What Went Down In The Whistler Backcountry This Week

What Went Down In The Whistler Backcountry This Week

It's springtime in Whistler and that means the snowmobile parking lots are packed to the tits and all the crews are out stacking footy in the sunshine. I decided to check in with as many crews as, well, I could find on my facebook feed and asked everyone for a photo and a few words. Here's what I got back!

Last week I had a gnarly sinus infection, and was battling some extra shitty filming luck. Geoff Brown convinced me to join him for a sesh and we ended up hitting Forum step-down, which I have passed over and over every year and have never hit. It was pretty sweet to finally hit this classic (even though the snow was garbage), and we both got shots!" Cab 9 screen grab from Geoff's go pro angle

2 days touring on the duffy lake with Dave B and Garry Pendygrasse

Did the spearhead traverse in a day and rode the N face of fitzsimmons  halfway through. It's the big shaded face on the far away shot (the run keeps going out of frame down the lower mellow slopes) and the close up (fitz is the bigger face on the right) sunset shot is on fissile at the end of that day. 11.5 hour day..

Following day did a solo tour to go ride the NW face of pattison, n face of trory (both of which are seen in the kinda cloudy photo) and the main face of decker.
