Ski flicks have really been upping the ante these days (just ask Jeremy Jones), but the latest from Sweetgrass Productions is just ridiculous. Titled Afterglow, producers used thousands of LED lights to create a gorgeous rainbow of colors in the Alaskan mountains. Skiers like Pep Fujas, Eric Hjorleifson, Chris Benchetler, and Daron Rahlves shred trees, spines, and huck themselves off jumps wearing full light suits or LED backpacks, all at night. The result is part ski film, part psychedelic snow adventure and a whole lot of beautiful.
Note: The LED section starts around 6 minutes.
