The Sacred Grounds // Part Five: FACETS

by Matchstick
Jan 30th - 316 views

The fifth and final episode of Kye Petersen's "The Sacred Grounds" is here!!

The Sacred Grounds short film series takes the cast from their backyard of the southern Coast Range of BC, to the far reaches of the Northern BC/Alaska border, to the Japanese Alps, to the Columbia ranges of interior BC, to reaches of the Southern Chilcotins Mountains and beyond.

We are excited to share these adventures into undiscovered zones and 'Sacred Grounds' that hold the best possible terrain environment for displaying these riders passion for skiing. The mountains provide us with so many blessings but can also take it all away in an instant - for this respect is due, a life of dedication is needed, and a whole lot of effort is required, all of which is rewarded with the times of their lives when it all comes together.

Part 5 ‘Facets’ takes us on a journey to the less remote sacred places that still offer life changing experiences. Here we follow Kye to spots he enjoys his every day adventures. Unlike the previous episodes of this series these are mostly common places many skiers and outdoor enthusiasts enjoy, from riding lift access powder Crystal ridge and Spankys bowl in Whistler, to ski touring Blackcomb peak, to fly fishing the banks of the Skeena river, to skateboarding the infamous Whistler skatepark, to casting for Coho on the beaches of Tofino and spring shredding with friends on Blackcomb mountain.

On this final episode to the series we share the striking contrast of how casual yet special these daily outings that shape the life of skiers are, but also how important it is for us to seek the unknown now and then and explore the edge of our comfort zone. We end this series with a session of Alexi, Brin and Kye skiing and boarding some of the steepest and most intense zones deep in the backcountry near Squamish BC. This episode, more than any before it, is as real of profile as it gets highlighting the places that truly shaped Kye’s life and respect for not only the outer limits of his backyard, but also the nearest and dearest.

From the Fjords of Norway to the spines of Alaska, we will get to know and understand the canvas that creates the most mind-melting moments in skiing.

The Land of Giants features the best skiers in the world, skiing unbelievable conditions and riding to the very edge and beyond. It's a celebration of the natural world, and a reminder of the power of the human spirit. It's a film that will leave you awestruck, inspired, and humbled.

Making our return to the site with the official trailer for our 30th annual ski film! ANYWHERE FROM HERE!

The sport of skiing is unquestionably one of the most diversified recreational pursuits imaginable.
By the time a lifelong skier reaches middle age, he or she has likely dabbled in or fully dedicated
him or herself to a myriad of facets within the sport. Each facet provides an entirely new set of
experiences, thrills, challenges and rewards.
Matchstick Productions 2022 ski film explores this world of opportunities through the eyes of a
12 year-old freestyle phenomenon. Through his voice, the audience hears the skiing aspirations
of such a 12 year-old, a kid who just wants to play and doesn’t have to ponder “real life” quite
yet.

The core of this film is packed with a star studded cast of skiers shredding across the globe.

Featuring: Sam Kuch, Tonje Kvivik, Eric Hjorleifson, Markus Eder, Emily Childs, Logan Pehota,
Caite Zeliff, Lucas Wachs, Mathea Olin, Cole Richardson, Craig Murray, Lucy Sackbauer, Mark
Abma, Sam Cohen, Dennis Ranalter, Hunter Hess, Birk Irving and introducing Walker Woodring.
