The Art of Flight
2. Pirate Movie Production - Stronger
With a line-up of riders including Travis Rice, Kazu Kokubo, Gigi Rüf, and Scott Stevens, the Union Bindings team is incredible, and this, their team movie, is probably the greatest team movie ever made.
3. Victor De Le Rue - Frozen Mind
Some say he’s the new Travis Rice – others say he’s even better. One thing is for sure, Victor de le Rue takes Rice’s backcountry freestyle skills and adds a solid dash of mountaineering and steep snowboarding into the mix, hallmark of his legendary older brother, Xavier de le Rue. After an incredible big screen debut in Rice’s Fourth Phase, Victor returns to his spiritual home Chamonix, to test his limits. The result is breathtaking, both in terms of cinematography and riding – a must-watch for every steep skiing aficionado who wants to watch the future of big-mountain riding – today.
4. Nitro Snowboards - 28 Winters
1990 was an amazing time to be a snowboarder: genuinely fresh and rebellious, tweaks were never more tweaked, 360s were considered cutting edge, and Nitro Snowboards was the hottest new snowboard company on the block. 28 winters later, Nitro Snowboards are older, wiser and still one of the best brands in snowboarding, with a team of legends, superstars and youngbloods that’s second to none. This is their story.
5. Pirate Movie Production - Perceptions
Twelve years after Gigi Rüf and his motley crew launched into the world of snowboard movies, the Pirate Crew delivered their greatest work to date: Perceptions. Stunning cinematography, incredible locations and an epic cast of riders makes Perceptions an absolute classic of the genre.
6. Nitro Snowboards - Offline
Life’s too short not to live it in the real world, so here’s a dare: turn off your phone, ditch the laptop, and head out into the mountains. Hang with your friends, ride pow, ride slush, have fun. Live the real deal instead of dreaming about it – that’s the theme of Offline. Nitro’s new team movie has an incredible cast – with Eero Ettala, Sam Taxwood, Austin Smith, Sven Thorgren, Elias Elhardt, Griffin Siebert, Torgeir Bergrem, and Marcus Kleveland headlining, there’s no shortage of inspiration to get offline, and onto the mountain.
7. Mark McMorris - Unbroken
After coming back from a heavy broken femur sustained during a Big Air in Los Angeles, Mark McMorris’s glorious career took another shocking turn for the worse in 2017 when he hit a tree, mid air, in the Canadian backcountry. 11 months after what would have ended the career, if not life of lesser mortals, Mark was back, and winning the Bronze medal in Pyeongchang. Unbroken is the kind of true story you couldn’t make up if you tried, and it’s finally available on Red Bull TV. Prepare to be glued to the edge of your seat.
8. Method Magazine - Method Movie 3

10. Teton Gravity Research - Ode to Muir
When big mountain legend Jeremy Jones says that this is “unquestionably the most important film I’ve ever made”, every powder hound on the planet should prick up their ears. And although TGR delivers their usual brew of amazing action and stunning cinematography, at its heart, Ode to Muir is the story of America’s original environmentalist, and the wilderness he fought to preserve. A seven-day split boarding expedition deep into the high Sierra terrain of the John Muir wilderness, this is a film that’s as thoughtful as it is beautiful.
