We’re Just Skiing

Tuesday, April 7th, 2009

The 420 crew will be traveling from the Sunshine State west to the Lone Star State and in between with their new project “We’re Just Skiing”.  The all winch film illustrates what is possible behind the ole trusty winch.   Winch riding has continued to contribute to the progressiveness of our sport and is seemingly getting oh so popular.  So many things and places become a reality with the winch that was once, a long time ago, unrideable.  This film will inspire all of us to get after it to gap, slide, or bonk whatever lies in our path.  You owe it to yourself to get to one of these venues to see this film and support our demographic, you won’t be disappointed!
