Our four best ski movies from 2024 are oozing with all the action you'd expect from Team SunGod. From the powder fields of Japan to the Australian Alps, Ari, Maxime, Tim and Enzo's films draw on some of the most significant themes in snowsports today, and are a surefire way to get you buzzing for the winter ahead.
Check out our top four ski films from 2024:
Film 1: Ari Tricomi - What If..?
3x Freeride World Champion skier Ari Tricomi asks the questions that matter in her latest film, "What If..?". After back-to-back winters riddled with injury, avalanche and desperately bad snow conditions, Ari shares an honest account of the hidden side of life as a pro skier, driving home the message that at the end of the day, it's all about balance.
Favourite scene from the film? "The moment where I talk about my ego. Where my ego is telling me to go and ski that face, because I'll get so many likes....And then it goes into the FWT. There's often a lot of ego in the picture when you ski comps. It makes you push yourself, which on one hand is really good, but you have to be careful that your ego doesn't get in the way of making the right decision." - Ari Tricomi
Motivation for making the movie? "My motivation came from some hard years before, combined with some pretty bad winters and some big injuries. I experienced back-to-back bad winters - as a pro skier, it was pretty hard for me, and I was so scared that this would be our new normal. There are all these issues as a pro skier today that you don't really see from the outside, so I just wanted to be honest for once and share that it's not all podiums and powder." - Ari Tricomi

Film 2: Enzo Scotto - Nakama
Inspired by a love of all things Japan, French freeskier and Team SunGod rider Enzo takes France to the powder fields of Japan in his latest movie "Nakama". A feel-good film that takes us back to the simple pleasures of shredding powder with your best friends.
Favourite moment from the filming process? "It's got to be the search; looking for the best terrain to get the perfect shot. The process is long and requires a lot of patience, but the satisfaction when you get the perfect shot is so worth it." - Enzo Scotto
Favourite scene from the film? "If I had to choose, I'd say the scene where we're all doing a double backflip at the same time. You're all sharing the same pressure, which makes it so fun to film." - Enzo Scotto
Why did you make the film? "We decided on Japan because we love Japanese culture and it was a childhood dream to ski Japanese powder! We made the movie so we could have a souvenir of our winter, that shows our joy of skiing together." - Enzo Scotto

Team SunGod prodigy and dual-talented athlete Maxime has claimed the world title in not one but two sports: freeride skiing and kitesurfing. He's already achieved legendary status in both sports, and his latest film, Petit Suisse, explores the man behind the titles.
Favourite moment of the movie? "The Brazil GKA final and the Verbier Freeride World Tour, hands down." - Maxime Chabloz
And the message? "That despite what people might think, I'm not really so crazy after all..." - Maxime Chabloz

Film 4: Tim Van Der Krogt - 36° South
While most Team SunGod ski movies are filmed in the chest-deep powder of Japan, the Alps or North America, Tim goes down under to reveal Australia's hidden backcountry, proving that you can find incredible lines where you least expect them.
Favourite moment from the filming process? "Riding the last line and realizing that we had finished. We put a lot of work into this project and got really lucky with conditions, so the relief we felt afterwards was something else. Not to mention we got to shower after being in tents for 3 weeks!" - Tim Van Der Krogt
Takewaway message from the film? "At the end of the day snowboarding and skiing are just about having fun, you don’t need much and you can find it in places you didn’t even imagine." - Tim Van Der Krogt
