Inside Stoke the Fire: British Columbia

What happens behind the scenes when some of the hardest charging backcountry riders get together on an insanely deep couple of days sled skiing in BC before bumping up to Mica Heli for some bluebird runs in the alpine? Turns out it can be a serious challenge for filmers out there capturing the action. Ian Mcintosh, Christina Lustenberger, Dane Tudor, Sammy C, and Nick Mcnutt definitely make it look easy on camera, but long days in some of the deepest snow they’ve seen isn’t just all blissful powder skiing. There’s a whole lot of work that goes on to make those few minutes of stoke come to life on screen. Thanks to our producers and filmers in the field and our friends at The North Face, Atomic, Volkl and Scott for making dreams come true in the wild woods of the Canadian backcountry!

It takes a good angle to have a perfect shot. Love your work!

VIDEO: Mason Ho Shares His Worst Wipeouts of the Year

Carnage...sometimes you just can't look away. That's definitely the case here with Mason Ho's worst wipeouts of the last few years. Collected from all over the world, some of these are really bad. Surprisingly, the worst ones aren't even related to riding massive walls of water. Sometimes the smaller barrels can bite too, especially if there's a razor-sharp reef below.
