word! just thought id post some pics from the winter here, nothin too hectic just another season in the middle of nowhere...
we def had some issues here in pow central, dec was mad dry, made a bit of a low tide base layer but we dont have the continental climate to really facet it up, chrismis dumped and bridged that issue, then there was only really one big break early feb which grew the hoarfrost, and altho we often get numerous significant surface hoar layers in a season here, this one layer sure did its best to represent with big and huge slides as it got buried over and deeper....

we tuned into a new zone with steep alpine style chutes, but at treeline, good for low vis / fresh loading kinda days

when the V was buried with a metre plus it really was chaffin our buzz here, the paths were runnin over and over from different starts and each run came harder faster loggin timber and kinda seemed like a bit of a gamble just to get up a valley each day....

so we shredded the resort and the slacks besides

oops sorry there was a solid deck in there, and yeh skiers, i cant apologise for skiers anymore, dirt bags n riff raff, ya get what you deserve sometimes.... but sh!z ya cant just become a resort rat just cuz the CAA issues special warnings every weekend (except for the biggest dump, for some reason) so we went back out and found the snow quality was all time. resickulous! best ever.

Karkis kinda rules! or maybe it's just British Columbia. probably a little bit of both.

Nice photos anyways, and I hope you got your taxes figured out.

Sweeet! Nice Video and great work on the editing. I actually like the no music. Just get the sound of the moment.

And it was quality sound, not that annoying sound GoPro cams capture.
Really good footage and editing. I love how much uphill you put into it. It tells the story.
