Island Lake Catskiing's blog
In 2010/11 Island Lake Catskiing, Mica Heliskiing and Sherpas Cinema partnered on a short film called The Balance of Powder. This was produced at the same time as the Sherpas award winning full length feature - ALL.I.CAN. The Balance of Powder has gone viral and surpassed 500,000 views on youtube!! This milestone is augmented by broadcast syndication across North Amercia and about 75,000 DVD produced and given away.
Wow, what a storm. Island Lake Catskiing has recieved over 130 cms in the last 4 days and it is still puking. The current storm shows no sign of abetting. Cold, low-density, over the head blower pow!! When our jaded, powder junkie guides say things like "all-time", "unbelievable" and "insane" you know things are serious.
Scot Schmidt is considered by most to be the original freeskier. He was the first pro to make a living at big mountain skiing. In addition, he was a shareholder at Island Lake Catskiing along with Craig Kelly, Mark Gallup, Jason Ford and Jake Blattner. It was at Island Lake that Craig and Scot tried to bring ski and snowboard culture together in the movies Siberia and P-tex, Lies and Duct Tape. Scot has catskied at Island Lake more then anyone except a few of the long-term guides. 350-400 days!
Check out this webisode from Island Lake Catskiing. There will be a full length documentary coming out next year.
