Sculpted in Time: Short Films Feature Rockies’ Ski Spirit

This fall, we’re stoked about the launch of Sculpted in Time, a four–part web series produced by award-winning filmmakers Sherpas Cinema, featuring Banff National Park’s three ski areas (and a deep dive into the park’s backcountry!)

The initiative, by Banff Lake Louise Tourism, Ski Banff-Lake Louise-Sunshine and partners is the first of its kind—a compelling portrayal of unique stories shot on location in documentary form and edited in Sherpas Cinema’s renowned storytelling style. The films capture the deep spirit of skiing straight from the heart of the Canadian Rockies.

 

 

The first film to launch (on September 29) was The Wise Man—the emotive story of veteran skier Eddie Hunter’s personal connection with Banff National Park and Mt. Norquay, a mountain he has called home his entire life. Born in 1926, the same year Mt. Norquay was established, Eddie has been skiing Banff’s first ski resort for more than 80 years.

Next, keep an eye out for The Character, launching October 6 and featuring talented local skier Eric ‘Hoji’ Hjorleifson as he guides viewers through the dramatic landscapes of Lake Louise.

Launching October 13, The Artist exposes the incredible energy of the Canadian Rockies and how the colour, light and texture of the mountains around Sunshine Village inspire skiers and artists alike.

And to wrap up the series, The Innovator escorts viewers through the stunning backcountry to experience stepping into the unknown—told from the point of view of local backcountry ski enthusiast and wheelchair athlete Christian Bagg, who is a paraplegic. The Innovator, which launches October 20, shows how adventure can push our limits, test our resolve and plot our own “unknown”.
