The Freeheel Life 2: Hippies, Punx and Misfits will embark on a fifty-date nationwide tour slated to hit ski towns, universities and metropolitan areas this fall and early winter.

Jeffersonville, VT June 25, 2010: Telemark Skier Magazine is pleased to announce the newest film from editor and freeheel guru Josh Madsen. The Freeheel Life 2: Hippies, Punx and Misfits will embark on a fifty-date nationwide tour slated to hit ski towns, universities and metropolitan areas this fall and early winter.

The Freeheel Life 2 explores the full timeline of the Telemark history, from its roots in Norway and subsequent reemergence in the United States in 1970s to its modern manifestations. The film features appearances from legendary veterans Tom Carter and Doug Robinson, in addition to a number of forward thinking freeheelers including Candy Froerer, Weston Deutschlander and Ty Dayberry.

Shot on location in Norway, Utah, Alaska and California, Hippies, Punx and Misfits takes a broader approach to the Telemarking experience than its predecessor, The Freeheel Life. “It has a more deeply layered story line, possesses more documentary elements, and follows a more unified theme,” says Madsen.

Naturally, viewers can also expect plenty of Telemark action. In scenes both on and off-piste, the film showcases the sport’s most progressive moves and boldest descents. Says Madsen: “The powder is deep, the lines are breathtaking, and it’s all mixed with an inspiring soundtrack from Salt Lake City musicians.” A key figure in the freeheel scene for over nine years, Madsen is no stranger to big air. As a top-tier athlete he appeared in Warren Miller’s Higher Ground, in addition to several of his own releases through his former company, Lipstick Films.

This is the second year that Telemark Skier Magazine has sponsored Josh’s nationwide film tour. Now in its 8th year of publication, the magazine showcases the diverse Telemark lifestyle in both words and images, and will hit newsstands in October with its yearly Buyer’s Guide. Says Madsen: “TSM helps tie together the common soul that Telemark skiers have always had.”

The official trailer for The Freeheel Life 2 is now available at www.telemarkskier.com, with the finalized tour schedule soon to follow. Josh will be posting updates from the road on facebook (Telemark Skier Magazine), and updating his twitter at @Teleskiermag. To schedule a showing contact Madsen at josh@telemarkskiermagazine.com.
