Choose Your Adventure Teaser- On A Boat

Share

It’s still a little early for movie trailers, but a short teaser from our Antarctica segment might cool things off a little.

Traveling to exotic locations to film skiing is a legalized form of gambling. Similar to hopping on the fun bus to Wendover and with roughly the same odds of coming home a “winner”. As production companies go, we are not high rollers. More like the old-timer: addicted to the flip of the next card and what fortune it could bring. We make a living putting in the long hours and wrestling good hands away from The House. However, last fall we saw an opportunity and decided to lay down a heavy bet. All in for Antarctica!  Ice Axe Expeditions gave us an incredibly discounted opportunity that we couldn’t pass up. Even still, we had never wagered this much on a single trip.

There are no guarantees, but we needed one anyway. The skiing could be horrible, weather could be worse and a whole slew of other elements could make the trip a bust for filming. We needed to stack the deck in our favor.

Inspiration hit like a Mutha F’ing iceberg in the night. ON A BOAT! (You’ll want to click on that link in case you’re not one of the 70 million viewers that have already seen it.)

That’s right, we were going to parody the parody! So, I packed up a captains hat, some tuxedo shirts and an inflatable dolphin and confidently flew to the end of the earth for a roll of the dice. In the end, we pulled the winning hand on an adventure like no other. Capturing enough great footage for a full segment and a short spoof. Enjoy the teaser for the Antarctica segment in our upcoming film Choose Your Adventure.

The lack of snow and accumulation of injuries last winter challenged us to get creative. And we honestly believe Choose Your Adventure is our most entertaining movie yet. We’ve got high adrenaline drops, deep face shots, characters in action, and exotic locations.  This years film is a stacked deck.

Check out the tour calendar and Pre-order the DVD and purchase PW gear.

Full trailer coming soon!

I won’t go on and on again about how surreal and incredible it is to ski off a luxury cruise liner on the Antarctic Penninsula. I already did that HERE.

Ice Ace Expeditions and my friend Doug Stoup have announced the dates and details on the 2013 ANTARCTIC SKI CRUISE. If those three words aren’t enough to sell you on the idea then I don’t know what else to do.

I guess I could through some video clips of the trips highlights together with some catchy tunes! Behold a tiny glimpse from our odyssey. We’ll have a full segment in the upcoming Powderwhore film due out this Fall.

It is a pricey adventure, but like Doug said there is nothing else like it on the planet!

 

Day Three La Grave

Share

This is our home for two weeks. It already stinks of ski boots after three days.

We ran into a couple of American guides Tyler Jones and Joe Valone on day two and they told us they’d meet us in the afternoon to give us some beta on some of the more hidden lines. I highly recommend getting a guide if you come to La Grave, there is a lot of amazing terrain that is hidden and without their knowledge it’s pretty stupid to go try to find it on your own. Dylan practicing his French while we wait for the guides.


The guides gave us details on several runs. They told us of one and said it was “all-time”. It was.


It is one of the coolest lines I have ever skied. My camera thought it looked so good that it decided to take a ride down right after Dylan. It didn’t handle the terrain as well as Dylan did, so sad to say that there won’t be any more blog posts. Guess you will just have to watch the movie when it comes out now. Au Revoir.
