#skigoodmoneywillcome: the mantra that created a movement.

You know you’ve made it big when you land your own documentary. That’s where the Legs of Steel crew found themselves in 2014 as they extended their run as Europe’s premiere freeski film crew. However, not everything was as it seemed, as filmmaker Hersha Patel discovered.

2014: Over the past few years, the Legs of Steel crew have established themselves as some of the most unique and exciting skiers in the game through a string of incredible films.

Naturally, it’s time for a mockumentary. Indeed Productions takes you inside the team house and introduces you to the flesh and blood men behind the sick backcountry riding and incredible end-segment jumps. They aren’t exactly what you might be expecting, but that’s part of the fun. Brace yourself for the hard rocking, park killin’, business deal makin’, glamour shot takin’, hashtag inventin’ boys of the Legs of Steel. And always remember: If you ski good, money will come. Maybe.
