“The League” – Eine Doku über die Zukunft von Freeski Comps

“The League” ist eine äußerst sehenswerte Doku über die erste Jib League Saison, ihre Gründer Ferdinand Dahl, James Woods und Øystein Bråten und zeigt eindrucksvoll, warum das Format die Zukunft von Freeski-Contests sein könnte.

“A decade after freeskiing became an Olympic discipline, many riders are longing for an alternative to the current trajectory of the sport. Instead of rigid contest structures and national teams, they dream of a new kind of freeski event, something more true to the sport’s unruly origins. And so, in the fall of 2022, an idea begins to take form…

THE LEAGUE is the untold story of how the Jib League came to be. It’s an intimate documentary following Ferdinand Dahl, James “Woodsy” Woods and Øystein Bråten on their path to creating one of the most instantly beloved events in freeskiing.

Enjoy this unfiltered, behind-the-scenes journey from frustration to inspiration, doubt to certainty and worry to jubilation as three friends strive to create something original, and to push the sport they love in a bold new direction.”
