These salty old early season dogs have done it again! Regular bigliners Rance Tuff and Dustin Clark rallied with their buddy Joey into the high country off an undisclosed mountain pass (cough) and found themselves some pow turns.

The Sherpas themselves are carved from the dramatic peaks of the Rocky Mountains, so it's no surprise that this project looks to be absolutely dripping with beauty and soul. They connected with a few of the area's new up-and-comers as well as well as revisiting some of the old haunts with Chris Rubens and Eric Hjorleifson, guys who grew up in the shadows of such incredible mountains.

I don't want to alarm anyone, but WINTER HAS ALREADY BEGUN for a couple of intrepid Albertan souls. The duo, comprised of Dustin Clark and Rance Tuff, reportedly "left the city at 5:30(pm), skinned for 45 minutes, shredded pow, and skied to the road."
