Welcome to the next step in the evolution of ski videos: a movie that combines action skiing from the top level of the sport, with an in-depth look at the lives of these people who are totally devoted to the sport. The Sublimation Experiment (TSE) will speak to anyone who is passionate about skiing/ snowboarding, the lifestyle, and concerned about the future of mountain communities and pristine backcoutry locales. Through snowboarding, telemarking and skiing in competitions to chairlift and snowmobile accessed backcountry, to human powered multi day expeditions and ski mountaineering, these athletes showcase their skills, while uncovering their obligations to the environment. TSE will be set to a backdrop of stunning cinematography, in remote and unique backcountry settings with an original soundtrack, inspired by the film. The winter community is ready for movies that appeal to the viewer on a level other then just adrenaline.
