Freeride Chronicles: Heli Skiing Monashee

Posted By: The Ski Channel on December 8, 2014 4:10 pm

The first episode of season two of the Freeride Chronicles reunites a team of former US Freestyle Ski Teamers deep in the Mountains of British Columbia for a 10 day road trip excursion. The 25 year hiatus doesn’t seem to effect skiers Kris Feddersen, Lynne Weiland, Trace Worthington, John Witt, Tommy Frey, Desiree Leipham and Devin Dufenhorst, as they charge harder than ever through some of BC’s finest powder.

The gang kicks off the reunion with three days at Monashee Powder Snowcats where the conditions are bottomless. The three days are spent ripping up the backcountry and throwing down old school spread eagles and splitsters. A special appearance from Dave Treadway caps off an amazing three days.

For the second leg, the Freeride Chronicles crew heads down the infamous Powder Highway for Heli-skiing at RK Heli Ski in Panorama, BC. The dry snow, high altitude, and sunny conditions allowed the team to ski the mountains huge glacier and ride gnarly alpine bowls.

The episode concludes with the crew meeting up with local Big Mountain Skier Izzy Lynch at Selkirk Tangiers in Revelstoke. More than two feet of fresh powder greet the skiers as they float on surreal pillow like snow all day long.

Stay tuned for Episode 2 of the Freeride Chronicles on The Ski Channel featuring trips to Whitefish Mountain Resort and Great Northern Powder Guides.
