Teton Gravity Research and Anthill Films reimagine the ultimate skier’s dream—a powder day—in mountain biking terms. Dirt falls from the sky like powder snow, while ecstatic riders play across a magical landscape. For riders Thomas Vanderham, Matty Miles, Ian Morrison, and Finn Iles, the Dirt Blizzard was something that they once could only dream about… until now. The filming of Dirt Blizzard can be described as a true climax in the history of action-sports cinematography. UnReal is being called the ultimate conjunction of athletic prowess and jaw-dropping cinematography, and no segment of the film highlights this better than “Dirt Blizzard”, a visual feast at the film’s end.
Every so often, an event happens in nature that is so profound, it belies the very foundation of reality. This is the stuff of legends and lore, a rare phenomenon that may only happen once in a lifetime. In order to witness such an event, we must suspend our judgement of what we think we know. We must let go, look to the sky, and believe.
