UBC Freeride is a group of skiers and snowboarders from the University of British Columbia that has been producing ski films for the past year. The crew first caught my attention in February with their “Study Break” series. UBC has a diverse style of skiing and can ski at an outstandingly high level of park and also rank with the top big mountain skiers in the sport. They have been a sensation amongst skiers on the internet and will be sure to make a name for themselves within the next few years. UBC heads up to their local mountain of Whistler every weekend and ski the entire mountain from park to the furthest backcountry.
This video was entered into a competition, it was shot and edited throughout the course of seven days. The video was shot on location at Whistler, BC. “Restless” took the first place prize in the competition as it was well deserved for both the excellent skiing and editing. UBC displays an amazing amount of talent in their skiing, as they are versatile skiers that know the true essence of skiing.
UBC will be sure to make a name for themselves within the next few years. They have been absolute hits on newschoolers (a skiing website) and already have a good amount of sponsors to get their name out there. They have an incredible amount of talent and know how to make a hell of a good video, which they never fail to do.
