Set Your Sights Trailer

The boys at Toy Soldier Productions have done it again!



Set Your Sights Official Press Release

The Montana-based film crew Toy Soldier Productions has released the trailer for its second full-length ski & snowboard film, Set Your Sights.  The show and following tour will kick off at the Emerson Cultural Center in Bozeman, Montana on September 1, 2011. 

Toy Soldier Productions spent the 2010/2011 winter exploring the Northwestern United States with some of the best up-and-coming talent in the ski & snowboard world. Though differing in their aims, they’ve found themselves on a similar path, brought together by the winter and her storms. Set Your Sights chronicles this journey.

While mostly shot in Montana, the crew also filmed in Utah, California, Washington, South Dakota, Alaska, Wyoming and Whistler, B.C.  Set Your Sights features Shay Lee, Karl Fostvedt, Sandy Boville, Finn Anderson, Dash Kamp, Luke Tanaka, Mack Jones, Pat Cowan, Brock Paddock, Josh Anderson, Cody Perin, Zak Steele, Austin Torvinen, Noah Wallace, Jake Doan, Sam Hurst, David Steele, John Kutcher and more.

Toy Soldier is extremely grateful for the support of our sponsors: ON3P Skis, Phar North and Rime Knits.

Shred in peace, little buddy

Recently, we've heard some terrible news.  A 13 year old up and coming skier, Tanner Olson, passed away the other day in a car accident on the way home shredding from Mt Hood.
We were fortunate enough to have met Tanner this past year over at the Chamberlain Rail Jam in Bozeman, Montana.  He was a great kid full of energy and stoke who definitely had a unique passion for skiing.  Despite being one of the youngest competitors in the Jam, he ignored any pressure that was put on him and stepped up to slay the different features just as well as anyone else.  While his time here was cut short and his future potential left unknown, we're confident that such a great kid will find a spot in heaven on the lift right alongside others such as CR and Shane; scoping lines and ripping pow with the best.

We wish Tanners family and friends all the best.  Shred in Peace, little buddy..

Bomb Snow Brogue

Our friends down at Bomb Snow Magazine in Bozeman, MT held the first annual Bomb Snow Brogue a couple weeks ago in Cooke City, MT.  Blending some of the craziest zones in North America with some of the best riders from the area, the Brogue looks like it's in line to be one of the gnarliest and most fun events to compete in each season.  We're really stoked for those guys and how the event turned out, and know that we can expect a lot more from them in years to come!

Check out the video they made from it:

Closing day at Bridger Bowl

Photo: Reid Morth
Reid Morth put together a good little article on frequency: The Snowboarders Journal about the closing day at Bridger Bowl, Montana.  Its a great piece, with some classic photos and words that really capture the vibe up at Bridger during these spring days.  So great, that we've copied some of the elements into this post to highlight some of the high points....but be sure to check out the original here:

And if you're looking for a hilarious edit that puts some of these stills to motion, Todd Kirby and the boys at Moose Mansion threw together this tree slapping, brew sipping, slush slashing montage of their last day.


Looks like great way to end a great year over in Montana!

Soggy Pow.

Collin Collins made a trip out to Washington, and happened to catch the warm cycle of a storm that was just coming in. Unfortunately, thats the kind of stuff we have to deal with up in the PNW in order to earn our nipple deep days, right?? We went up to Baker for a day and caught some soggy pow-shred with Luke Tanaka and other homies though, and filmed some of it. Even when its wet, its still fun!

The Approach

The boys at Nimbus Independent just released their newest edit, 'En Route Approach'.  Check out some of the best skiing from around the world...including our little home mountain White Pass.  Whew!


Yeah boy!

Whoops.

...we had a couple brews last night and ended up sendin 'er pretty good.  After the car got towed, we found a chainsaw to play with - and thats where the blackout kicks in.  When we woke up this morning, this is what we found...
Whoops.

Looks like all those trees we've planted over the past couple years have been for nothing!  

So apparently we've got some making up to do.  We figured to help kick start that, we'd put on a sale for all of our remaining hats...only $ 17.95 for any hat and $ 10.95 for any headband.  Each order includes a sticker or two, and is shipped to your door at no extra charge.  And yes, we'll plant a tree for each one sold to make up for the old growth massacre that we partook in last night.

Check out our remaining supply here.
*Offer is good from the moment you read this until April 4th.


Bonus Trivia!  
Which of the following statements is a lie?
A. We drank some brews last night.
B. Our car got towed.
C. We cut down an entire section of forest.
D. We're having a sale.

First person to comment with the correct trivia answer gets a free headband of their choice.  And.....go!

Collin Collins throwing down at FSWT









Rime rider Collin Collins competed last weekend at the final stop of the Free-skiing World Tour here at Snowbird, UT. He powerd his way through the first day of the competition making it to semifinals and but for a hip-check on a big right 540, which he skied out of, would have had a good shot at the finals. Collin was received a last minute invite to the Redbull Cold Rush competition in Silverton CO the next day though so he got some immediate redemption.

Mmm...tasty pow

So there was a bit of a dump a couple weeks ago in Washington, and we were able to get two full days of pow-shred out of it.  I took out the 'ol ContourHD and made a couple quick edits highlighting the little bits that made each day so damn fun.

