2010-2011 Season video, #1 and #2

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Vid #3 added

We can piss and whine about edge bevels, the merits of rockered skis, how awesome we are at skiing deep snow on dinky little 65 waist skis, OR we can get out off the couch and actually practice what we preach. Less hate, technique pickery and know-it-all-ism and more stoke is what this place needs.

 

Episode #1 is more about the process of finding snow to ski on in the preseason, thus the footage is all from September and October and is less about the actual turns, and more about the process of getting them. Sometimes it pays off, some times is doesn't but the journey is a fun one non the less.

Nov. / Dec. was best described as thin and generally unsupportive snowpack. I recall reports constantly whining about how crappy and unskiable conditions were, however we found the skiing in the 300 metre elevation band below treeline to be really quite good and enjoyable. Was a good time, and a few trips were done to Rogers Pass to get on to some thing a little more supportive to be able to get a few drops in here and there.

Could be that the title isn't too descriptive...? If you'd like it changed, let me know...

What would be more suitable do you figure? Perhaps Canada Rockies season trip report or some thing along those lines.... Change it to whatever suits your fancy.

Time2skin, thanks for posting these episodes.  You guys are living the dream (mine anyway). 

 

Love the time-lapse effects.  Keep posting and I'll keep watching,

 

I'm living vicariously large.
