racing ability but also takes on some backcountry skiing too.

The journey shows the challenges they face to take on the insanely steep descent of the Biacherahi Tower.  

What the Ski Club crew says: 

Sales and Product Executive Sam Jackson: It’s a crazy expedition taking skiers to the limit of human endurance, unlike any ski film I’ve seen. Leo Taillefer is a madman!
