ON3P — “ON3P 5”

ON3P 5 ski video on Blister

ON3P just dropped their fifth team movie, and this time around they traded urban rails and thrift-store clothes for Gore-Tex, cliffs, and pillow lines around British Columbia. Watch it here.

Video: Verb Cabin — “Another Way”

Verb Cabin's film, "Another Way," on Blister

Ian Compton has taken a very different approach to skiing. Once one of the best park / urban skiers out there, Ian decided to leave skiing and move to, as he calls it, the “middle of nowhere,” Vermont. Verb Cabin’s short film, “Another Way,” documents Ian’s rise in the sport, the reasoning behind and the outcome of his decision to leave it, and now his return to skiing, in the form of a tiny undisclosed rope-tow near his new home. We think the video is incredibly well done, and you can watch it here.

Patagona — “Done in R1”

The iconic Patagonia R1 Fleece has now been around for 20 years. To celebrate, Patagonia not only increased the recycled content in the line, but they also released one of the most hilarious product-promo videos we’ve ever seen. Check it out.
