It's that time of year again. Production houses large and small, point-and-shoot friends filming their friends, those iPhone and GoPro clips you saved, the stories of aspirational trips finally a reality. Now is the time when the hype is highest and the appetite is strongest for those winter moments. Films, video, articles, we want them all as we dream during the day and night for those mountain niches to fill with snow.
We put together a list of all the content where you'll see Strafe. We'll keep adding to it throughout the fall and let us know if we missed any!
Everyone's favorite fishing guide and Strafe athlete Blake Wilson is featured in the latest Faction Skis feature film: ROOTS.

Plus, with their grassroots film tour, you should be able to see the film on a big screen with your local community. Find a showtime near you.
In ROOTS, Blake and company take on the expansive Wyoming backcountry. If you like deep powder and big backcountry jumps, their segment won't disappoint.
