Beans & Rice Freeride Trailer Drops

Sep. 26th 2013

September 18, 2013 – The first snow of the season fell on the Tetons last night. It glimmers atop Taylor Mountain like the icing on a freshly baked cake. Winter is coming–the season of ski swaps, wood chopping, and ski movie premiers.

Jake Sakson and I will be adding to the ski season hype this fall by releasing a webisode trilogy documenting our season exploring the Tetons. Last year we decided to team up, buy a camera, create a website, and document our take on backcountry freeriding. Full disclosure–neither of us have much experience behind the lens. We were both introduced to backcountry ski filming through skiing with Powderwhore and Sweetgrass Productions, but we were always in front of the camera. It seemed simple enough; find some good snow, good lighting, ski through it and catch it on camera. Hit repeat and BAM! You have a ski movie.

SCARPA Athletes Star in Powderwhore’s Breaking Trail

Sep. 9th 2011

Utah-based Powderwhore Productions have outdone themselves again this year with the release of their latest flick, Breaking Trail.

Previously filming tele-only skiers, this year they’ve included athletes that ride other modes of transportation including split-boards and AT equipment. This year, SCARPA athletes Andy Jacobsen, Andrew McLean, Noah Howell & Paul Kimbrough get to show their skills in the backcountry.

While they promise there will be “no shots of helicopters filming other helicopters or hankie-clad 16-year-olds hepped up on energy drinks spinning to rap music” we still can’t wait to see the fresh faces, fresh tracks and waist deep pow that we hope Mother Nature will again drop on us this season.
