Behind The Scenes of The Ordinary Skier
An exclusive video edit of Seth Morrison and friends by Nate Wallace
This is a project that was inspired by the advice of the Jaded Local, better known as Hans Ludwig. Who would have thought that Oakley would just give me the footage from The Ordinary Skier to do a behind-the-scenes edit? But that was exactly what happened. I called the producer Greg Strokes and he said okay, call C.P., and good luck.
What came in the mail was a hard-drive with footage spanning two years in Chamonix shot by Constantine Papanicolaou, Chris Figenshau, Matt Herriger, Christian Pondella, and myself.
I found myself laughing. Squeezed between a few great runs were jokes, laughter, smiles, and life-changing moments. I got to go ski around with Seth Morrison, Kye Petersen, and J.P. Auclair in one of the wildest places on the planet. Talk about good times. —Nate Wallace
