Trilogy Trailer from the Free Heel Hippies | Beans and Rice Freeride

Bevan Waite |

A long, long time ago..  In a galaxy far, far away…

Winter is knocking on the door, and nothing will get you more stoked than this webisode trilogy from the Deepside (of the Tetons).  Pro telewackers, Paul Kimbrough and Jake Sakson joined forces last season to capture some great backcountry skiing and present it in a unique style. Prepare to delve into the psychology of the ski bum as Beans and Rice Freeride takes viewers through the challenges of human-powered backcountry ski filming.  But don’t take these guys too seriously, they participate in a sport that usually involves falling on your face.

These two are game changers in the world of Telemark skiing.  Blurring the boundaries between freeheel and alpine skiing, Jake and Paul are widely considered to be the most progressive freeheelers “on this side of the Milky Way.”  Locating themselves at the base of the Tetons in Driggs, Idaho, the duo takes pride in hiking all their lines and ripping near straight tracks (in tele stances) down much of the Teton’s freeride terrain.

Last season was their first season of operation together.  Having spent all their money on quality film equipment, they found shelter and solace in a small basement living off nothing but rice and beans, and various vegitables to prevent scurvy.  During this time they made two worthy edits that will make you salivate for more.

Luckily, for ski-porn junkies, the release of this season’s trailer looks like we’ll soon have three more reasons to procrastinate and indulge in our daily dose of hippy stoke.

We will be posting their webisodes as they are released, so look forward to much more freeheel shenanigans from the Beans and Rice crew.  And stay strong Jake and Paul, the Force is with you.
