This is the first time we have come to Ripley Creek, based out of Stewart, BC Canada. Over the years I have flown over this area on the spring pilgrimage to Alaska. On those flights from Seattle to AK all you see is snow covered peaks the whole way. Stewart is a quiet mining town that is situated near the end of the most southern tip of the Alaskan pan handle. We are here filming with Teton Gravity Research, flying with Last Frontier Heli. Our ski crew consists of Kye Petersen, Sammy Carlson, and Callum Pettit. It’s refreshing to be here, new terrain to play in, another part of the Coast Mountains.
Oakley’s Sammy Carlson placed in slopestyle at the third and final stop of the Winter Dew Tour, at Mount Snow, Vermont. With a field of twelve in the best of two-run format, running order was dependent upon previous stop placement, and the event started strong.
