No disrespect to any riders or filmers in this piece, but i do want to express my honest opinion. This edit was over hyped, underwhelming and some of the clips were a downright bad example of the K2 teams level of skiing. It could have made a much bigger impact if the filmer/editor omitted about half of the clips shown in the video.
There were clips in there of each rider landing and executing tricks sloppily; I would bet any amount of money if the riders had seen the edit prior to its release they would have said "do NOT put that clip in there". Maybe this highlights the lack of communication between the team and their management.
There were missed grabs, arms flailing, and hands touching the ground all over the video. Make no mistake, even top level pros like these guys dont ski perfectly every run. They make mistakes, frequently even. To assume they dont flail or screw up is a childish view on pro skiers. Thats not my point though. My point is that the editor should be aware of this fact, and should know that some of the clips should've been omitted. It almost devalues the skill level of the team by using bad clips. Again, i would bet that the riders did, or would have, asked the editor not to include them.
I found it surprising that one of the most revered teams in the industry would put out an edit with (seemingly) no oversight and very little thought put into how the final product exemplifies the team. A shorter edit with cleaner tricks is better than a 5 minute edit with B roll scattered everywhere
The editing seemed overdone as well
Whoever edited this made a mistake by not limiting it to the riders best footage. Included too many sketchy clips that would never get used by a high level team or company edit
