A few weeks ago 30 odd friends met at Mt Buller, Australia for five days of intense riding, shooting and a whole lot of other fun activities like dice, dancing and loopy conversations in front of a fire.

There were two teams, Team NSW and Team VIC (New South Wales and Victoria are the only states in Australia where snow blankets mountains, albeit dismally at times.) They had one task: five days to shoot a short film while under the good time guidance of nature, which provided blues skies, green grass and a patch of snow...plenty to get excited about.

It was a creative bowl of jell-o that got so hot it never had a chance to set. After the week the teams parted and editing finally allowed everything to cool down. The films were then posted online for voting to decide the winner.

After three weeks of social media hustling voting closed yesterday and one state stands atop Mt Victorious. There was SoO much excitement around the winning film, given its unconventional subject, that it proves one thing...SoO Airtime is more than just riding down mountains with a couple of cameras.

Team New South Wales came out on top beating Team Victoria by a whale’s dick, but the real winner was snow-inspired mountain sports and everyone who smiled with the happy man in leopard print underwear.

If you’ve only just plugged into the SoO Airtime starship to infinity, have a look at the films and get excited about the next time you’ll get to slide those slippery slopes...

Team New South Wales - 1st place

Team Victoria - 2nd place
