    Our addiction to mountains and rivers has always had us looking north to Alaska, where big fish and mountains existed on a level we had only experienced in our dreams. As the winter of 2012 continued to disappoint in the lower 48, it was obvious that Alaska was being buried in snow. It seemed like the time was right, that maybe after 10 years of "practice" in Utah, we were ready for our journey north. We hit the road in March, putting everything we had into our first and for all we knew, our last adventure to Alaska, with two things on our mind, steelhead and spines. We joined forces with three of our friends from Utah, for a ski-plane assisted camping expedition in the heart of south eastern Alaska's backcountry. Over 50 miles by wing from the nearest road, our pilot dropped the 5 of us off on a big lonely glacier encircled by jagged mountains, and in the spirit of adventure, wished us good luck. We would need it. From that point on, the feeling of being completely alone in a wild and unknown land for the first time in our lives penetrated every cell in our bodies. Only one person in our group had ever been to Alaska, Chris Coulter. On day 8 when he suddenly left to work in Haines as a heli guide, the feeling of isolation crept deeper into our minds, and it had never felt so good. We chose to do this trip without any guides, plans, itineraries, or rules simply because we wanted to have our own experience. We wanted it to be raw, unknown, and we wanted it to be an adventure. Of course the style we chose made things much more difficult for us than they could have been, but the feeling of accomplishment was immense. We found glorious spines to ride, and stumbled upon one of the best runs of wild Steelhead in the world. Returning home safely from our first journey to Alaska signified a successful mission, along with the wonderful new memories from the greatest riding and fishing experiences of our lives. www.facebook.com/provobros www.ianprovo.com www.neilprovo.com Big thanks to Outdoor Research, Orvis, Backcountry.com, Voile, and Smith Optics music: "Elephant" - Tame Impala "Golden" - Tired Eyes Music "Bicycle Bicycle" - Early B "Distant Time" - Tired Eyes Music "Such a Sky" - Tired Eyes Music "Shining Sun Riddim" - Riga / Hemp Higher Prod.

          In mid January of 2014 an arctic cold front set in over British Columbia, along with blue skies for the rest of the month. With a stable snowpack and good pow high up, the options for snowboarding seemed endless. It's not too often that you get to hike up and ride down just about anywhere with little concern for avalanches. I had been eying up this pillow line for over a year and it was the perfect time to give it a try. Many thanks to Ian Provo, Pete Alport and Daniel Rönnbäck for capturing the moment that day. http://www.neilprovo.com http://www.voile.com | http://www.outdoorresearch.com | http://www.smithoptics.com | http://www.backcountry.com | http://www.goalzero.com | http://www.dakine.com music: "Rock Stone" Stephen Marley Ft.

              As Cody Booth made his yearly migration to Alaska in search of untouched lines and epic powder – The weather was less then cooperative. Armed with a map and pending weather forecast a decision was made to head west…as far west as possible. The Aleutians were formed by volcanic reaction and to this day still host large active volcanoes; many with lines, couloirs and untouched possibilities. – An adventure to unbelievable to pass up for Thomas Delfino and Aspen Rain Weaver, who headed north to meet Cody in the wild frontier. Weather, grizzly bears, and a lack of amenities made this into one of the grittiest missions to date. The little town welcomed these unusual visitors but the surrounding terrain made no concessions, forcing the crew to get creative as they searched for first descents and fresh lines.

                      For nearly two decades, Jeremy Jones has traveled to Alaska in the spring to explore new zones. During these trips—which often require being dropped in remote areas by a bush plane—space comes at a premium. Consequently, Jeremy and Teton Gravity Research must carefully calculate the resources needed to support and film their expeditions. When selecting team members, they look for people who are as versatile as they are dependable. No one embodies this better than the crew’s camp cook. During expeditions to Alaska, the camp cook is tasked with more than making oatmeal. Essentially serving as the base camp manager, the cook assists with everything from melting snow for drinking water to belaying snowboarders during descents. As a result, these individuals tend to have “the most dialed mountain skill set around,” explains Jeremy. And as much as cooking over a camp stove is rewarding, Jeremy reveals that “The real payout for the cook is to shred.” During Jones’ most recent film projects, the crew’s camp cooks were especially strong riders. While filming for Further in Wrangell–St. Elias National Park, Canyon Florey turned heads with his descents. Similarly, Lucas Merli surprised Jones and his colleagues during a trip last spring to the Eastern Alaska Range to film for Higher. In addition to impressing the crew with his cooking, Merli satiated their appetite with his riding.
