Hey guys Crest Pictures was kind enough to put the entire Freerider film online and I wanted to extend it to the Splitboarding community. This project was a total blast and I hope that it can inspire individuals to look at our sport in a different light. If anyone has any questions in general feel free to contact me @ Kylemiller411@gmail.com





"The temperature was below zero, the winds were light and the snow was shin deep with nothing firm lurking underneath. I had dreamed of this day for years. We were alone without any wind and below us was going to be some of the best turns of our life. The snow stayed consistently soft for the entirety of the run, riding 4600 feet to the White River crossing before stopping. In total we hiked over ten miles, 5400 feet and 13 hours for a single run." ~ Kyle Miller

Crest Pictures is pleased to announce the release of their latest production, FreeRider, a short film about splitboard mountaineer Kyle Miller. FreeRider is a documentary chronicling Miller's passion for his sport, his great love of the wilderness and mountain scenery, his ski bum lifestyle, his triumphs and disappointments, his pain and his joys, and his unyielding dedication towards fulfilling his riding dreams. Each season Miller sets a high bar for himself. In 2010, he successfully climbed and rode all 25 volcanoes in the Western United States. Last season he went for and completed Washington’s 10 highest peaks while the cameras rolled during the filming of FreeRider.

FreeRider had its world premiere on December 9, 2010 at the 7th International Free Ride Film Festival in St-Lary-Soulan, France. We were very proud to be one of the sixteen freeriding films to compete in this elite event. And, pretty stoked too! Kyle was on hand to introduce the film to a packed theater.

FreeRider had its U.S. premiere on Friday, Feb 3, 2011 at the Seattle Mountaineers in front of the hometown crowd.

For details about these and other upcoming screenings see FreeRider at: crestpictures.com/freerider

Please don't hesitate to contact us about screenings in your town too. Email: crestpictures@frontier.com

Sweet flick Kyle :thatrocks: Wish I could have made the premiere in WA. Thanks for the stoke. I'd tell you to keep it up, but I know you're love for the mountains will do that for you!

I feel humbled and inspired after watching this video. I was disappointed when it ended... " Damn it! I want my chocolate milk"

I wanted you to have your chocolate milk too. You deserved it! haha :clap:
