Europe’s premier ski movie producers, Aestivation Entertainment, announce their 2011 release "Lifelong" presented by Gore-Tex. This feature movie which gathers the greatest European freeskiing talent at some of the best snow destinations worldwide: Kaunertal (Austria), Warth (Austria), Dolomiti Superski (Italy), Valhalla Powdercats (Canada), Kronplatz (Italy), Serfaus (Austria), Gulmarg (India), Sölden (Austria), Val Senales (Italy), West Coast of Norway, Folgefonna (Norway)- will hit the big screen in fall 2011.
Every ski season consists of multiple days, hundreds of runs and thousands of moments that we will last in our memory, some of them for the rest of our lives. Even in a winter that wasn’t the greatest in the Alps, the Aestivation athletes found plenty of these lifelong treasures. Markus Eder, Roy Kittler and Nico Zacek shredded the snow-prone cities of Munich and Dresden (Germany) in early December before hitting the backcountry in the Southern Alps later on. Ane Enderud and Phil Meier found perfect powder on Norway’s wild west coast, while a whole cast of freestylers and freeriders including Tobi Tritscher, Dennis Ehlert, Basti Hannemann and McFly took advantage of the once-in-a-lifetime winter season in British Columbia.
The Aestivation filmers Mo and Max Garhammer, Niclas Loeffler, Hias Springer and Sean Balmer followed the riders for six months and captured all the most memorable moments in Full HD. Over summer the Garhammer brothers will apply their legendary editing skills to finish "Lifelong" in time for its release in September. One of the highlights will undoubtedly be the halfpipe sessions of Kevin Rolland and Ben Valentin filmed in 3D and super slow-motion on the Kaunertal Glacier, a definite first in ski movie history. But also don’t miss the best ever girls’ kicker session at the Nine Queens in Serfaus, the incredibly deep powder of Kashmir and some late-season backcountry madness in Scandinavia with Lolo Favre, Leo Taillefer and Niklas Eriksson.
"Lifelong" presented by Gore-Tex will hit cinemas in more than 20 cities across Europe in fall 2011. For all those who won’t have the chance to see "Lifelong" on the big screen, the movie will be distributed with Europe’s leading ski magazines in December 2011 and available for download from the official website later on.
