Sammy Carlson Narrowly Misses Avalanche, Jumps Into Trees Instead–Wild Child Episode #1

In the first of three episodes going behind the scenes of the making of The Sammy C Project, Sammy Carlson heads to Revelstoke, British Columbia to find powdery pillow lines with Ben Moxham, John Spriggs, and Tim Humphreys. The crew quickly finds rotten avalanche conditions, and Sammy narrowly escapes an avalanche while building a backcountry jump.

Deciding to play it safe, the crew makes the call to leave the open backcountry and build some wild jibs in the trees low down. "You gotta make sure that if you're not feeling it, you just walk away."

Check out the teaser for The Sammy C Project presented by Sony Action Cam, which drops November 20.

Yes, it's super annoying when you're arcing some turns down a groomer and all of a sudden rental-boots-over-jeans-guy makes an erratic 90+ degree swerve into your fall line. However, it's still your responsibility to avoid crashing into him. Related: Man Survives for Weeks on Saltine Sandwiches Why didn't the cameraman spot his buddy's landing?

Skiing the Utah Desert Is a One-of-a-Kind Experience

Ever since Ian and Neil Provo showed off their backyard in their iconic short film , the prospect of skiing and snowboarding among the red dirt of southern Utah has been high on the list.
