Last winter we went to Canada - BC together with Whiteout Pictures and filmed with our friends Henrik Windstedt, Dave Treadway and Matilda Rapaport. This visually unique edit is the outcome of the trip. In the 4 min edit we go on a visual journey into the heart of the powder skiing that you find in the area around Nelson. The team worked hard on making sure that the images would stand out from the crowd and feel innovative. To accomplish this they hauled a lot of gear out in the back country such as heavy lifting drones, gyro stabilizing gimbals and more in order to get the creative angles of the action. The result is truly awesome and really makes you want to get out there and ski. Right now.
Whiteout Pictures’s PERSPECTIVE became one of Peak Performance friend Matilda Rapaport´s last production before the tragic accident that cost her life during the summer of 2016. Matilda was a beloved part of the crew that worked together on several projects and is honored with a tribute ending. #inspirelikematilda

“You should have seen the amount of gear that we brought up the mountain, felt like were making Interstellar 2. Most of it isn't made for this type of environment either. Really impressive that it works. The reward when you see the final edit makes it all worth the effort though. Fun working with these creative guys using McGuiver solutions that is totally out of the box.”

“Some of these shots was the kind of stuff we’ve been dreaming of capturing for a long time. It really pushed us and the equipment to the max. So proud of the team effort put into making this project happen.”
[Anders Gustavsson, Athlete Manager Peak Performance]
“It´s very emotional seeing Matilda in this edit. She was a great skier and even greater person. We really want to show what a fantastic skier she was with this edit and she will always be a big part of our crew.”
