Floating on snow

Beyond ski sport and skiing in prepared ski tracks and groomed slopes there are other stories about skis and skiing to tell. In ”Floating on snow” the focus is on original skiing with skis made for skiing on virgin snow. The making of skis and their historical functions in different cultures are explored, finding amazing connections between modern freeskiing skis and prehistoric skis. In the search for the origin of skis we meet old skiing cultures in the inner of Asia and the Sami contribution to ski history. The historic facts and stories from different cultures are embedded in pictures of skiing in various landscapes, all presented with a consistent visual language.
