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.

When big mountain skiers and snowboarders Jeremie Heitz, Nico Vuignier, Sam Anthamatten, Laurent DeMartin, Florian Bruchez, and Mathieu Schaer get together, you know it’s going to be wild. What we didn’t expect, however, was filmmaker and skier Nico Vuignier’s take on the matter. Imagine this: turn out all the lights, light up the sky with a huge fireball, and then shred hairy big mountain lines like there’s no tomorrow.

Slovakian World Cup skier Andreas Zampa took an unlikely route to the lead at Adelboden on Sunday.  Ignoring the conventional wisdom which dictates that staying upright on your skis is the best way to end a race, he took a fall right before the finish and slid over the line on his side.   Related: The Freeride World Tour Kicks Off in Hakuba This Week Despite crashing, he took the lead with that run, but did not manage to finish his second, unfortunately preventing him from reaping the
