The Provo Bros - Mining powder at Retallack, British Columbia

"During the winter of 2011, my brother Neil and I were presented with a once in a lifetime opportunity. We were to spend two months embedded in the heart of the Kootenays at the legendary Retallack Lodge. The mission was to shred pow with our good friend Tanner, who was on his comeback, and to help film Retallack: The Movie for Inspired Media Concepts." Ian Provo

Provo Bros- Uinta summer solstice 2011

Utah has had one of the most incredible seasons in history and it's not over just yet.  On the summer solstice Ian and I made a trip to the High Uinta Wilderness to ride off some of the highest peaks in the state. The Uintas have the most alpine terrain in the lower 48, the skiing is vast and seemingly untapped.

Retallack : The Movie - Official Trailer

Here is the trailer for the new ski movie I worked on this past winter with Inspired Media Concepts. I did lots of Snowboarding, and mostly filming. 90% of the runs I took in BC I had a big camera pack on my back which made for some rowdy tumbles down the steep terrain.  Stoked to see all the hard work everyone put in start to come together. Its going to be a righteous movie! Releases August 1st 2011.

The Provo Bros - Lone Peak - Utah - May 25th 2011

The north east face of Lone Peak is one of Utah's classic descents.  At 1:30 am we climbed out of the salt lake valley and began the 6000ft march to the top. A dizzying 6 hours later and we were looking down the majestic north east face with our skis and board in hand.

Pfeifferhorn skiing & snowboarding - May 1st 2011

AKA, "Little Matterhorn", is a nice little shark tooth of a mountain. Easily recognized by its similarity to the famous peak in the Alps, its the 5th highest in the Wasatch. On May 1st, it was not our original objective, but the unexpected sun forced us to bail on a more exposed line down the road.

We were equally stoked on the new mission, and the incredible powder it would deliver for the first day of May. 

Snurf Ya Later - The Provo Bros ~ December thru January 2011

Recovering from broken legs last march, there was no better way to get back into boarding then Pow surfin'.   When you free up the bindings, all the stress and pain goes away.  Ian and i used to snowskate every preseason for the last 10 years and it grew into a hobby far beyond an early season only activity.   This year we got some amazing boards built, and for the first time really got to surf the snow!  Here is a video we made from the last 2 months "snurfin" around the Utah backcountry...

Southern Utah Desert Spines- March 15th-17th 2010

An incredible trip my brother Ian and I took to the high plateaus of southern Utah.  They had an amazing snowpack down south, one of the best in years.

The red rock and fresh snow made for the most unique snowboarding experience in my life!

Mt Superior UT 2010

On March 1st 2010 I went for my fist full moon sunrise tour in the Wasatch. Forrest Shearer, Julian Carr, Todd Ligare and I left the alta parking lot at 4am with our goal being Cardiac Ridge by sunrise. Moon light sparkling on the snow for the hike was amazing. The line i had chose on cardiac turned out to be a bit different then i had expected, and i almost landed on some sharp rocks! ...Close call!
