… there’s something special about watching a snowboarder in a wide open bowl, ripping massive turns in powder. The first time I saw that, it almost got me to switch over. Seeing a rider completely laid out, shoulder almost touching the snow as they carve a wide, fast, deep turn is pure magic. It conjures images of big wave surfing and long barrels in the South Pacific. Maybe that’s what draws them…it’s a little more loose and free than skiing. No poles, less gear and just you, surfing your way down a mountain.

In March 2015 Mark McMorris, Mikkel Bang and Nicolas Mueller took to Last Frontier Heliskiing’s Coast Mountain playground to shoot a segment for Mark’s first film: In Motion.
