We can all agree that skiing requires focus, creativity, patience and exploration. As do many other favorable pastimes. For Jake Doan, those elements seems to come together the most in his life when he’s sliding on a pair of 4FRNT planks and plucking strings on his Fender guitar. In his latest edit, PARALLELS, filmed by Alex Mager, Doan beautifully finds common ground between his two greatest passions. PARALLELS is not only a ski edit chock-full of deep pow and backcountry booters but a soundtrack that downright soothes the soul. While we may not all be as talented as Doan on skis or the guitar, I’m sure we can all relate to finding parallels between skiing and something else.
