After successfully debuting The Wallisch Project on iTunes in 2013, Wallisch is at it again, releasing a new urban ski series on ESPN2, Good Company. The mini-series debuted on February 22, making it arguably the biggest televised event in street skiing’s young history.
Working in conjunction with filmer Kyle Decker, and longtime friend, filmer, and 4bi9 founder AJ Dakoulas, Wallisch is slated to release two additional episodes of Good Company, and eventually an all-inclusive movie available on iTunes according to European freeski website Downdays.eu.
Unlike The Wallisch Project, Good Company features a wider cast of rockstar urban athletes like Karl Fostvedt, Nick Martini, and Dale Talkington--to name a few. The edits also push the production value of urban skiing to new heights, including some of the sport’s first drone footage.
It’s a true departure from the early days of handheld SonyCams and choppy cut edits, but it’s a sign that urban skiing is growing up and gaining legitimacy in the ski world. Thanks to Good Company, street skiing will be in the living rooms of millions over the next few months, and whether you like it or hate it, it’s hard not to respect what Wallisch and grew are doing for their sport.
The first episode of Good Company is available on iTunes now.
