Premiering on the Australian channel, “Channel Nine” July 22 at 11am (NSW/QLD), 1pm (QLD/SA), and 2pm (VIC/TAS), Generation Snow combines Australia and New Zealand’s best winter athletes with the country’s leading action filmmakers for sixty minutes of captivating footage.
Aussie and New Zealand based gold Winter Olympic medalists, FIS World Champions, and X Games and Freeride World Tour medalists show the world why the beach loving nation of Australia is the one to beat at the Sochi Winter Olympics 2014.
Generation Snow features segments such as Australia’s golden girl snowboarder, Torah Bright, giving viewers a first time inside view of her life in Utah and beyond; Winter X Games medalist slopestyle skier, Russ Henshaw, leaving his hometown Jindabyne behind for a calendar of international events including The Dew Tour in the USA, and Kiwi riders Nick Hyne and Roland Morley-Brown taking their boards to untouched terrain in Japan.
Melbourne sisters Nat Segal (Freeskiing World Tour medalist) and Anna Segal (FIS World Champion & X Games Slopestyle Skier medalist) go head to head with Kiwi twins Janina Kuzma (Freeride World Tour podium) and Maria Kuzma (Freeride World Tour podium) in a ‘Bledisnow Cup’ with helicopters, cat skiing and snow mobiles in New Zealand.
And Olympian Steve Lee explores Hakuba Japan with alpine racer, Stephanie Auderer. While American freeski superstar Bobby Brown hits the southern hemisphere’s biggest terrain park jump at the Toyota One Hit Wonder Event in Thredbo against fellow American and AFP champion Gus Kenworthy and Kiwi big air and slopestyle ski champion Jossi Wells.
If not already apparent, Generation Snow encompasses just about everything you could hope for in an action snowsports film. With six segments, and an array of slope-ripping, stunt-pulling athletes, this film is sure to make waves.
But what really pulls this entire film together is the world-class production crew including Executive Producer and Generation Snow Creator, Tim Myers (founder of The Toyota One Hit Wonder Event on the AFP tour), Series Producer Rachael Oakes-Ash (Sydney Morning Herald snow journalist and award winning documentary producer) and world renowned cinematographers Chris Hocking, Lucas Wilkinson, Ben Ryan, Ryan Gardner, Jase Hancox and Sean Balmer.
With an elite team of athletes and production crew, Generation Snow will hardly disappoint, displaying the world’s best skiers and snowboarders born and bred in Australia and New Zealand.[media url="https://vimeo.com/45605978" width="650" height="500"]
