Pow Pow

Davie Whyte Edit from Anthony Bonello on Vimeo.

 

This year I'm getting a late start to my ski season.  I've had a few days out, face shots, white room and all but I can't consider my season officially started until I get a heavy dose of alpine.  After spending so much time in the Himalaya over the past 5 years, even the Rockies seem flat.  In early Feb I'll be going back to the Pir Panjal mountains of Kashmir.  This is the land of 6$ gondi rides for 4,600 vertical of untracked.  The vertical my not be huge comparatively but it is nearly all above treeline.  And the touring puts you straight into a Himalayan wilderness survival situation.  A buddy Anthony Bonello is over there now making a film.  He shot this footie earlier in the season.  Although it isn't in the Himalaya (it's BC), the terrain looks amazingly similar to the forests of fir trees common in Kashmir.  During the storm cycles it is just too dangerous to ski in the alpine zone so we ski in the forest.  Though this is not true big mountain skiing, it is the next best thing, Pow Pow.
