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..
