This movie is about the Mountains, and the nature. It gives you the feeling of what it's actually like to be there, high in the mountains, camping, climbing, feeling the cold. Traveling on foot throughout a variety of different mountain ranges, many days and nights (and months) are spent out in the wild. This film cuts no corners to bring you the most authentic mountain experience possible.
As Isaac has climbed the ladder to the top of the world tour podium he needed a ski that could keep up and allow him to bring a freestyle approach to big mountain competition. Here, Isaac explains that process and how his signature ski came to be.
The guy's energy was infectious. His 1986 Dodge Camper Van* was the ultimate ski bum home and we piled in on the way back to the bus after skiing Beartooth Basin. He mentioned being on a fast - water only - and I think he said he was on day eight. It seemed possible. He possessed super human strength and abilities, he had laser vision and fired up everyone skiing the headwall that day. He operated on a high frequency: this was a skier in the purest form - focused on the skiing at hand, stoked to meet everyone who shared his passion, and raising the stoke of everyone he met.
My knowledge about terrain choices was slowly coming into focus. But, I started to recognize other gaps in my knowledge. Even though I wore a beacon every day I wasn’t very proficient at using it. I understood what made a good start zone for an avalanche, but not why some days or times of day that avalanche would be more likely to occur. The terrain in the Tetons was inspiring and this was another moment where I realized I had to continue my avalanche education to keep skiing the things I wanted to ski.
