Sherpas Cinema's "Imagination"

A creative, dedicated take on turning a skier's daydream into reality.

Ever look out of a wintry car window and imagine a skier glissading next to the vehicle, popping little airs off driveway obstacles along the way? Some of the staff at SKI Magazine does, and this fantasy-while-driving has led to some precarious situations on mountain passes as we nearly drifted out of our lane (note: don't daydream while driving!).

Apparently, we're in good company. Taking inspiration from the legendary JP Auclair segment in Sherpas Cinema's All.I.Can, the latest short from Sherpas Cinema and Tom Wallisch turns a child-at-heart fantasy into a real ski run down the streets of Nelson, British Columbia. You don't have to be a fan of urban skiing to enjoy this vision of what skiing can be.

Looking for more creative skiing that may or may not involve snow? You'll probably dig this summer footage from the Finns at Real Skifi.
