Introducing Made Back East, a natively New England ski film. A Vagrants original, in partnership with Parlor Skis and presented by Life is Good, explores the love affair with backcountry skiing in the east.
The ski community refers to the home of Vagrants and Parlor Skis as “back east.” Assuming that anybody who grew up skiing there would eventually find their way out West. But to them, that assumes too much. The mark of a true New England skier is a deep appreciation for the bad days just as much as the good ones. As they say, “if you can ski the northeast, you can ski anywhere.” In this film, Vagrants follows six diehard skiers on a trip into the woods seeking that perfect window where everything comes together.
Parlor Skis is a Cambridge, Massachusettes based custom ski company founded by Mark Wallace, Pete Endres, and Jason Epstein. Parlor was founded on a shared passion for skiing, New England, and designing and building great products. Their goal is to share this passion with as many people as they can.
