Blue Tomato stands for team spirit and professionalism. Founded in 1988 Blue Tomato has developed into one of Europe’ s largest winter sport and fashion shops. We live and breathe our business, sport and lifestyle. We share our spirit and enthusiasm with our customers, colleagues and partners. Therefore, we are proud to collaborate with such a great project as Shades of Winter. The female athletes are handpicked professionals and mountain-addicts, such as we are at Blue Tomato.
The Shades of Winter project is one of the most interesting initiatives on the freeskiing scene. The core scene is dominated by male skiers, we believe supporting projects like this will change that and that’ s also why Peak Performance have a ski team where half of the riders are female. The professional attitude and highly set goals for this movie gives all the riders an opportunity to express themselves as skiers on the highest level. It is definitely something that will lead to many good things.

When passion meets fascinatino and performance, spectacular things happen.
Shades of Winter and its unique protagonists not only convince on the mountains but also with their personality. Theproject offers the exclusive opportunity to learn more about the person behind the athlete and the close friendships that were born around the world. This approach enables Shades of Winter a characteristic and exceptional profile and strikes a new path. Likewise BMW does with its freeride engagement. The new BMW X1 and the intelligent all-wheel drive system supports the shades of winter protagonists during their world tour and is the perfect companion to find the best snow on exceptional freeride hot spots.
Since years we have one of the best female teams in the freeski scene. It was always tricky to give them a spot in one of the movie productions. Most of the film companies have worked with one ore two women. For us was clear: freeskiing is not only a men’ s sport. We need the women on the mountains and we have the responsibility to give them the opportunity to ski in movies and show their best skiing. Then Shades of Winter was born and it was out of question for us to be part of this. Now we are in the third year of Shades of Winter and we are so happy and proud to be part of such a good project and idea.
