A good crew consisting of Tom Runcie, Rob Dickinson, Sydney Dickinson, Ashley Bembenek, Mark Mikos, Matt Evans, Tara Tafi, and Will Dujardin went up to ski Purple Ridge on Saturday. A few laps here and there made for some awesome skiing. Let’s hope the snow holds up! Photos by Will Dujardin.
This is, in our opinion, the best segment in ski movies from this year. Callum Pettit, Kye Peterson, and JP Auclair go off. It features two out of four nominations (and the eventual winner) for Line of the Year. Enjoy.

It has a slow two minute intro consisting of footage from Valhalla’s forest segment, but then picks up with a TON of sick shots. Enjoy. Occasionally we find ourselves cut adrift from the normal and known. Drifting from one moment [...]
