This coming winter season marks the debut of Black Diamond’s Ski Here Now, a three-part webisode that takes a Zen look at skiing in the big mountains of Europe, featuring Black Diamond skiers in France and Switzerland. The Ski Here Now webisodes will be released in November, December and January exclusively in the Black Diamond Journal.
Black Diamond skier Ptor Spricenieks teamed up with fellow La Grave locals Guillaume Le Guillou and Sylvain Berry (a.k.a GNS Prodz, which did all the filming and editing) to create Ski Here Now, and serves as the series’ host. The series kicks off in La Grave where the Telepherique and Black Diamond are official partners. Martin Webrant and David Pitschmann are the featured BD riders in Episode #1 and arrive at the perfect time for sweet conditions. Episode #2 is a ski adventure in Zermatt with alpinist, shredder of steeps and Zermatt-local, Samuel Anthamatten. In Episode #3, Ptor meets up with BD riders Tor Eggeboe and Nicolas Aubert, and they go exploring the remote valleys and dramatic lines of the little known Parc National des Ecrins just behind La Grave.
Ski Here Now is an aesthetic high-definition foray into what it’s all about for passionate skiers. Be sure to watch all three episodes in the Black Diamond Journal, starting this November.
