DPS Cinematic’s fifth season of ‘The Shadow Campaign’ is finally here and their first ethereal episode – The Abbey – paints skiing as a religious experience. 

We’re not arguing either after watching nearly 6 minutes of perfect pow turn after pow turn…

“I’d rather be in the mountains thinking about God, than in a church thinking about mountains.” – John Muir

It’s no surprise the video quickly achieved Vimeo Staff Pick status and although DPS where light on details behind this one, they described the it as:

“A lone skier arrives in town, only to find abysmally wet and soggy conditions. Seeking respite from the rain, he finds solace and redemption in the unlikeliest of places.”
