Yesterday King 5 New Day NW had Ingrid Backstrom and I onto the show to talk about the new Warren Miller film “No Turning Back” It was really fun to hang see Ingrid again and be able to talk about our segments. You can watch our entire interview by following the link below.
Next stop is Wisconsin for the film.
Well, Its that time of the year again. When the trees start turning colors and everyone who loves skiing get that little itch for winter again. Another thing is ski movie trailers start to be released. Warren Miller Ent. just released their trailer for the new film “No Turning Back” That features the trip Josh Bibby I went on in Greece. Check it out below and go and see the film when it comes out.
Just found out Ian Coble and I got the cover of the new Ski Presse mag. Not only did we get the cover but they did a full write up on Ian and gave him gallery. I made the cut in the gallery along with other athletes.

So all and all came away with some sick shots in the mags. Now its off to SIA for a couple days, but just my luck the minute I booked my ticket it starts snowing here in WA. O well will get back after it shooting when I get home.
Finally had some down time to edit all my GoPro footage from my trip to CMH. Wish I would of busted out the camera more and shoot some more footage, but at least this gives you a little taste of what it was like up there. Thanks again to everyone at CMH and K2 for having such a sick lodge and operation. really hope to get back up there and do some real filming in the future. The place has some amazing terrain!
This past week I was invited to head up to the CMH K2 Rotor Lodge. K2 and CMH have done something really special, in where they have turned their entire lodge into a K2 museum. The whole place is done the K2 way, from the bar to the rooms. One of the special things about the lodge is that the guests get to ski any new k2 skis they want, with them getting a free pair of any K2 skis the following year! The Reason I was sent up to the lodge last week was to hang with a Steep Deeps and Pillow Drops group. This group is different from most heli groups, in they are out looking for pillows and cliffs to hit. It was fun to ski with a group of guys out looking for the same thing I would be looking for on a daily basis. I also was able to get out and take some runs with some regular groups that come to the lodge. One thing I did get to witness that was cool, was one guest reach 8 MILLION! vert skied at CMH in his life time. Along with another hitting 1 MILLION! Thats insane and a lot of heli skiing. All and all it was a great trip and I was really excited to get up to CMH and ski a lot of pow. here are some photos and I am working on a small edit.

SUPER excited! I just got word that I will be heading back to CMH Heli skiing Jan 2-6 to coach the Steep Shots and Pillow Drops camp at the K2 Rotor lodge. Had an amazing time last trip up to CMH, so really looking forward to getting back up and teaching everyone how to send it! Will be updating the blog as more travels come about. Happy holidays everyone and pray for snow!
