DPS: The Shadow Campaign

DPS has put together a drool-worthy series known as “The Shadow Campaign” and we’re into it. Throughout the series, you’ll see a strong collection of the DPS athletes doing that delicate mountain dance all over the globe.

“Engelberg, Switzerland and Corralco, Chile- two divergent points on a map, connected by the ethereal snowy thread that draws us to winter.”

And now for your viewing pleasure, here’s the collection so far…


The Pehuenche people of present-day Chile speak Mapudungun: ‘the language of the land.’ This land, their universe, is known as Wallmapu. Two skiers enter, into a breathtaking creation of ancient Araucaria trees, looming volcanoes, and windblown snow.

Drawn to the mountains in search of the ski bum lifestyle, Oskar Enander had no intention of ever becoming a photographer. Today, Oskar’s iconic and unique perspective is highly sought after in the ski world. And yet, he shoots very little outside of winter. This film goes behind the lens in Oskar’s hometown of Engelberg, Switzerland to explore a life in the mountains and the influences that shape a ski photographer.


A lone skier arrives in town, only to find abysmally wet and soggy conditions. Seeking respite from the rain, he finds solace and redemption in the unlikeliest of places.
