In partnership with Smith Optics, we’re thrilled to release The Process—featuring Emily Childs, Tonje Kvivik & Janelle Yip, aka The Blondes—which offers a glimpse behind the curtain at the amount of time, energy and hard work that goes into filming for a ski movie in the backcountry. From early mornings, to copious amounts of preparation and equipment, and the long and exhausting days that at times ensue, The Blondes discuss why enjoying the process of what they do helps make the eventual outcome that much more worthwhile.

See more of The Blondes in their two-year film project produced by CK9 Studios and presented by The North Face this fall.
