Video: Spencer Milbocker Park City Laps

Spencer Milbocker Park City Laps

A week ago, Mike Kvackay traveled from Denver to Salt Lake City to film with Spencer Milbocker. Spencer and Mike made the quick trip from Salt Lake City to Park City to film laps on their early season park setup. They filmed for just under 4 hours the first day and knocked out quite a few tricks. After snowing about 8 inches in Salt Lake City that night, they drove back up to Park City in the morning to find fresh snow at the resort. Spencer and Mike decided to get a few more park shots before putting the camera down to enjoy the fresh snow while exploring the rest of the mountain. It was a fun and productive two days.

Advance Ski Movie

While filming the Advance ski movie, we spent the last season chasing snow with friends in both the backcountry and the streets. We had some deep days cat skiing with our friends at Fernie Wilderness Adventures, where the snow always seems to hit for us.  Our time at Grand Targhee was great as well, but we weren’t as lucky on the weather. Other legs of the trip while filming included street skiing in Sweden and Russia, along with a bunch of other great spots across the Western states. Hit play, sit back, and enjoy the Advance ski movie, featuring skiers Mike King, Sandy Boville, Chris McKeever, Tobias Sedlacek, Erik Pousette, Sakarias Majander, Leo Bjorklund, Douglas Kallsbo, Ian Hamilton, Danny Arnold, Sam Zahner, Jake Fagrelius, and Tanner Berg. We hope you enjoy watching ‘Advance’ as much as we did filming it.

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!
