Start Your Week With Some Deep Montanan Goodness

Unless you've been living under a rock, you're probably aware of the fact that Montana is having an absolutely all-time ski season. As the Great Falls Tribune reported last Thursday, the state's snowpack is currently above average in all five of Montana's river basins with 15 of the state's U.S. Department of Agriculture snowpack monitoring stations reporting all-time snowpack records.

And all that white stuff has meant a season for the ages for skiers and snowboarders in Montana, with plentiful backcountry pow turns to be had for anyone willing to make the trek out to Big Sky Country. Lucky for them, the newly formed Benshi Creative group doesn't need to travel too far to score the deep stuff: The company was formed by two students from Montana State University and is located in the heart of the Treasure State. Fittingly, their first edit, "Honey," is a beautiful ode to the heavenly ski season in the state.

So get your work week started with some deep Montana pow turns. They're scientifically proven to make the work week go by quicker.

This time, the guys try 21 different tricks on the same handrail. Oh, and did we mention theres no snow in sight, and the handrail leads straight into a river? Looks like a great way too cool off to us.

Ditched: Speedflyer and Skier Go Head to Head

We’ve all had the following conversation: “you’re still in bed dude? Come on—I’m outside waiting!” There’s always at least one friend who just can’t seem to get their act together when you’re trying to head up for the mountains. Skier Jake Hopfinger and speedflyer Hayes Majerus know this dynamic all too well, in fact, it’s so ingrained into their normal routine that it served as the basis for Benshi Creative’s latest short film, Ditched. Benshi Creative is a two-man team comprised of Cameron

Far Out Places: The Purcell Mountains and British Columbia

In Canada, pilgrimages to backcountry huts are a fairly common pastime during the wintertime. The idea is to use these little structures as a strategic basecamp for foot-powered missions and TGR is no stranger to the remarkable landscape of British Columbia. For this year’s Far Out segment in the Purcell Mountain range, which are home to both world-class heli-skiing and the resort Kicking Horse, we opted to do as the locals do with some Canadian-style hut accommodations. In classic TGR
