The elements air, fire, water, and earth exemplify aspects of nature, and represent facets of the human experiences of inspiration, creation, reflection and grounding. These components can be a guide to our experiences of life, and are deeply connected to skiing and mountain biking.

Elemental, a new film directed and produced by Sage Cattabriga-Alosa as his first solo project of this scale, is presented by Atomic and The North Face, and supported by Giant Bicycles and Smith.
