Just when you think you’ve seen it all, someone comes along and blows…you…away. Nicolas and Loris Falquet, a.k.a. the Falquet brothers, a.k.a. Huck and Chuck, have put together a deep powder skiing video that is so simple in concept — “Hey, what if the snow was colored?” — but is so off-the-hook insanely executed that I don’t even know how to describe it except in sputtering, inarticulate brobonics. Sick bird, dude, it’s just like so, you know, sick and stuff.
No, it really is. And what sounds like a gimmick actually results with a massive shift in perception: what if we lived in an alternative universe where the snow really was blue and orange and red? What if it wasn’t water snow, but, I dunno, rust snow? Or Kool-Aid snow? How would it chunk and disintegrate and reorganize itself? It’s kind of like adding smoke to wind tunnel tests so you can see the aerodynamics at play — I guarantee you that you’ve never seen snow like this.
