We Heard You Need Gloves – Mad Trees

Mad Trees won the People’s Choice Award at the 2018 Mt. Baker Film Fest with their edit, “We Heard You Need Gloves.” Here’s an excerpt from the crew about the video:

Occasionally while sitting on one of Mt. Baker’s non-high speed fixed grip lifts, you will witness a rider send something or go fully underwater and emerge in a cloud of snow from a distance. Or maybe you are joining the backcountry donkey show on a high pressure aprés-storm mission and you see someone go for a huge backie off a cheese wedge step-down.

Oooh that kid backslapped super hard but he rode it out, I’d count it.

Then as you look a little closer, you see a purple jacket, maybe it’s teal. You think to yourself, maybe it’s just modern manhood, masculinity undone – is that…? I thought it was a dude.

Mad Trees presents We Heard You Need Gloves, a story of female athletes pushing and supporting each other over the course of a 844″ season.
