Promotional video for a ski mountaineering Trip to Bella Coola. Zach Guy, Michael Bestwick, and Chris Miller talk a little about themselves and the goal of the trip.
Our project is unique in that we will highlight avalanche awareness and conservative decision making while documenting our ski adventures. Aside from the fundamental skills and knowledge we have gained from time spent in the mountains, our team has a unique skillset that will enable us to promote backcountry safety from our experiences in the Coast Mountains. Team member Zach Guy holds a rare combination of both higher education and experience in the field of snow science and snow safety, Michael Bestwick is very experienced in glacial travel and has successfully completed alpine traverses in whiteout conditions, and Chris Miller is an accomplished photojournalist/media-specialist, enabling us to effectively document the team’s safety measures while captivating audiences with grandeur and excitement of ski mountaineering.
