If you've watched any Nimbus Independent webisode lately, you know that Eric Pollard is damn fun to watch. Whether he's slashing fluffy knolls or throwing airborne spins between snow-draped firs, this pioneer of backcountry freestyle is indisputably one of the most creative skiers ever to play on the slopes. In this, his latest edit, Pollard, a Line Skis athlete, has spliced together his favorite moments from film shoots last season with Nimbus and Level 1 Productions. He skis his way from Mount Hood to Japan and hits dozens of spots in between. The soundtrack, as you'll soon discover, is pretty awesome, too. So turn up the volume, expand your video player, sit back, and enjoy.
