"This Is Home“ is a film about the joy we have for the mountains, and the constant search for that perfect ride. It’s about a collective born from one passion, and the individuals who give that group its personality; insiders and outsiders. This is a film about the current state of skiing, and a blueprint for the future. About being in the right place, at the right time.

From Europe to the US and back again – via old playgrounds, new challenges, secret spots and favourite lines – "This Is Home“ chronicles what it means to be a freeskier today; where the conditions are what you make of them – and the search for that perfect ride starts in your own backyard.

Filmed in a modern, cinematic and powerful way, "This Is Home“ features some of the best skiers in the world: Candide Thovex, the world’s most famous and acclaimed freeskier, Swiss experienced big mountain skier Sam Anthamatten to 15-year old phenomenon Kelly Sildaru, freeskiing icon Adam Delorme or prodigies Alex Hall and Antti Ollila, our diverse roster is often referred to as ‘the best team in freeskiing’.

After our world premiere in Annecy, France in October, we will bring "This Is Home“ to our fans across the globe.

We will create truly unique experiences bringing together our partners, retailers, athletes and fans.

Our film tour will go from London to Salt Lake City, Helsinki to Tokyo and many more stops along the way. We will also participate in a number of film festivals, and are hoping to organize a screening with you too!
