Late last spring, newly minted Freeride World Tour champion Arianna Tricomi convened a group of her best ski buddies for a crew adventure to the remote fishing village of Bergsfjord in Norway’s far North. In Bergsfjord, a town accessible only by boat, Ari and friends enjoyed what looks like the best possible way to cap off a ski season: a few weeks of touring around a spectacular landscape where the mountains rise straight from the sea, and the daylight lasts all night. (Hence, “la luce infinita.”)

“La Luce” is worth a watch not just for its spectacular scenery and down-home vibe, but for the great skiing from Ari and her crew, who dive into beautiful freeride lines and backcountry booters with equal enthusiasm. This isn’t your everyday freeride film, nor it is it your banger-stuffed freeski edit. It’s just a little story about a group of friends going skiing, and doing what comes naturally.

In this case, “what comes naturally” means hopping onto a boat for a quick ride to access perfect spring-corn lines on the mountain flanks above the fjords, basking in the endless hours of light, then returning home to the Bergsfjord Lodge for a soak in the wood-fired hot tub and maybe a light-night jam session.

In the new issue of Downdays magazine, Ari tells us that the trip to film “La Luce Infinita” wasn’t “gnarly” or “crazy,” but just good plain fun — ten friends out in the middle of nowhere, enjoying each other’s company and the joy of skiing in a beautiful new place. In other words, the stuff that ski dreams are made of.

“It was great to be in nature and share this experience with my best friends,” Ari says. “The smiles after every run in this landscape and this unbelievable light—it stays light for so long and we were so excited to ski that we didn’t even know if it was day or night anymore.”

“For two weeks we were living a timeless existence. We cooked together, partied, enjoyed the scenery and did a ton of skiing. It was very authentic and good for the soul. I took over the organizational part, and Marco Tribelhorn did the creative stuff, the filming and the story.”

“I hope that ‘La Luce Infinita’ reflects the wonderful vibes from this trip. I’d be very glad to bring more projects like this to life in the future.”
