VIDEO: BD athlete Drew Stoecklein roadtrips to Canada in search of snow
BD athlete Drew Stoecklein decide to stop waiting for the snow to fall and jumped in his truck. Destination? North to Canada (hey, they don’t call it The Great White North for nothing). Here’s the report and excellent video he put together from his snow-hunting mission.
During the first week of 2012, I had the opportunity to travel to Nelson, British Columbia to shoot a feature article for Swedish magazine, Aka Skidor. Without a flake of snow in sight I packed my bags and headed to the Great White North to meet up with photographer Garret Grove, editor Tobias Liljeroth, and athlete Chris Rubens. After pounding the pavement for 14 hours I arrived in Nelson. For the next 5 days I experienced the incredible terrain at White Water Resort along with some great snow conditions. White Water has a great, small-resort feeling that’s combined with an endless amount of backcountry adventures. After a week of shredding I was bummed to leave, and I can’t wait for the next chance to come back to White Water and ski again.