The camera shorted out halfway through my second run on the first day, but you still get the jist of it..

And then Day 2 was pure glory, with a little behind-the-scenes filming action.

Enjoy.

Rime'ing at X-Games


Cruised down to Aspen this last weekend to shoot at the 2011 Winter X-Games. Met up with the creator himself, Ross Reid, and we hung at the event and at the Powder Video Awards. Pretty amazing to see the caliber of athletes throwing down that were, and then just as amazing, the outrageous parties that followed. Both Ross and I agreed that the one thing we truly appreciated was our toasty knits keeping us warm in the subzero temperatures that were hosting the games each night.

Todd Kirby update

Found some good pow up at Hylite this week. Still shot from filming.

An edit i made of riding park back at home...Hyland Hills, MN

RevelStoked Part 2

The action continues from Revelstoke, BC with some epic skiing in some epic conditions. SemiFinals, etc. There is also about a minute of "blind" footage, during which my camera was snowblind, but the audio of the crowd after my run is pretty moving.

Mr. Brown, down for the count.

So we had some extra passes to the local and notorious 'Trampoline Land' lying around the office, and one day a local Baker homie of ours, Keaton Brown, was in town getting some boots fitted.  We thought, "Hell, we got a couple hours to kill - lets go sesh some tramps and get stoked on this storm thats a brewin'!"  So we nabbed those passes and headed on down the street to get our bounce on.

Ended up getting there right as they opened for the day, it was literally us and two other people there.  We were stoked - jumping all over the courts, transfers between tramps, playing J-I-B on the padding and even learning some new dubs into the foam pit.  Life was good.  But as our session neared its end (literally in the last 30 seconds of it) Keaton went for a line he had been working on for a while, and had nearly perfected.  As the 'authorities' walked over to tell us our time was up, Keaton stomped a sick Rodeo 5 transfer off the wall...a little too hard.  Folding his foot in half, he heard a loud pop and instantly dropped.
So now he's out for a couple months with two broken bones and possible ligament damage, yet he humbly awaits his return to the slopes.  Ullr must have been pretty bummed on the injury too, because he quickly turned that '90 inch storm' that was coming into nothing but rain.

The good news is that before his injury, Keaton stacked some of the rowdiest Contour HD headcam footy from the two months of shred he was blessed with, and now has ample time to learn FCP.  Edit coming soon.

In the meantime, we stumbled upon some of these photos from an epic pow day from last season at Baker and thought we'd post 'em for for Keat.  Here's first chair, as always:

3 off a pillow.

Tree tap.

Lovin' these mid-week pow days!

Pre-slash.

Post-slash.

Yeah, it was a DEEP day.

Rhymin' Skills

You may recall a little contest we did a couple years ago called the 'Rhyme for a Rime' contest in which hundreds of rhymes were submitted to compete for placement on the inside of our hats.  Some were good, a lot were aweful - it was a tough to narrow down the winner.  We ended up going with a rhyme by Matt Fry that you might recognize from the inside of one of your  knits...

"Drop the gun, stop the hate.  It's cheesey, but cheese is what made Mac great"

Well Matt just hit us up to let us know that he's been working on his rhyming game since then, and has released his first EP under the name The Philosofist titled 'One Love'.  It's got a dope beat and some fresh rhymes, give it a listen..



Some lyrical hot fyah!

RevelStoked Part 1

Road tripped up to British Columbia for two weeks of skiing pow and competing in the Freeskiing World Tour at Revelstoke. We got hit with a nice storm while in Revy, fresh snow nearly every day for a week, making for epic competition conditions.

I logged a ton of footage from the trip, so I'm breaking it up into two parts. Part 2 will step it up, featuring Semi-Finals, some really amazing skiing around Revelstoke, and Finals.

Masks with Hook-ups.




  We're stoked to announce our newest addition to our line of Rime - Face masks!  However, these aren't just the standard issue bandana-style masks that you're used to seeing.

The masks are all made from a soft and comfortable blend of hemp and organic cotton.  They are also printed, dyed and sewn locally, with a tree being planted for each one sold.

These new lightweight designs are specialized for Spring and Summer riding - thick enough to keep any late season faceshots from choking you or getting into your jacket, but with enough breathability to keep you cool and protected from the sun all summer long.

Rime Face masks also feature an innovative way to secure your mask in place with the 'Rime Hook-ups System'. 
With these Hook-ups, there's no need to bite your bandana to keep it up or having to constantly re-adjust your 'face gear' every time you stop.  You also don't need to settle on the 'all or nothing' approach - relying on your goggles to hold up the mask or just letting it hang around your neck. Hook-ups allow you to set the tightness and positioning of your mask wherever you want it, wether its all the way up over your nose, down on your chin, or just keeping the 'ol neck warm. 

Not only that, but they do a great job of keeping your gear together should you find yourself tomahawking down a face that you really don't want to hike up to reclaim a hat lost in the madness.

Best of all though, they're very easy to use...
We're introducing 3 different styles of masks in a wide variety of colors and patterns, all equipped with Hook-ups.
Check 'em out in the Threads section of The Shop.  Enjoy!
