Following Tanner Hall and crew around the world in his latest ski film, Believe. Watch Tanner, Seth Morrison, Kye Petersen, Sean Pettit, Callum Pettit, Anthony Borownowski, Ian Provo, Dan Treadway, CR Johnson and more as they take skiing to a level unlike anything youve ever seen before. Believe takes you from sessions in chest deep blower pow at Mt. Baker to a little cat time in Retallack, British Columbia. The journey continues while picking up major speed through Whistler, B.C., then on to a massive roadside session in Japan as the crew mashes the all time dirtiest pillows in Mica and up North to Haines, Alaska as Seth Morrison throws a 150+ double front flip to stop! Believe is the new standard in ski films, dont get left behind.



This short ski movie produced and directed by Constantine Papanicolaou varies from your run of the mill ski movie. It doesn't aim to be a hardcore movie like most of it's rivals. Instead it seems to showcase skiing which could be achieved by most advanced skiers out there. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, it is merely different.

If you are one who is into huge cliff drops, steep lines and gnarly park sessions, then this movie isn't for you. In fact, it doesn't really have any of the above. Instead, Tanner Hall and friends rip some amazing pillow lines and open bowls in Mt. Baker, Japan, Whistler and elsewhere. There is nothing but powder to be seen throughout the movie.

Surprisingly the “urban” section lasts little under a minute. There is also a random skateboarding segment and a jibbing piece towards the end, which seems to make up for the lack of airtime quite well. However, it does seem as if CP just wanted to include an urban and a jibbing piece to make the movie seem more like an “all-round” movie.

As for the cinematography, it certainly isn't bad and there are some amazing shots, however at times you think that the director is perhaps trying a little too hard to put some soul in this movie. With regards to the soundtrack, it definitely isn't a bad choice of songs. My only point would be that the songs seem to change abruptly and it's too noticeable for my liking.

Skiing-wise, this film is great and will get you pumped to click in those skis of yours. With riders such as Tanner Hall, Seth Morrison and Kye Petersen you know you're going to get some decent lines out there. There is a reason after all as to why this film got four Powder Magazine Video Award nominations, including "Movie of the Year". That said the film lacks a specific “wow element”, nothing truly stands out from it. It really only is a movie full of pillow lines.
