Dude, that was AWESOME! Watched all 16 min and wasn't bored. Couple questions:
1) What outfit in Haines?
2) What helmet cam?
3) What editing software?
Well done my friend!

Looks like an awesome trip! Good stuff!
If I had any comments on the edit it would be as follows.
-I would suggest using less transitional effects. A lot of them didn't make much sense.
-As you can see, imovie does a horrible job of slowing down footage. Some of those that were slowed down were really stuttering but that could be due to crappy youtube compression as well.
-Not sure what type of color correction imovie has built in but it could use a bit. Trying to match the white of the snow from clip to clip would make it look a lot better. It's super easy to do with a 3 way color corrector and it would take all of 15 minutes to do the whole video. But again, I'm not sure what comes in imovie.
All in all, solid video and I enjoyed the whole thing. I normally say less is more but with such banger footage I didn't get bored!

That was SWEET!!! Those guys do partake in the art of the huck.
Haines is definitely the powder playground!! And has amazing terrain that you DON'T need a heli to encounter, takes more work, is all....just like Valdez.
Truth be told, even though Haines is almost 2 and a half times the driving distance from Anchorage as Valdez (750 miles vs. 300 miles), and the US Border and Canadian border personnel have become total dicks, I'd rather go to Haines, as I simply like the mountains better and the town isn't an oil town. I get bad vibes in the town of valdez because of all the oilies...nothing but great vibes in Haines.
That was one NICE huck at 02:36...and a cush LZ.
