For this installment of Westward we returned home to Ontario to reunite with some friends and to showcase where the majority of the crew learned to ski. With some less than favourable conditions we were able to make it out to hit a few urbans around Barrie Ontario and go to Mt.St.Louis Moonstone to film some early season park. After a couple weeks in the homeland we returned to the west coast and made it to Whistler where we met up with Ahren, Jordan and James. After a long (well deserved) holiday, we bring you Westward Episode 3. Enjoy!
Longtime Jiberish snow Fam Tom Wallisch turned the freeskiing world upside down in 2007 with the edit he submitted for Level 1 productions "Superunknown" contest. He showcased an effortless and confident style of riding that had not been previously been seen.
5 years later we wanted to create a follow up to that edit so we enlisted the help of the very talented team at Stept Productions to shoot Tom at Breckenridge. Having the cinematography and editing match the level of riding was very important to us in planning this project. The toughest part was deciding what to cut to fit everything into a tidy 3 minutes.
We have always found common ground with Tom over the focus on style in every aspect of life. Enjoy the best park skier in the world doing what he does best.
It’s been one of those winters for most of North America. The snowstorms have been light and far between. Riders await, anxiously glued to the weather channel and their computer screens, hoping that big storms will start popping up in the 10 day forecast. Despite significant snowfall in the extreme northwest most of the US has had a worse start to the winter than most of us can remember.
Thanks to the terrain parks though, we are able to stay engaged, using the lack of powder as a perfect excuse to hone jib and jump skills. As the first major pacific storms of 2012 begin to roll in, we look back to the early season snowpack and fun laps with Jiberish Snow Fam Joe Mango, Matt Walker, Andrew Hathaway and Dash Kamp.
