    It is by far the least fun part of this project. The difference between Dav's project and mine first and foremost is "Red Bull" at the front. Throw that name in front of an Forest Service officer and they'll immediately knee jerk to denying you any sort of permission. But for me, I've tried to put out that this is a personal project, all the footage is owned by me and distributed on personal channels, it is no different than any other person putting GoPro footage up on their own YouTube channel...which doesn't need permits. Where it gets sticky is the sponsor logos upfront. But my argument for that is they're funding me being able to do this and are not selling anything directly from the films, they're just supporting me personally. I mean, if I was a rich kid with a trust fund, I wouldn't need their support and the episodes would be exactly the same. It's just I'm not a rich kid so I need support financially to do this. So yeah, that's where I've been able to get permission from the National Parks...but man, it's still a giant pain in the ass. If I somehow get busted for something out of my control, I may need to rally the troops, get some petitions signed and some statements though, could help. Fingers crossed!

    I'm only signing a petition if it mandates it is for an attempted first descent on ski blades.

    Damn, maybe it's a good thing you skied Joffre this year. Twisting couloir is gone. I'm sure Pemby locals will start posting pics of a massive landslide shortly...

    That landslide IS massive based on the photo Cody just posted on FB. Crazy. It looks like the mountain is steaming on one of the photos, like the dust still settling. The debris flow looks other worldly. Devastation.

    That isn't the Combatant couloir. The image you posted is the right arrow, the Combatant couloir is the left arrow, which is out of sight in those photos. Makes a pretty big difference as Combatant does not have the glacial features that the other couloir does

    Massive landslide discussion > film permitting nuances, but I thought Dav and team shot a bunch of skiing w/out a permit. Then months later they tried to secure a permit retroactively to use that footage in his commerical film. Could be the permitting folks just wanted nothing to do with a ďRed BullĒ film, but I think he would have been SOL either way after shooting so much w/out a permit.

    That landslide is quite an event. Shit is massive! Idk what the approach was like before but should be pretty straightforward now

    Here's a better shot of Joffre after and before. After shot from Jamie. Before shot I took around 2010

    Twisting Couloir gone. Looks like that whole block of choss fell off the NE face. On the bright side access improved!

    Went up the summer trail this afternoon to check it out. Once I got the drone up 1500í and saw this, I bailed and went out the long way. No need to go back down the drainage under that slurpee of death. Looks like Lee already posted my other pic Click image for larger version.

    Yeah, I was reading and looking over the 50 Classics book before I left and Google Earth too. Wasnít sure. Thought it may have been the bigger of the ones up there, looks like Combatant is 500m according to Google Earth. Did get a glance at it the following day from lower down the NW ridge. Hope someone is bagging that other one far right.
