Can you spend an entire season just skiing backcountry out East? Can you make it happen only on the weekends? Ben Leoni, an attorney from Portland, Maine, thinks so. And the new web series, Working for the Weekend from Meathead Films, captures his story.
After an 11-year run of producing East Coast ski flicks, Vermont’s Meathead Films isn’t releasing a full-length feature this year. Instead, they’re putting their eggs in the webisode basket, launching a five-part series of backcountry-exclusive episodes. Without the urban jib footage that’s overloaded Meathead Films of late, the trailer captures a taste of the adventure, exploration, grit, powder and ice that are signature of backcountry skiing in the East. They’ll be releasing the five-part series beginning in December.
