In 2013 we met up with author/ marketer Mike McPhee and did some filming up a Island Lake lodge located just outside of the legendary Ski town Fernie B.C. We met up with him also to discuss his book for an upcoming article and have the rare opportunity to ride with him.

A inspiring book authored by Mike McPhee and Mark Gallup called: Bears Above the Valley is a must read to start your season. This amazing historical book found on Amazon at:

Island Lake Lodge is one of the most iconic Catskiing locations in the world. We hit it on an "average"( cough cough) day in the backcountry in their terrain.

Kicking this season off with a tribute to some amazing reading to get your stoke on and a little pow pow....
