Filmed on location at the Alyeska resort in Alaska, the Alaskan wilderness, and the Golden Alpine lodges in Canada, this incredible film of extreme skiing will light up your screens on October 19.

The 12-minute video was created to show off the color and light technology of Phillips Ambilight TV. To do so, the filmmakers created LED ski suits and let loose their pro skiers in the Alaskan and Canadian mountains.

Check out the gorgeous preview in the short teaser below.

“From the depth of the creative visuals to the groundbreaking, never-been-done-before scale of the shoot,” the team writes on their Vimeo page, “Afterglow is being hailed as one of the most cinematically profound ski movies ever made.”

The film shows night skiing at its finest, with lit-up skiers diving down the deep pillows and Alaskan spines, using a combination of aerial and ground-based film crews to create the killer footage.

You’ll be able to see the full 12-minutes of lit-up skiing this Sunday, October 19 at the Phillips TV website.
