Nexus: A Ski Film Like No Other
What sets this feature-length film apart is its all-female cast of skiers who take centre stage in this captivating narrative. Nexus takes you on a journey to explore the profound connection between these fearless athletes and the majestic mountains, showcasing how skiing has shaped their lives and relationships.
From the rugged Chugach Mountains in Alaska to the iconic Grand Tetons in Wyoming, Nexus utilizes these breathtaking landscapes as a canvas to delve into the life lessons these remarkable athletes have learned through their passion for skiing. As they carve through powder stashes and conquer challenging couloirs, the film encapsulates the essence of human resilience, strength, and the enduring bonds of friendship.
This film is a testament to the power of women in sports and the dedication they bring to their craft. Supported by notable brands like Arc’teryx, Hydro Flask, Red Bull, Ikon Pass, Wild Rye, SMITH, SKIDA, Lensrentals, Hyperice, Anon, and EXUM, Nexus stands as a groundbreaking production in the skiing industry.
A Milestone for Women in Skiing
Nexus is more than just a ski film; it’s a milestone for women in the skiing world. For far too long, the industry has been marked by the sentiment that “one is enough” when it comes to featuring women in skiing segments. However, Nexus challenges this notion head-on. As Michelle Parker, one of the industry’s most prominent freeskiers and a Nexus athlete, aptly puts it, “If we want to see change in this industry, we need to be the ones out there moving it forward. Nexus is a milestone this industry was long overdue for.”
In Nexus, we witness not just extraordinary skiing but also the camaraderie and bonds that form in the mountains. Early morning ski tours and the weightless turns in untouched snow create friendships that are unbreakable. It’s through skiing that these athletes push the boundaries of what’s possible, descending steep couloirs and conquering challenging cliffs. And when life presents its challenges, the mountains become a refuge, a place to find solace and strength.
The Nexus Ski Film and exclusive live panel discussion promise to be an unforgettable evening that celebrates the resilience, strength, and passion of women in the world of skiing. As the film takes you on a journey through awe-inspiring mountain landscapes and intimate stories of these exceptional athletes, it’s a reminder that in the world of action sports, one is never enough. Nexus is a testament to the power of unity, the indomitable spirit of women, and the boundless possibilities that await those who dare to chase their dreams.
So, mark your calendars for this autumn’s must-attend event, and join ALS Ski in supporting Protect Our Winters UK and Women of Winter while being part of a historic moment in the ski industry. Witness Nexus: One is Not Enough and become inspired to reach for new heights both on and off the slopes.
