Fourcast 2 Trailer.
I realize this is the Ski/Snowboard forum, but there are quite a few of us that use snowmobiles for backcountry access. I bought my first snowmobile 4 years ago for ski access and along the way discovered that a face shot is a face shot regardless of how you attained it. (Likewise with airtime) This is a movie shot almost entirely in the Whistler Backcountry by former Snowboard cinematographer Jorli Ricker of Highmark Films. Most snowmobile movies are poorly shot and edited, thus making them hard to watch or stay entertained. Jorli is a superb cinematographer, and we spent a lot of long days in the backcountry to get the early morning and late evening light. I'm beyond stoked to have been a part of this project.
Just thought I'd share with you guys, a lot of these riders ski and snowboard as well. Most of this terrain also gets skied or appears in MSP/TGR movies, there is no place on earth I'd rather live than here in Whistler and this winter was absolutely absurd with how much snow we got. Just a different way to look at the mountains and all the different ways you can travel in them. This movie includes powder riding, some hillclimbing, tree riding, jumping and hucking, quite a broad scope of different styles of riding.
Hope you enjoy! It'll be available for purchase or download on itunes August 15th.

^^No doubt. Most don't realize how hard it is to ride like that!

Looks like something fun to watch! Cool lines.
I do have to say the first 24 seconds was probably the funniest thing I have watched in 2012 thus far.

You ask any adrenaline junkie to talk about the sport they're most passionate about it's always going to sound a little cheesey. I can ramble on for hours about the places we get to that is hundreds of km's back on glaciers and ice-caps that you can most definitely bet rarely see any human traffic. I saw some of the most stunning sunsets of my life this winter on remote mountain peaks hundreds of km's from civilization. I'm not a religious person at all, but I found it to be a spiritual moment for sure.
As for the pain comment, haha. We all took a bit of a beating. I forgot to put my mouthguard in only once, and look what happened haha.

I see my snowmobile as a freedom tool that takes me some of the most stunning, isolated places in a matter of hours where the mountain becomes my playground and the options are virtually unlimited. There is just so much terrain to explore in BC it is ridiculous, would take 10 lifetimes to more to fully explore every range, zone and area.
