Oakley and TGR Wrap Things up in Northern BC
We just wrapped up an epic trip to Last Frontier Heliskiing in northern British Columbia. The Oakley/TGR team mission was incredible. I think the final thoughts on the trip were, “Wow. There is a lot of terrain here and it is insane. We need to get back ASAP.”
We saw endless amounts of mountains and lines that will take years of work to shred. The province of British Columbia in general is big and raw. Flying home on a sunny day is jaw dropping. I sat next to Dana Flahr on the plane and he grabbed my digital camera countless times to shoot different lines. It seemed like we were on a location scout. Kye and Seth were on the other side of the plane. Seth was showing Kye lines he had ripped in Bella Coola while discovering new ones they wanted to go and bag.
The mountains are an amazing place. They teach us so much about life and its possibilities. To watch Tanner, Seth, Dana, and Kye session together is unreal. I only hope our cameras can touch, if only for a brief moment, the magnitude of what these guys do.
Look for all the Oakley team footage in the upcoming Teton Gravity Research film set to release this fall.
Huge thanks to the whole crew at Last Frontier Heliskiing; Angelica, Geoff, Michael Brackenhoffer, Mike Watling, George, Jean Yves, and all the staff at BELL 2 LODGE who quickly became our long lost friends from the North Country. We miss you all and can’t wait to come back.
