Boarder Patrol for Snowboard Canada Magazine


One of the things I like about working with the crew at Snowboard Canada is they are always up to let you try something different. So when I approached them about trying to snowmobile across the border between Canada and the USA they jumped at the idea. Almost everyone else I talked to about it thought it was a bad idea, but you know what they say bad ideas make for great stories. Unfortunately we did not accomplish our mission, but we did explore some new terrain,had some laughs and saw some creepy stuff along a small stretch of the worlds longest undefended border.

Backcountry Bombin’ with Joel Loverin

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.


Recent Tear Sheets from Mark Gribbon Photography


Well now that the holiday’s are over and I have come out of my Turkey/Crown Royal stuppor you will start to see a little more action around the blog. The newest Snowboard Canada just dropped with a feature I put together last spring. We spent a couple nights camping up on the Pemberton Ice Cap with a great crew consisting of Shin Campos, Martin Gallant, Joel Loverin, Tyler Chorlton and Kareem El Rafie.The snow conditions were less then ideal but we managed to put together a couple shots for the story. I think everyone had to buy new skis after this trip as we hit a few km’s of dirt on the access road but it was all worth it in the end. So if you haven’t picked up a copy yet make sure you do but for now you can check out the recent tear sheets from Mark Gribbon Photography below.

Over the last week I competed in the Deep Winter Photo Challenge . The conditions could have been better, the light was amazing but the lack of fresh snow was the challenge to overcome this year. Everyone had a great show I thought, although the judges were not feeling my submission I am still very proud of what we accomplished in such a short time. My team consisted of Trevan Salmon, Wiley Tesso and Joel Loverin. Whistler Blackcomb is running a peoples choice award with online voting right now, stop by and check out everyone’s work and pick your favorite, the prize pack makes it worth your time. I had some great help this year Ross Tripp volunteered to be my assistant and did an amazing job, he caught some great behind the scenes shots on his instagram make sure you click through and check them out. As well Chili Thom proved once again that he is the ultimate jack of all trades by putting my show together in record time.
