Here at Polartec, we try not to pick sides. We try to be neutral… Switzerland if you will. Especially, when it comes to the question that has divided families and companies alike, do you tele or do you alpine? Do you free the heel or lock it down? Well in this case, we’ve definitely got our hand in both honey pots.
We even sponsor the Scufoneda, a ski festival and competition held annually deep in the heart of the Italian Dolomites that celebrates BOTH telemark and alpine freeskiers.
No matter which way you ski, however, the season is slowly moving upon is, and the newest ski movie trailers have been popping up everywhere. The winner of last year’s Scufoneda-in the tele category, and also a member of our Polartec Athlete Advisory Board, Nick Devore, spent this past winter shooting with tele film company, Powderwhore. The film is also sponsored by Polartec partners, Black Diamond and Mountain Hardwear, two more brands that when it comes to free or locked heels, seem to be pro choice.
Here is the trailer, enjoy!
