Matt Wainhouse is a high calibre boardist from the PNW. He runs with a crew of like-minded individuals and they've all got a knack for documenting one another's exploits, even if it's only on the fly with their iphones. This is Matt's submission to The Snowboard NW Film Fest and it gives an amazing sense of what it would be like to roll around Stevens Pass and the rest of...

"Midway through a dry season, with scraggly trees, icy slopes, and hardly any base, Mount Baker suddenly finds itself consumed by the chaos of the year' biggest storm-- unleashing several feet of snow every night for ten straight days. Plows work around the clock to keep order, but still the ditches fill with battered cars fallen victim to the heavy drifts.

The bike I’m riding is sliding sideways on an ice-glazed road in backwoods Washington. I get a glimpse of Mount Rainier in the distance but it looks impossibly far away, especially after I hit the asphalt and get pinned under my ride. This is no isolated incident…moments earlier, my buddy just “Brian Boitano’ed” his bike into a 345 degree spin across the ice before putting it down in the ditch....

"You ever wish you didn't have to wait for anyone when shredding pow, well welcome to Mt. Baker. The land of getting some while needing no friends from 9 AM to 10 AM the golden hour of shred. In 1 hour at Mt. Baker on an average day you can rally 6 lines and produce a Go Pro edit that will take a whole year to get anywhere else. Just ask the entire snowboard industry they do it every winter.

Hellbent on backcountry skiing, brothers Mike & Andy Traslin have been earning their turns every month of the year for the last 95 months in a row. They're not alone, especially in the Pacific Northwest where a string of glaciated volcanoes make it pretty reasonable to score turns any time of the year. Sometimes it pours rain, sometimes it's so damn hot you're regretting not being at the...

"With over 10 feet of snow in 10 days, conditions were ripe to do some helicopter avalanche control work above the backside of Stevens Pass on February 26, 2014. Here's a behind the scenes look at the avy control process and stunning video of a massive slide in all its terrible glory." Narration: Chris Brixey, Stevens Pass Pro Patrol, Music: "Wolf in Sheep's Skin" by Ghost Power. (From Stevens...

Look at this Beast! She's beautiful from a distance, but it's hard not to think about what it would be like to be caught in the belly of a monster like this. This is a great shot though, filmed from the perfect vantage point. And the people around Stevens Pass will be stoked that they have some new gladed terrain once things settle out.

Our time in the mountains affects us all in incredible ways and this movie takes the time to reflect on what it all means, man. Enjoy...

This one's from the PNW's Rene Crenshaw. Doesn't look as light and fluffy as the ones from The Purcells, but it still looks pretty damn good....

Very few people get to hop on a heli once a year in Haines Alaska and ride the worlds most magical mountains. You either have to be extremely dedicated, rich or one of the best snow sliders in the world. Blair Habenicht is not rich. Blair's antics emulate his belated cousin, Northwest shred legend Scott Stamnes. Live life to the fullest, enjoy everyday, every minute, every second. When it's good...

Even if you just watch the first five minutes, take a second to hear what Craig Kelly had to say about the way he lived his life. Today's the ten year anniversary of him passing away in an avalanche just outside of Revelstoke. Another one gone too soon, The King of Style's impact on snowboarding will be felt forever.

This Kid and his his crew are taking a freestyle background and leeting it loose on the sick terrain that Stevens Pass has to offer. I had a chance to shred with Matt in Whistler at the beginning of this season and I know he was especially devastated by the tragic avalanche that happened down in Stevens Pass. So this is Matty and his crew moving forward and doing what they love in honour of...

Here's a unique little short movie by Sam Giffen that documents the love story between his brother Zach Giffen and Molly Walker. This short film was a finalist at the Banff Festival of Mountain Films in 2011. It's 13 minutes long and an interesting watch.

Black Diamond athlete Zack Giffin is always prowling around the Pacific Northwest backcountry for prime lines, and the adventure featured in this video and report is absolutely prime. Big, steep, committing and sweet—this epic line on Mount Shuksan was for sure one of the highlights of Zack’s spring ski season.
