Baldface Lodge, nestled in interior British Columbia, is renowned for harboring some of the worlds finest powder. Except in December 2014, when the DPS crew arrived to make a short ski flick. At that point, things weren't quite so lovely. Fighting against record low-tide early season conditions under gray and grim skies, their best option was to take to the air-- building jumps, getting upside down, and making lemonade outta lemons. But finally, for one incredible day, the clouds dropped into the valleys, creating a stunning inversion, and at last offering access to a few sunny bigger lines. Proving that even the toughest trip can sometimes turn right side up.
