The story of NZ Freeskiing

Sam Masters has 25 years of freeski photography, writing and film work to his name. He has carved a life out of big mountain skiing, remote snow adventures and ski storytelling. Sam is a master of putting into words the joy of deep pow turns, steep and scary terrain, and chasing the elusive first lines and fresh snow.

Sam will talk about his book The Story of New Zealand Freeskiing.  The book is a coffee-table chronicle of freeskiing in New Zealand, captured by some of our most talented snow sports photographers. Sam explains, “We’ve captured, condensed and committed New Zealand’s best ski photography to the page in a visual history of a sport whose playing fields create their own weather. You’ll find all the characters, mountains, technology, style and soul spread lavishly across 166 pages of full colour, hardcover-wrapped alpine goodness.”
