I'm really digging this series. Justin Lamoreaux from Squamish, can see 30 different peaks from his house in Squamish. He decides to find his way up to each of them and splitboard down. From sea-level.
Nice videos, amazing country. Those approaches are a mix of beauty and heinous thick shit. These guys need to get the snow caves going or just set up camps at altitude (survival shelters). I believe you can build and maintain small shelters in Canadian back country without permits as long as it is maintained for wayfaring strangers..Get on that guys
I was lucky enough to be the lagger one of the trips... You guys gotta understand, even just getting shots from this is amazing. Setting up the camera from another slope hundreds of meters away makes life a lot more interesting having to scope, then plan, then actual skinning / bootpacking / climbing just to setup the shot on top of the actual shot... and then being spread out from each other etc. etc.
I'm pretty stoked for these guys as this is a huge effort and monument to splitboarding and the Squamish b/c IMHO...
And yes this is a shameless plug for Justin and Kyle because simply put, nothing you can ever edit down to some youtube minutes will ever do the effort justice !!!

Unbelievable footage! Definitely tons of work to put this together, and very captivating to watch. Keep up the stoke! One of the main things I love about splitting is being able to get out to areas where others don't - especially if the spots are passed up because they're too much work for the investment....it makes it that much more rewarding!
