After 10 years of Salomon Freeski TV and 6 seasons of Salomon Running TV, Salomon is launching Salomon TV. That's a lot of Salomon I know. As the brand continues to grow, the content continues to diversify and as a part of the Switchback Entertainment team I am really excited by the prospects ahead that will allow us to work outside of just the snow sports domain.
This past season I was personally fortunate to travel to Italy to film an episode on the new Skyway Tram, work with the legendary trail runner Kilian Jornet in Norway, and realize a trip that I have imagined for a long time: to venture to Greenland with a scientist to learn more about how the climate is changing and ideally contribute to enhancing that understanding. We brought glaciologist and climate scientist Alun Hubbard, a character in the BBC Frozen Planet series, who conducted ice core surveys and found some troubling evidence of melting on the Greenland Ice Sheet at high elevations in the accumulation zone that may be contributing to faster than projected global sea level rise. Beyond the learning and the skiing, Alun proved to be one of the most interesting human beings I have ever met and a great character. The film will be premiering at the Banff Mountain Film Festival in November before releasing online on Salomon TV.
