Meet the Patrollers – a tale from the Fernie Ski Patrollers - Forest

Skiing, Canada

So often we see them off in the distance beyond the yellow caution rope. Sometimes we catch a glimpse as they whiz by with a sled in tow. Occasionally, we are lucky enough to share a chair lift with one as they head back up the mountain where we might have time enough to strike up a quick chat. The Ski Patrollers are the ones who make it possible for us to enjoy what we love to do. Day in and day out, they ensure the mountain is safe and use their expertise to minimize the surprises mother nature might ...

HH Ambassador JF Plouffe takes us through the conclusion of Expedition Mount Saugstad. Part 2 of 2 - The Way Up Day 4 Another push through the forest finally got us to the glacier. But it took us 2 hours for that 1km...Crazy west coast vegetation! The glacier was humongous, broken up by massive vertical cliffs creating 4 major walls. The crevasses were all exposed and bigger than any recorded photos taken from planes or helicopters. We navigated our way to the vertical parts where we ice climbed to set up anchors. The weather was not helping us. ...

Kaylin Richardson took a spare second between flights to update us on her whirlwind travel schedule on the road with the Warren Miller tour. After a crazy sell out on the opening night, she is off to various stops all over the US, check out which cities she'll be in and make sure to head out to 'No Turning Back': It is crazy how time flies. In many ways it seems the two weeks I spent filming with Warren Miller in Lofoten, Norway last March was yesterday. Exhausted, inspired, and in awe of what I had just experienced, when we ...

Professional mountain guides and Helly Hansen ambassadors Tino Villanueva and Alan Rousseau are headed back to Nepal and the Rolwaling Valley, check out what the guys have planned along with some Odin collection product testing: A little over three years ago, and half way through a twelve pack; we first started talking about exploratory missions into the Himalaya seeking first ascents. Our first attempt to launch a trip was thwarted by simply starting the planning too late in Summer 2011. However, this initial research provided one zone, and one peak in particular that sparked our interest. The area was the ...
