The Garrett Russell Experience, Episode I

Who is Garrett Russell is not as accurate or thought provoking a question as what is Garrett Russell? Garrett "G-Funk" Russell is an artist, an impressionist, a warrior poet in the narrative of skiing. Within that storyline he stands out as its most captivating character and most inspired creative director. He is both the ink on the page and the writer. He accentuates his passage through the lines with fresh, inventive technique and style. Each turn and diverse movement is filled with his life’s experience.

His memoirs are written on the faces of the Andes, the Sierras, the San Juans, through countless pillows of white. The epitaphs for his memories are inscribed in the smoky trundles of snow that ribbon off his shoulders as he cuts and smears. The moment is king and Garrett combines his inner vision with the contours of reality. He accentuates this blend through integrated creative impulse within every movement, carving contrast in the conventional without alienating his audience. His skiing is relatable and tangible. It is art at its highest form, with the deepest meaning, and the utmost accessibility. GFunk is a DIY Picasso. His composition is within the audience’s grasp, explicating the elements of the human experience through inspired movement and inspiring methodology. In Bro-ese it is described as “steeze,” in laymen’s terms, “style.” But honestly, it is best described as The Garrett Russell Experience. As Garrett says, "How the body moves in time and motion is art. I like to use skis as a motion of art."

Another Time, Another Place will follow G-Funk in 4 different episodes through the red granite spires and windblown faces of the Argentine Andes to the old growth mystical forests of Japan and into the heart of the American canvas. We are invited in for an investigation of creativity, illumination of spirit, and discovery of true artistic expression. Come for the skiing, stay for the experience.

Ski mountaineering isn’t all just fun and games, even when you’re pro skier Cody Townsend. For the latest installment of his ongoing project Townsend teamed up with Pemberton local Chris Rubens to conquer one of the headier lines in the book – Mt. Currie. After scoping the line for several days, realizing their initial intended route up was far too dangerous due to overhanging cornices up high, they changed plans and forged a new and much harder route up the peak.
