Award-winning production company Legs of Steel teams up with Völkl to present their first film shot within the boundaries of a ski resort!
This film expresses pure fun on groomed slopes and makes you look forward to skiing: “Beauty Full Send” by Innsbruck-based film production company Legs of Steel shows a new breed of skiers who redefine all-mountain skiing, everywhere from moguls to crud to corduroy – the art to send it with style and beauty in any terrain!
The Emmy winners of Legs of Steel (LOS) break new ground: “Beauty Full Send” is the first inbounds ski film from the production company that has caused quite a stir internationally over the last ten years with their award-winning Freeride movies such as Markus Eder’s “Ultimate Run”(2021), “Long Days”(2021), or “Same Difference“(2017). In the stunning images of the 7-minute, high-energy short film “Beauty Full Send”, the crew around Anne Kissling (GER), Madison Rose Ostergren (USA), Tim Fritz (GER), and Jim Ryan (USA) celebrate the beauty of speed, control and full commitment to playful all-mountain skiing. Shot at Davos-Klosters and Madrisa in Switzerland as well as Stubai Glacier in Tirol, the team enjoyed riding by day and by night, by moonlight and by midday sun, at dusk and at dawn, reinterpreting the varied terrain with creativity and skill.
“I was so excited that LOS and Völkl were eager to showcase inbounds skiing. It’s what most people experience, but not what most people see in the media.”
– Jim Ryan
“Skiing has so many beautiful facets and the clip shows that not just powder or freestyle skiing is the way to ski. It’s the individual beautiful turn on a fresh groomed slope as well as the turns in crud – tons of fun when you send this together with your friends.”
– Anne Kissling
The magical recipe for any LOS ski film is the energy between the cast and production crew – and “Beauty Full Send” is certainly no exception. The power this team brought to the table resulted in a perfectly orchestrated back and forth between creativity, performance, and beautiful imagery inbounds of a ski resort. The LOS crew around director Christoph Thoresen managed to capture and distill this vibe in a high-energy edit reflecting any skier’s dream of a perfect ski day.
In the spring of 2022, Legs of Steel’s “The Ultimate Run” took home the Emmy for “Outstanding Camera Work – Long Form” becoming the first ski film to do so in the history of the awards. With “Beauty Full Send” the Tyrol-based production company set the next milestone. For more information, please visit legsofsteel.eu.
