Tobin Seagel skiing under the Aurora Borealis, Yukon Tombstone Territorial Park.
This single image was the inspiration for our entire trip for SBC Skier Magazine
To one’s eye it burns above, but from no fuel
It dances without rhythm, ebbs and flows upon it’s own accord
To one’s skin it offers no warmth
Without warning, it doubles back and surges forward
To one’s year, curtains waving in the wind, a trick of the mind
Wind nor gale can blow the magical flames
To one’s nose and mouth, it pays no notice
Fire of the sky
Thanks to everyone who made this happen. It took a village. Tobin Seagel, Dave Gheriani, Joel Jacques, Tyson Bourgard, Isabel Lindeman, John Irvine, Jason Mousseau, Les Anthony, Jeff Schmuck, and many more.
Kenny Smith, riding on Whistler’s peak. This image is from 2012 Deep summer, Kenny found and built an insanely consequential chute on Whistler Peak. Half way down the chute a small chicane corner was the only thing to stop him from tomahawking down 100 meters of chunder the size of microwaves and refrigerators. I opted to wear a helmet while walking around and scoping a shot for the line. We nailed the shot first try, it’s not really the kind of thing you want to ride more than once.
Freehub is a PNW mountain bike magazine, the issue features a story on our team’s slideshow, and my photographic career. The piece was written by my great friend and talented writer Mike Berard. And, a feature on trail builder Paddy Kaye.
Stephen Matthews, Whistler Bike Park. This image is also from Deep Summer, a small piece of trail left over after Upper Whistler Downhill was re-routed. The now overgrown trail his hidden by deep grass, and has no entrance. Providing a sneaky place to create an image in the park, that looks very unlike the park.
MTB-Pro is a spanish online mountain bike magazine. They also features images from our team’s Deep Summer show.
Tobin Seagel, Tombstone Range, Yukon Territory
In the background of this cover image is Mount Tombstone. A morbidly named mountain that is namesake for the Tombstone Territorial Park. The strangest and most beautiful place I’ve ever gone skiing. Inside this issue is the story of our trip to ski in the Yukon against a multitude of factors trying to prevent our best efforts.
Skier is a great Canadian publication, the first ski magazine I ever bought growing up.
During early April this year, Bike mag tore me away from the amazing alpine skiing conditions in BC, to swelter in the American South. The story is on newsstands this month, and is written by Kristin Butcher. Her regular column, Butcher Paper, is always a favorite read, and our words and photos had previously been paired on the pages of Bike.
