White Gold Webisodes and Interview with Phil Yribar of 208 Productions

November 1, 2017 |

Traditional films can be hard to get to the masses.  I would rather have many people see the work I put so much time into than just a few because the rewarding part is making someone feel an emotion watching a video and getting them excited for the season or making them want to ride.  With how the Internet is now, there are so many great platforms to showcase the webisodes, and “White Gold” will be free to watch on YouTube.Read More

A Look Back at the Last Ride of Spring

October 8, 2017 |

Like most spring days, as the hour hand moved past noon the deep, almost-pow turned closer to the consistency of wet cement. Clint and I kept going. It wasn’t really any harder to move with my 165”, but Miller was full pin everywhere on his 146”. We made pulls through the trees, sidehills, popped off pillows of snow and rode some fun creekbeds to end the day.Read More

Yup spring has arrived! We are losing snow pretty quickly in the valley now, but the alpine conditions around the coast are still killer. Freezing levels are rising but it’s been staying cool above 1600m the past couple of days and will continue to sit around that level.Read More

Spring time conditions may be lurking around the corner… The valley sure is starting to show its true spring colors, you know, brown. But it’s white up top.Read More

Would you like a slice of pineapple with that? We just got our first warm wave of the spring season conditions. Before Tuesday, we got a good amount of fresh pow.Read More

Old man winter strikes again.

These cycles of dumps followed by sunshine; holayyyyy we are lucky! With luck comes being snow smart, so please play safe out there! We received some good amounts of snow over the weekend, about 50-70cm in Whistler and a less in Pemberton: only about 30cm. And… we’re about to get hit by another mega dump!Read More

There have been some traces of new snow in the higher alpine last weekend, but we now going in to a clear, high pressure cold system until the end of the week.There is still good snow to be found deep and far in the backcountry, but it is getting settled fast.Read More

As far as the snowpack goes, 30cm of new wet snow fell on a variety of different unstable surfaces (melt freeze crust, sun affected slopes, wind slabs, etc). That combined with a spike in temperature = danger.  I wouldn’t be surprised to see a ton of natural avalanches—hopefully no human triggered ones—in the next day or so out there.Read More
