One of the breakout stars from the 2016 film season, Connery Lundin likes to go big. Which explains how he stood atop the podium as the 2015 Freeskiing World Tour champion, in addition to landing parts in Powder Productions’ and KGB Productions’ 2016 release, Monumental: Skiing Our National Parks, and Matchstick’s film, Ruin and Rose.
Originally from the Oakland, California, suburbs, Lundin grew up skiing Sugar Bowl and Squaw before attending CU-Boulder. There, after toiling to make the U.S. Ski Team, he elected to enter freeskiing comps, where he placed third in his first-ever big mountain contest. Eventually, he wound up in Jackson, Wyoming, augmenting his Tahoe style with the endless backcountry opportunities in the Tetons.
One of skiing’s good guys, Lundin, 27, now lives in Tahoe. He’s used this near-unprecedented Sierra storm to finish his 2016 season edit. So kick back and enjoy one of the year’s better edits from one of skiing’s up-and-coming stars.
