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.
