    This is a video made for the Know the Snow Contest Submission. The Northern California 2013-2014 snow season was less than optimal and our local ski park did not receive enough snow to open for the winter. Luckily Mt. Shasta provides many skiing options at higher elevations. The majority of our skiing is done in the backcountry and being a Daddy, Husband, Friend, and so forth, I have a great respect for the dangers snow can pose. For me, the process of learning about the snow is never ending. It stays on my mind year round and I try to keep skills and knowledge fresh by constantly reading and practicing. This video is a story of that unending process. All footage was shot between December 2013 and March 2014. It shows how bad the severe drought conditions are in California. Thank you to my great friend, Jason Allen, for helping with the video footage. The footage was shot using a GoPro Hero +, Go Pro Hero 2, a Canon Elph 300S, and a Olympus Stylus TG-830.

        A video I've made of my life in the backcountry of my home province of British Columbia. Please click the HD button to watch it properly Thanks to my sponsors for the support over the past few years: www.dynastar.com www.mountainhardwear.ca www.smithoptics.ca www.revelstokemountainresort.com / www.selkirk-tangiers.com And a huge thanks to Dan Croll for coming up with this fitting song called "From Nowhere" I read that he came up with this song in the winter month of January. With all the Go Pro footage I used, the lyrics "every time I look into your eyes" just seemed fitting. If you like the tune please visit: http://www.dancroll.com/Dan_Croll/HOME.html The time lapses were made using my Canon 7d, an intervalometer and some pro lenses - Not my GoPro which some people might think. Thanks to all who watch, like and leave comments. You are the stoke in my fire.

        • A Tuckerman Tradition


          from Zach Ornitz / Added

          Tuckerman Ravine, located on the eastern slope of New Hampshireʼs Mt. Washington, is considered by many to be the epicenter of the New England skiing tradition. For nearly 100 years, people have made their annual pilgrimage to this backcountry skiing destination. Jeff Leich, Executive Director of the New England Ski Museum offers some historical insight: “The first party on skis that thereʼs any record of in Tuckerman Ravine was a Dartmouth Outing Club group in 1913. In the 1930s, ski racing found a home on the mountain and in 1937 the first Giant Slalom in the United States was held in the ravine." What makes Tuckermanʼs Ravine and skiing in the area so special? Why has it remained a rite of passage for so many generations of skiers and backcountry enthusiasts? My premise is that beyond spectacle of the weekend party scene, it is the tradition and link to skiing history that adds to the allure of “Tuckʼs.”

          • My first on-snow test of the Tech toe-telemark heel (TTS) system! Evolutionary leap or dead end - we shall see...

            A couple of laps on Mt. Seymour (Vancouver) giving the Dyna-teles their shakedown ski. In general, they skied fabulously. They are very active as currently set up. Perhaps too active for my tastes... We'll see how they ski in powder. A fun day out though! As tested: Dynafit Speed toe, Mark Lengel TTS riser/pivot, G3 springs/heels, F1 boots (will also test with TX-Pros) and Head Monster im95 skis.

                  Synopsis: Vasu Sojitra lost his right leg to a blood infection at 9 months old. Rather than letting his disability define him, Vasu has always treated his amputation as a mere hiccup in life. “Out on a Limb” profiles Vasu's inspiring story and follows him as he ventures deeper into the backcountry to summit peaks, drop into avalanche zones, send cliffs, and ski deep powder lines, all completely unassisted. This outdoor short film leaves audiences wanting more and asks us to reflect on the obstacles in our own lives.

                    Tested the Sony Action Cam last weekend and smashed the footage together to a single edit. It´s really the first helmet/Action cam that I have used but it felt great and + for the 1/4 camera mount screw. Really liked the 720p/120fps video mode. Settings I used on this edit are 720p/120fps and 720p/60fps Music: Thriftworks - Riding Alone at Dawn (SAB collab)
