Gistermiddag ontving ik deze mail:
The earth will probably continue to spin, and hopefully light and fluffy snow will still fall in the mountains, but Powdewhore Productions will no longer be producing backcountry ski films. It started as a joke, became an obsession and morphed into an incredible "job". For ten years we have been risking life and limb, hustling the outdoor industry, and working hard on a shoestring budget to tell the stories of those obsessed with sliding on snow and sharing them with friends and the backcountry community.
Our goal with Powderwhore was to capture the freedom of the backcountry and all the diverse and immense possibilities it provides. We quickly realized this was an impossible task. No matter how big the screen we projected upon, it wasn't large enough. The only way to experience it is to do it. Maybe we inspired people to break some trail and follow their powdery dreams into the mountains.
Our hearts and passion led us into the mountains, and into filming, and now those things are leading us safely back out. We are proud of what we were able to ski, film, and accomplish in often inhospitable and dangerous locations and conditions. Unfortunately many, many snowflakes were harmed in the making of our films.
All we can really say is THANK YOU to everyone who supported us along the way. Thank you for coming out to the shows, buying DVDs, getting lost in the images, and most importantly, laughing at us and with us. You will be missed Powderwhore Nation.
En dus gaat hun resterende voorraad in de uitverkoop en is dit je ultieme kans om nog wat mee te pikken van een setje films die inspireerden. Voor 5 dollar per stuk zijn ze op te halen.
Een grote dank gaat uit naar Noah en Jonah voor de stoke die er met ons gedeeld werd. Veel succes met datgene wat nu op jullie pad gaat komen.
