    What do you get when you take one of the worlds leading eyewear companies, combine it with a 900 acre backcountry training facility, and sprinkle in some of the worlds best skiers and snowboarders? Well, Prospecting Idaho of course!
    Deep in the wilderness of Idaho’s Sawtooth Range lies Smiley Creek Lodge, a small wilderness lodge/restaurant/outfitter. It is here that Smith has created the ultimate backyard park. 900 acres of former mining property make up what can only be described as every snow slider’s dream come true. The tailing piles from the mine make perfect landings for big kickers, kickers built by a big, bad Prinoth Snowcat. The upper “cirque” area has cliff drops, cornices, and windlips. The trees are thick and deep, and the back side has a seemingly endless expanse of sunny pow fields. What more could one ask for? How about an eight-person cat waiting at the bottom to zip you right back up to the top of the ridge. Produced by Smith Optics and Cory Smith, edited by Mark Oliver. Stay tuned for 12 fantastic episodes dropping mid-September.
