The First Run of the Season

Hey there, heres a video to go along with my last blog post.

As you see, there is a ton of snow up at whitewater! Since it was the first run of the season, taking it easy on Bonanza was the logical choice.

I’ll have to remember to avoid it during the season, it’s not steep enough! I’m really looking forward to the season at whitewater. The terrain looks awesome, and the snow quality is equally awesome. Can’t wait to shred the gnar this year and progress my skiing!

Preseason shredding at Whitewater

On Saturday November 22, I took my first turns of the season. A group of five of us decided that the class room was enough, and it was time to ski. We had to have a solid crew, a crew for the ages. We had David, the old man, Camille the crazy french lady and Daniel the Ontario park rat. Sami was also a part of this crew, but hiked up much faster like the mountain goat he is.

After roughly an hour and a half hike, we reached the summit of Whitewater. It was a picturesque scene, with blue skies and the sun just behind Ymir.

The first run was bonanza, on skiers right of the chair. There was knee deep powder, and it was super light. The dayswas enjoyed, and smiles along with cheers were shared.

It was the perfect start of the season, and hopefully more days like it to come.Image

Why All I Can is the Best Ski Movie to Date

The best way I could describe skiing to a person in one word, is passion.

The reason why All I Can is so great, is that it really captures the passion that so many people feel about skiing. Ranging from community to realization, the change in skiing as well as the pure passion for the sport is always at the forefront of the movie.

I am privileged to say that I have devoted my life to skiing, and seeing a ski movie that I can actually relate too makes me connect to it at such a higher level than other movies that is just pure ski porn.

The skiing is on point, the lines are gnarly and the places they go to are interesting and captivating.

I raise a glass to Sherpas Cinema, for making the best ski movie to this date, and best of luck on future endeavours.

SUNNY

“Sunny, yesterday my life was filled with rain.”

Logan Imlach won superunknown a few years ago as the unlikely jib ninja from Alaska.

Logan isn’t your prototypical pro skier. He actually balances his skiing with a real job. He’s an engineer, and an awesome skier. Watch and enjoy.
