This Ladies Only Ski Edit Will Have You Itching for the BC Backcountry

Each year, the World Ski and Snowboard Festival up in Whistler, British Columbia, is a proving ground for some of the most original ski filmmakers across the globe. For the "Intersection" film contest, the organizers of WSSF decide to make things a bit more interesting for entrants by strapping them with a unique set of criteria for submissions: All entrants into the Intersection contest have a week to put together a 5-7 minute video edit, filmed entirely within 100 kilometers of Whistler.

The videos submissions are meant to act as a love letter for the area, and the winner of this year's People's Choice award at Intersection comes from the rowdy women's snow crew The Cariboo Blondes for their highly entertaining edit "Blonde Highlights."

The edit is a perfect way to kickstart your week, particularly if you're a big fan of Method Man soundtracks and women slaying huge BC lines.

We'll start with a quick refresh on skiing etiquette: Downhill skiers have the right of way. 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. Of course, the conditions required for such an adventure are about as rare as finding first tracks down Cody Peak these days, but skiers Rob Aseltine, Willie Nelson, and Dan Rihm made it happen during a recent storm cycle.
