All In Ski Movie

Matchstick Productions has created my favorite ski movies each and every year. Claim, which they produced in 2008, is my favorite ski movie of all time. The whole premise of the movie is to just have fun skiing and be stoked. Last year, MSP produced their movie called Drop Everything which starred Marcus Eder, Mark Abma, Michelle Parker, Elyse Saugstad, Cody Townsend, and many more amazing athletes. MSP always delivers with endless powder, pillow lines, and cliffs while taking you to amazing places around the world. 

All In is going in a new direction focusing on powerful women skiers in order to send a message that skiing doesn’t have to be a male dominated sport. Allison and I went to the premier of this movie at Squaw Valley on Friday, October 5th. Allison will be writing up a review on the movie that will come out in a couple days!
