Paul MacDougall, Josh Lyons and myself spent 10 days down in Rio Nexpa, Mexico at the start of November. Amazing small zone, with a great left point break and epic views.
Now back in Whistler, where todays temperature was -17 Celcius........

Got the call from Jeff Thomas with PBP to shoot a huge jump on Blackcomb mountain the last couple of nights. Multiple athletes for both nights ( TJ Schiller, Ian Cosco, Simon Dumont, Jossi Wells, Alexis Godbout, Matt Walker for the first night). Matt Margetts, Charlie Ager, Mike Hentiuk, Josh Stack and Alexis Godbout all came out for the second night shoot.
Myself, Dan Carr, Paul Morrison were all shooting stills, with enough angles to all get something different and equally as epic. Jeff Thomas, Steve Horton, Dave Mossop all shooting film and video for PBP and Salomon Freeski TV.
First night we had an all time sunset, with Mossop and his heli buzzing our heads as the sun went down. Great times, with a couple minor injuries, but high fives were flying as the sun dropped behind the peaks and another epic Poor Boyz shoot went down.

Valdez is hungover today after the heavy drinking session following the King of the Hill awards ceremony, with Travis Rice and Vera Janssen taking the home the massive swords as King and Queen of the Hill. This is all part of the two week Tailgate Alaska event.
We have been having an amazing time with 6 sunny days of the last 8, with another high pressure coming in tomorrow night. We will spend a couple of more days hitting lines we have picked out with sleds, then fly with ABA ( http://www.alaskabackcountry.com/) on Wednesday to hit a couple of classic AK lines.
This trip is a must for any skier or snowboarder with any budget. Cheap heli bumps, sled shuttles, unbelievable terrain, great like minded people all enjoy Thompson Pass and everything Valdez has to offer. Huge props to Mark Sullivan and the Tailgate Alaska crew. Big thanks to Jeremy at Mountain Sky hotel for sorting out great accomodation. www.mountainskyhotel.com
