The front range warriors of Colorado have sent the internet into chaos with the release of their second film of 2021, ‘Wildcard’. What you’re about to see here is a compilation of good times in the backcountry with friends that fate has brought together. Along with the usual crew of Benny Smith, Parker Norvell, and Levi Ascher, this little number has a few special guests in store. There were a lucky few rippers who scored a ticket to paradise alongside the crew; West coast ripper turned Montana cowboy Jonah Elston, 4FRNT godfather and switch landing guru Thayne Rich, and newly proclaimed king of the switch backflip Lucas Wachs. With the super crew amassed, these six wild men saddled up the sleds, grabbed the skis, along with enough Fat Tire to kill an elephant, and headed into the hills searching for natural features and the perfect spots to construct orbit launching kickers.
With the camera wizard Andrew Mildenberger at the helm, the film looks and feels as good as the skiing is. His smooth, easy going style is easily visible here, and one can only imagine the work he put in behind the scenes to get a product like this. If you have yet to see ‘Most Gutter’, Strictly’s knock out street skiing film by Andrew, it can be found right here. Don’t worry if you’re hungry for more after finishing this beauty up, because they still have one more flick on the way, with ‘August Light’ being the final piece of their triumvirate of films for this year.
