This year Legs of Steel have thrown the rule book out the window, forgotten about the demands of sponsors and created a ski movie purely for themselves. In other words, as the crew have more eloquently put it, they’ve gone ‘back to their roots’.
Their new movie ‘The LOSt’ sets out to create a visual masterpiece in tune with what it means to be a part of Legs of Steel, and if the trailer is anything to go by, after watching this I think you’d be hard pushed to find anyone who wouldn’t want to be part of this super crew.
Being creative and taking your own path in skiing is one that rings very true with Legs of Steel, so it is an honour to have worked and filmed this year with such a close-knit and handpicked team of riders. This is something that the crew will always strive to have at the heart of the project, and continuing to work with an increasing network of talented friends who you are just as likely to be having a beer with at the house in Innsbruck as you are trusting with your life on some crazy line or feature will always be a priority. This year, along with the regular posse of Bene Mayr, Thomas Hlawiscthka, Paddy Graham, Tobi Reindl and Sven Kueenle, come on an adventurous and anarchic voyage to streets of the Ukrainian capital Kiev with Max Hill, Lolo Favre, Frej Jönsson and Antii Ollila. See what shredding Europe’s finest backcountry terrain in Davos and Arlberg throws up with the likes of Tobi Tritscher, Tom Leitner and Oscar Scherlin, then venture to British Columbia…firstly with some special ‘old boys’ and then on the hunt for deeper snow and bigger lines. Undoubtedly, if Legs of Steel was a Rock Band then The LOSt comes in the tradition of a self-titled album release…an act of elegant simplicity that epitomises the alliance and style of the crew.
A ski film directed by Andre Nutini and Daniel Trenkle. Filmed by Andre Nutini, Dani Trenkle and David Peacock. Aerial Cinematography by Followcopter. Produced by Legs of Steel.
