Andy Jacobsen Segment From ‘The Pact’
The Powderwhore movies you watch and enjoy happen because we live in an amazing location and we have skilled and driven friends to ski with. There isn’t anybody we know who we feel more comfortable skiing and filming with than Andy Jacobsen. He is one of the original PW members that got this project running through hard work and safely pushing the limits.
The standard “I’m gazing at a huge mountain face” face.

There seems to be a bit of a gap with most folks I know. There are those that can let the badger out of the cage and throw down with mad skillz. And there are those that are snow savvy and know when to say when, but swiggle their way around. Nobody i know better combines the intelligence and athleticism required to choose, access, evaluate and manage the big ski lines. I think his consistently solid video performances over the past 4 years are the proof. Here is a mini ‘teaser’ from AJ’s segment in this years flick.
