The very best skiers toe the line between athlete and artist.

Instead of leaving their mark on paper, their mark is left on snow. Racers draw pencil thin lines into corduroy whilst big mountain and backcountry freeriders leave two trenches behind them when the powder gets deep, like gouging lino cuts.

Naturally, when the two disciplines combine it can make for something pretty special. Enter Noah Albaladejo and Pepe Gay, who today released one of the most unique edits we’ve seen in a long time. Made entirely out of drawings - no less than 900 - and modelled on Albaladejo’s best footage over the years, this skiing, edit, drawing is a masterpiece.

Titled ‘Nah’ the video is unsurprisingly a staff pick on Vimeo at the moment.
