Scenes from Westward Episode 1.

What started with a camcorder and a couple friends making hippy turns on freeheel gear in the Wasatch backcountry evolved into a 10-year run of the much loved ski film company for the every man, Powderwhore Productions. In episode 1 of Westward, Jonah Howell, one of the founders of Powderwhores, explores the roots and rebelliousness of the Whores, the dedication it takes to make a ski film each season, and the eventual end of the “company,” if you can even call it that. The Powderwhores may be gone, but they are not forgotten. Their celebration of the fun of skiing, especially when exploring the backcountry, can still be felt. Season 2 of Westward is proudly supported by Flylow Gear, Oskar Blues Brewing Company, Rocky Mountain Underground, and SCARPA. Watch the full video below. Then check out Jonah’s latest project Gear Gospel, an in-depth resource for all your backcountry gear.
