On his journey from dishwashing ski bum at Alta to internationally known ski hero, Sage Cattabriga has established himself as one of the sport’s most humble, down-to-earth rippers with a wonderfully imbalanced talent-to-ego ratio. Now for the first time, we get to experience Sage as a filmmaker as well in “Elemental,” his first major solo film project.
The elements air, fire, water, and earth exemplify aspects of nature, and represent facets of the human experiences of inspiration, creation, reflection, and grounding. These components can be a guide to our experiences of life, and are deeply connected to skiing and mountain biking.
ELEMENTAL is presented by Atomic, and The North Face, supported by Giant Bicycles, and Smith.
It is directed and produced by Sage Cattabriga-Alosa and his first solo project of this scale.
Featuring skiing from: Lucas Wachs, Mitchell Brower, and Jonah Williams.
Featuring biking from: Adam Craig, with cameos from Eliot Jackson, Kyle Jameson, Carson Storch, Reed Boggs, and Dusty Wygle.
