    Yes! I had that one too. Its probably better than Exile for pure quality of footage, but Exile was one of the first films I had and claimed a spot in my heart for nostalgia :D

    I personally prefer more backcountry freeriding films to a bunch of jumps and Damien Sanders boolsheet

    Here was another nostalgic oldschool film. We especially loved it because amazingly it has a chapter in it filmed at Powder King. That was amazing/weird because PK is a really obscure little place and Kelly was our god :D

    Everyone loved CK but a guy I'd see once and a while up at Seymour was JP Walker, loved how smooth that guy was. So funny to rewatch those old videos and remember how amazed I was at what they could do when you see how good the top guys are today.

    Anytime you're coming through BC send me a PM and let's get some runs in. If it's midweek i can probably hook you and your family up with keys to my place at Big White and you can get some riding in.

    bunch of guys from work had our annual 'ski day' where we all skip work and head up the mountain.

    Good time, but I only get up once or twice a year until the kids are a little older.
    Did manage to make a high-speed flying snow angel, though.

    Where are you located? Good mountain? It's almost 7 here and loft open at 845. It feels like Xmas morning.

    I'd say check here first.

    Inn at Big White | Big White Ski Resort

    Great location, outdoor pool and hot tub, little games room for kids, pub with good food, ski in/out...

    Once you know your dates let me know and we'll try to hit a few runs.
