    Black Diamond athlete Noah Howell had to scramble a bit when his Canadian ski trip was scuttled at the border. Howell and the Powderwhore film crew quickly regrouped, however, and landed in an idyllic spot tucked away in the Washington Cascades. Here is a short report from his trip and the video he edited together. ========================================================================= Winter in the Wasatch has been a bit below average. We've had some great days and some dry spells. In an effort to find new terrain and quell the never ending hunger for fluff, the Powderwhore crew headed north to Canada. We were quickly turned back at the border, but that's another story.  In travels and life it's good to have a plan B. We found ourselves near the Cascades and that seemed like a better option than the 15 hour drive home. Two years ago some friends had ventured into the very remote Holden Village on Lake Chelan. Very little info about skiing in this area could be found. The intrigue of this Lutheran retreat and the 9" of new snow were all we needed to lure us in.

      This day had a bit of everything; face shots, an avalanche, running into a snow wall and lots of high fives. The snow was funky and fell upside down but it was still one hell of a day. Entirely shot on the Drift HD Ghost, find it here: http://store.driftinnovation.com

        Despite the underwhelming winter of 2011-12, in which snowfall reached near record lows and unstable avalanche conditions,the Powderwhores were able to make the most of the conditions at home and abroad, with trips to Cerro Castillo, Chile; La Grave, France; the Antarctic Peninsula; Svalbard, Norway; Mount Foraker, Alaska; British Columbia, Canada, and the Wasatch Mountains in Utah. The film features an array of characters from salty backcountry veterans to some of the top skiers and snowboarders, including Chris Davenport, Jake Sakson, Andrew McLean, Seth Wescott, Dylan Freed, Noah Howell, Matt Reardon, Drew Stoecklein, Forrest Coots, Ian Provo, Neil Provo, Chuck Mumford, Darrell Finlayson, Bob Athey, PY Leblanc, Jason Thompson,Todd Stuart and Hugo Harrison. “Remember the classic Choose Your Own Adventure books? We are playing with that theme for delivering this ski odyssey.” says Powderwhore athlete and founder Noah Howell. “Our interest lies in finding exotic locations and people with real stories and objectives. We wanted to tag along and capture their actions and motivation for heading into the mountains. It’s more of an authentic experience this way. Instead of a staged video shoot we arranged, we traveled light and moved fast to avoid interfering with the actual adventures unfolding.” Chris Davenport joined the filming while on a boat on the Antarctic Peninsula. “I have had the opportunity to ski on the Antarctic Peninsula three times and it has quickly become one of my favorite places in the world for ski mountaineering,” Davenport says. “I love life on the boat, and the easy access to incredible ski terrain make it hard to beat. Throw in the amazing wildlife and gorgeous ocean views and you have a location second-to-none for the new film ‘Choose Your Adventure.’” In the end, this is a feature-length ski film that celebrates exotic locations, wild adventures, and the dedicated personalities writing their own stories in snow.

            In this interview the Howell brothers give a little history on where Powderwhore came from and give a few glimpses into their latest endeavor "Television". Powderwhore released their debut telemark movie, PW05, in the fall of 2005. They have since gone on to produce a full-length powder feature every year since then and solidify themselves as the Tele Kings of Powder. Shot and edited by J.T. Robinson Produced by Josh Madsen & Telemark Skier Magazine
