FADE TO WINTER press release


CRESTED BUTTE, CO (August 18, 2015) – MSP Films, the most highly decorated ski film company in the world, proudly introduces FADE TO WINTER, the latest in a long line of groundbreaking films from the production powerhouse. The first exciting trailer for the film is now available at www.skimovie.com.

Following on the heels of the award-winning films MCCONKEY and DAYS OF MY YOUTH, MSP’s newest feature film highlights the top athletes of today and their unfaltering dedication to the sport of skiing. Even when faced with challenging weather and conditions, MSP’s all-star cast of skiers dug deep within themselves to find the best in each experience. “It is just skiing, after all,” says executive producer Murray Wais, “and this roster of skiers that we’ve assembled for FADE TO WINTER takes the same pleasure in a day on the hill as you or I do.”

MSP’s 23rd annual ski film focuses on fun, because that is what skiing is all about – first-timers and professionals alike share that same mentality. Whether chasing deep powder in Japan, ripping with local groms in New England, searching for new lines in Alaska, or building backcountry jumps in Iceland, every aspect of this compelling new film showcases the inner spirit of every skier’s burning desire to get out on the snow.

FADE TO WINTER, filmed and edited in cutting-edge 4K ultra high definition, utilizes the latest camera technology to capture every beautiful detail with crystal clarity. Furthermore, the athletes – many of whom are new to the MSP roster this year – bring a variety of skiing styles to the film. Markus Eder, Bobby Brown, Michelle Parker, Mark Abma, Tanner Rainville, Aaron Blunck, James Heim, Sean Jordan, PK Hunder, and others make up the all-star cast.

This film would not have been possible without the support of MSP’s dedicated partners. FADE TO WINTER is presented by Under Armour, with support from Head Skis, Freeskier Magazine, Sony Action Cam, The Climate Reality Project, Jaybird, and Avatech. “We are very excited about our new partnership with the top producer in action sports, and FADE TO WINTER is the perfect film to kick off this Under Armour/MSP relationship,” says Steve Metcalf, Outdoor Performance marketing director at Under Armour.

FADE TO WINTER will debut at the Paramount Theatre in Denver, CO on October 10th to kick off a worldwide film tour. Additional information about the digital and home video releases can be found at www.skimovie.com.
