Lappland by The Bunch

Lappland by The Bunch

“Lappland by The Bunch” is the first video from the Swedish Revision Skis crew, including five Revisionaries who all are brothers of The Bunch. Lappland is the name of the northern region of Sweden where this video was filmed, which is also known as “The last wilderness of Europe”.

Our trip to Lappland was calming and a great change of pace as we were able to absorb this peaceful, natural location. We hope you enjoy this video full of speed variations accompanied by music reflecting the experience of the wilderness seen through the eyes of our riders. Expect the unexpected and keep an open mind. Take your time while watching this video, and you’ll get to re-live the Northern wilderness in a dreamy way.

Featuring riders Leo Björklund, Sakarias Majander, Erik Pousette, Douglas Källsbo, and Tobias Sedlacek.

About Lappland

Lappland is a vast, magical, ever-changing place where it can go from -40 C in the winter to +30 C in the summer. Considered Europe’s last wilderness and home to Europe’s only indigenous people, the Sami, this is the land of eight seasons.  A place where you can also experience both the Northern Lights and the Midnight Sun. Swedish Lapland is filled with vast forests of pine and spruce, powerful rivers that provide drainage from the snow-covered fells and peaceful lakeside villages that are found among the hills. One quarter of Sweden’s surface area is located in Lappland. While it covers a vary larger portion of surface area, it is still a far trek to reach the region for many of Sweden’s citizens. The appeal of experiencing pure nature first hand is what draws visitors to make the sometimes long trip to this vast and sparsely populated region of Sweden.

Powder Skiing Loveland Pass

Powder skiing Loveland Pass, Colorado is an absolute blast when your making car laps and getting fresh tracks with your friends.  Chris McKeever and friends have been getting after the powder skiing at Loveland Pass on their Subtraction powder skis this season. We hope you enjoy this video, which gives a great look at the ski conditions at the pass.

If powder skiing Loveland Pass is one of your goals, you’re in luck because the access is relatively easy and it is one of the best worst-kept secrets in backcountry powder skiing. To get the goods, you take Interstate 70 West to exit 216 and merge onto US 6 West toward Loveland Pass. Then you continue for 4.7 miles to the upper parking lot. The lower lot is located on the lefthand side on the third tight turn.

Car pooling with your crew is the most efficient way to manage powder skiing at the pass. That allows you to not have to worry about the waiting involved with hitching rides to the top. If you plan to ski the pass on the weekends, it will be a bit busier. This makes it easier to hitch rides, but you will also have to deal with more of a crowd on the terrain. Weekdays are typically a little less busy, which may lead to a little longer wait time for hitching rides. Ultimately, the best plan is to go with a group of experienced friends on a weekday in order to take full advantage.

Powder skiing at Loveland Pass, Colorado is characterized by terrain suited for many different preferences and levels of riding. Big lines, cornices, and chutes are there for the taking in the Western bowl and beyond. Or if your looking for low angle terrain, you can access it by dropping in closer to the road on the North side, or by taking a South/South-Eastern line on the West side of the road. Please note – with easy backcountry access comes responsibility. It’s important to make sure that you are a confident, well trained, experienced backcountry skier and that the other members of your group are as well.

Danny Arnold

Danny Arnold spent last season living in Whistler, British Columbia and traveling around BC. Here is Danny’s season edit with a bunch of great powder skiing and big lines in Fernie, Whistler, and Revelstoke.

While Danny was living in Whistler, he supported his skiing lifestyle by working at a hostel. When Danny wasn’t working, he was taking advantage of the vast terrain at (and near) Whistler Blackcomb. Whistler Blackcomb is located 75 miles north of Vancouver and is considered the largest ski resort in North America.  It is 50% larger than the next largest competing resort and also features the iconic Peak 2 Peak gondola which transports skiers from the top of Whistler and Blackcomb mountains. The Peak 2 Peak gondola holds two world records – it is the highest cable car above ground and the longest unsupported span between two cable car towers.

 

Whistler Blackcomb is situated in the Fitzsimmons range of the Coast Mountain range in BC, Canada. It is located on the north western edge of Garibaldi Provincial Park. Whistler was originally called London Mountain because of the frequent fog at low elevations. Consistently ranked as the top resort in North America, more than 2 million people visit annually. Whistler Mountain has a vertical of 5,020 feet and a skiable area of 4,757 acres. Blackcomb Mountain has a vertical of 5,133 feet and a skiable area of 3,414 acres. The longest runs at both Whistler (Burnt Stew) and Blackcomb (Green Road) are 6.8 miles long. Whistler Blackcomb is a large enough resort that they have terrain options for any type of skier.  Options abound for skiing legendary chutes, steeps, cliffs, couloirs, high alpine, powder filled bowls, gladed trees, and flowing groomers.

Whistler also has a wide variety of summertime activities and is famous for the Whistler Bike Park.  The bike park is world class and draws both amateur and professional mountain bikers from around the world.  Other summer activities include camping, hiking, bungee jumpingglacier skiing, and more.

Catskiing Canada

After a few months of somewhat hit or miss conditions here in the states, we were ready to go catskiing in Canada. The Trimmings crew along with the Revision Skis crew packed up and rallied north to go to the Canadian promise land. As we pulled up to the lodge at Fernie Wilderness Adventures (FWA), the snow had been hammering down all afternoon and we knew instantly that we would not be disappointed. Located in the northern Rockies, Fernie Wilderness Adventures’ catskiing Canada paradise has over 5,000 acres of gladed meadows, pristine pillow fields, and endless tree skiing. Serviced by two large passenger snowcats, and a handful of the happiest employees I’ve ever met, we knew we were in the right place. After day one, the common phrase repeated by everyone on the trip became, “I’ve never experienced that before!” Whether we were describing the bottomless powder, the amazing terrain, or the guides who couldn’t have been more accommodating, FWA had literally everything we could have asked for. Each day began with a delicious hot breakfast cooked by the staff before we piled into the snowcat and headed straight up to 7000 ft. Our options seemed endless plowing up and over knife ridges through blower pow as we hung our heads out the cab windows in anticipation of our next run choked with the lightest snow any of us have ever experienced. Each day was concluded with countless high-fives, a huge feast, and a soak in the wood-fired hot tub complimented by a few ice cold beers. After four days of living the life of luxury, reluctantly, it was time to part ways and return to our own lives. It goes without saying that we will, without a doubt, be returning next season to pick up where we left off! Thanks again to the entire staff at FWA for showing us the goods!

Hand-Drag Cork 360 Video from British Columbia

This hand-drag cork 360 video is from last winter when we went on a snowcat skiing trip in British Columbia, Canada. We had a blast skiing deep, untracked powder while testing out Subtraction prototype skis. We were pretty nervous leading up to our trip as it had been a season with very little snowfall.  A week before the trip we were considering cancelling and rescheduling for the following ski season.  We ended up deciding to go on the trip as planned and hope for the best.  To our suprise, the weather unexpectedly turned in our favor on our drive up from Montana.  When we arrived at the snowcat skiing lodge in British Columbia, it was a full on storm.  The next morning we woke up to some of the deepest snow any of us had experienced in our lives.  The snow kept falling over the next few days and nights. We were skiing insanely deep powder for the entire trip and ended up scoring lots of great video and photo.

Snowcat Skiing in British Columbia, Canada

Do you dream of taking catskiing laps in the backcountry of British Columbia?  There are a lot of great snowcat skiing operations that can guide you safely in large, uncrowded powder skiing tenures. If your looking to ski some deep powder in BC and land your first hand-drag cork 360, a good starting off point for learning about the many lodges and operators is Catskiing Canada.
