I first met Dave years ago working in a restaurant together in Whistler. You could tell right away he wasn’t cut out for the service industry, I mean he could do the job but he just wasn’t into it. After about a month of working there he just didn’t show up one day. Of course working in a mountain town your mind starts to think the worst but it turns out Dave just packed up his truck and sled and headed north with a crew because he heard the snow was good. I think he has been chasing the snow ever since then and hasn’t looked back. He just dropped his last edit of his web series Short Stories, and it is filled with some great riding.
Mellow Drop For Dave Short In The Whistler Backcountry
I have been shooting with Joel Loverin more and more over the last few seasons. He prefers to ride more and talk less and you can usually find him in the backcountry with his crew bagging big lines even if the cameras are not rolling. He just dropped a little edit of some of his footage from last season that back up my claims. It is refreshing to work with a rider who would rather ride then build a huge cheese wedge these days, i’ll be interested to see the footage he comes up with this year.
Today on Light of Day we have someone that needs no introduction in the snowboard world as David is widely known as one of the best in the biz. A few years back the Yes team pioneered a new zone in the Whistler Backcountry while filming for their team project. Let me tell you that breaking into a new zone in the backcountry is no easy task and these guys went to great lengths to make this spot happen. I spent a few days back there with them and got my ass kicked by the terrain and my snowmobile and was so happy to see the truck at the end of the day. But great times were had by all, and it is always great to see a new spot in the beautiful mountains we are surrounded by here in B.C.
