Verbier-based freeskier turns to filmmaking with ‘Freeride Skiing Visions’
A freeskier makes his way to the top in the light of a full moon. He puts on his ties under the gaze of the entire Milky Way. That’s what Yann Rausis is.
Yann Rausis is a professional skier based in Verbier, Switzerland. He rides for faction skis and long-distance skiing – hard.
After years of participating in the Freeride World Tour, he decided it was time for a change. Rausis focused at the end of last season on self-producing a film project that shows his “personal vision of skiing”.
Looking for more? Here’s a quick recap of the movie:
A skier wanders alone near a glacier on a full moon night and enters the abyss of an ice cave. His aspiration for spiritual liberation guides him there, as far as possible from everything he knows. Diving into the depths of the unknown, he experiences a mystical connection with his higher self through visions of freeride skiing.
The film is called “FROM SOURCE” and will be presented in preview at High Five Festival October 2. It has already been selected for three different film festivals and the IF3 Cinema Prize 2021 in Chamonix, France. Watch the trailer today.
Duration: 14 minutes
