Coline Ballet-Baz introduces her new project SKIVAS featuring 10 of the best female skiers and snowboarders during the 2019/2020 season. The 100% female film proves that these ‘Ski/Divas’ are pushing the boundaries of freedom, creativity and sisterhood on and off the mountain.
After many years competing, Coline wanted to go back to what made her excited about freesking at the beginning : friendship, freedom and constant discovery. Through this movie, Coline wants to show that freeskiing is more than just a sport, it’s a lifestyle, an art.
From the streets of Quebec City to the great mountains of Chamonix, via the backcountry of La Rosière, Coline and her team were able to finish shooting the film just before the closure of the stations and borders in March 2020. From street tricks to vertiginous steep slopes, these ten modern-day warriors are out to break boundaires and push their limits.
Selected for the festivals: Montagne en Scène, HighFive, IF3, BANFF, Kendal Mountain Festival, SnowVison Festival, Montagne au Féminin and We Love Pow Pow.
