    Great episode. I really liked the music throughout. Cool line. Cool footage. This episode had a very cool, chill ambiance which I enjoyed very much.

    Episode was fantastic overall but as soon as I saw buddy drop the knee and heard other buddy vapidly philosophizing about the euphoria of it all, I must admit I cringed.

    Ah, come on. It's like that Jennifer Aniston romcom none of us would admit to.
    We all have a small part in us that would love to run with the wabbits and drop that knee chasing the double rainbow. You have to let your inner hippie out!

    Episode was awesome! What I find fascinating in the US is the bushwhacking, the scale of everything is so much larger.

    I disagree. Watched this with my wife last night and she was giving me shit the entire time about risking my life out there and buddy summed it up perfectly for me at the end. Feel the exact same way when I get back to the truck/sled/cabin after a massive day ticking off new lines and zones.

    +1 on this. He did as good a job putting it into words as most of us could. It's not an easy feeling to describe, I tend to be quiet about it and walk around with a beer and a giant grin but I don't have someone sticking a camera in my face expecting me to have something to say...

    Also, Nick Russell is a mountain hippy who rarely wears less than two hats at once... He's gonna shred lines, bring posi vibes and say funky shit. I'm sure Cody was aware of that when he signed him up.

    This was a cool adventure to watch him get weird on:

    Man, that seemed like genuine stoke to me. Not any of that ig manufactured look at me bullshit and after watching "the last hill" it seems Nick Russell is just genuinely stoked on life. I fucking love that shit!

    Thanks for sharing that vid danmelon! that was rad!

    Agreed if I didn't feel that way after a long day in the mountains I'm sure I'd rethink why I spend my days daydreaming about the next opportunity to get out there.

    Exactly. That's exactly who Nick is and is exactly why so many of us going into the mountains with him. He brings so much positivity, stoke and happiness its hard for it not to positively affect your own day. Oh and plus he's strong as hell on the up, rips on the way down and has keen mountain skills. One of my favorites to be in the mountains with.

    Besides the inspiring emotive stoke that goes beyond the effable...Nick...droppin' the knee for uber vert @ >=45ish degrees in what appeared to be less than perfect groomed corduroy? There are levels to this game. Respect.

    Another excellent episode. My main reaction was, "I want to ski with that Nick dude."
