Feeling tempted by the early season snow? We know it’s a tease to the nearing winter and only leaves you aching for more. Beyond maxing out your credit card with new gear and binging on ski movies, here’s another tonic that we hope will ease your anticipation for the upcoming season. Ladies and gents, we present Trailer Park Jams, a playlist compiled of songs featured in this year’s ski film trailers.
Let these tunes be the motivation to thrown down that extra set of squats in your pre-season training. Let them be the last thing you hear before drifting into dreams of powder finer than Columbian drug lords can produce. And come winter, hopefully this list will be the foundation for a soundtrack that gives you just enough hyphy to send that cliff and stomp that line.
