Bomb Snow spent five weeks exploring the incredible country of Chile.
Every year the cycle is the same. The air gets colder and the first dustings of snow start blanketing the mountains as excitement grows in the gut of the ski community. Gradually, the snow begins to pick up, new lines begin to fill, electrifying the imaginations of observing locals. Winter's cold brings the occasional frost bite as it passes. Spring finally comes, the snowpack settles to rest, and a late storm brings optimal conditions. The following days are what every ski turn, cliff send, booter-session, and powder day of the season have lead up to. Join the Bridger Brigade as they put down their après beers, strap on their boots, fire up their sleds, rip out into the mountains, and FKNSNDR!!

In the modern day, a globalized ski industry has transformed the ski bum's dream ski trip into a worldwide powder conquest. What were once 30 hour pilgrimages across the mainland U.S. have become inter-continental journeys through foreign societies. In episode 2 of Bomb Snow TVs 3rd season, the classic ski bum is united with the modern. 4 skiers in their mid 20s join with 4 of their 30, 40, and 50 year old counterparts on an epic journey to the one and only, JAPAN!

Nestled deep in the Purcell Mountains of British Columbia, the Boulder Hut welcomed the Bomb Snow TV crew back for their second year. Owned and operated by Mark and Sarah Yancey and their two children, the hut provides a true backcountry experience; an ideal back-drop of large mountains, tight chutes, steep couloirs, and gladed powder runs. Better snow conditions and beautiful weather made it possible for us to ski lines and build jumps in places we had been drooling over the previous winter. The boulder hut is an optimal place to unplug for a week and shred powder with your friends. For us, it is the ultimate way to check out.

YLESKI 2015 is the culmination of Wiley Miller’s 2015 winter season. Shot almost exclusively in the Columbia Mountains of interior British Columbia. The winter of 2015 was adverse in many areas of North America. Finding good conditions remained challenging. Patience, and persistence was key in finding safe, suitable snowpack. This is the second installment to the YLESKI series, highlighting the best of Wiley Miller and his approach to snow. “I set out this winter to spend my time exploring new mountains, scouting lines, and finding natural airs in the terrain to work with. This season ski touring, route finding, and line selection were set in priority above building jumps and locating step-downs. It was an alternative I decided to take when the snow started to fly in November of 2014. I set out to do more skiing and less building, setting up-tracks versus cutting blocks for jumps. The sport becomes so dynamic when you’re working with larger terrain. It’s challenging, I love the experience, and constant education that takes place out there in the mountains.” Produced and Edited by: Magnafire Media - Darren Rayner & Jan Schuster Filmed by: Darren Rayner, Freedle Coty, Austin Ramaley, Sean Logan Music: The Blue Angel Lounge - Looming Solid Massive Steamer
Bomb Snow spent five weeks exploring the incredible country of Chile. Along with CASA Tours we met up with locals, hit as many hot springs as possible, skied the best resorts and backcountry, experienced an earthquake, missed a volcanic eruption, and took in the festivities during Chilean Independence Day.

On a quest to figure out if the heart of skiing still has a pulse, Bomb Snow's journalistic duo headed to Marquette Mountain, in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Thank you Sponsors: Xevo Optics, Panda Poles and Wildrye Distillery. Directed by: Gavin Gibson Cinematography and Editing by: Thomas Vincent
It's not Chatham's single electric rope tow. It's not the hand shoveled jumps, or the homemade grooming rake towed by a snowmobile. It's not the 50-year-old A-frame cabin at the bottom of the run with decades worth of carvings marking generations of children's passing or the bonfire outside surrounded by parents bundled up in Sorrels and snowmobile jackets. It's really about the absence of everything. The purpose of this place resonates easily through the empty hardwoods into my eardrums as the sound of laughter. Thirty shiny-nosed kids are having the time of their lives on a Wednesday evening, and now I know why Chatham is the kind of place where skiing still lives.

Hancock, Michigan Locals Bill Marlor and Lori Hauswirth share their home hill. Serviced by two double chairs and a T-Bar that never shuts down for wind, Ripley is hidden in plain view by a bigger mountain further north's marketing shadow. Without local-knowledge, nearly every one of Ripley's runs is visible from the base area. The total elevation is 444-feet. None of these facts matter because my cohort on this journey, Thomas, hasn't stopped giggling since he put his boots on. As a born-and-raised Montanan, this ski area is as foreign as the moon.

Getting scared early season in the steep narrows of the Sickle Couloir. The Sickle is one of the 50 Classic ski descents of North America, and I have been eyeballing it for years now. Central Idaho has been getting hammered with snow so far this season, and we were stoked to get an early descent of the Sickle. I think it's safe to say we were the first down it this winter! It was an honor to get to shred it with Dylan Crossman and Karl Fostvedt! Cheers! Thanks to everyone that came out to the Fishhook Yurt for a few great days of skiing! Let's do it again next year. Special Thanks to Sun Valley Trekking, Bomb Snow, Cast Touring, Orage, 4FRNT, Mystery Ranch Backpacks, Smith Optics, Voke Tab, and everyone that's down to party
If it was always easy to get there then everyone would be there when you arrived. Kyle Taylor, Randy Evans and Matt Evans know the the journey there is part of the fun and adventure of skiing. These boys always get it done -- Thanks for the edit Bomb Snow!!

During the month of March, we found ourselves in a world of chocolates, cigarettes, and extreme vertical relief, immersed in the seemingly unreal reality of Chamonix. Inspired by many years of Greg Stump films like the Blizzard of Aahhh's and License to Thrill, our stoke level rose with every meter gained as we ascended the Aquille du Midi for the first time. In Graduate School for "ski-extreme", the word gnarly is entirely redefined. With exposure that would pucker Chuck Norris and locals whose daily lives involve cheating death, our egos were immediately shoved down our throats. This first half of our euro-trip forever changed our conception of EXTREME.

You never know what early season skiing will entail. Sometimes the snow pack sucks, and sometimes the stars align and you get an incredible start to the season. With early snowfall and bomber conditions, this fall was a great start to the winter in Montana. Eager to keep the fresh turns coming, The Bomb Snow crew set out chasing storms down to Utah and north to Canada. We made the most of what we had, and had some great adventures along the way.

After a rowdy eviction party, we hit the road early on April 1st with Alaska segments from old MSP and TGR movies burned in our brains. With 2500 miles in front of us, we knew we were in for a long ride, but the prospects of skiing steep blower spines kept our spirits high. Loaded with 5 snowmobiles on an old rusty trailer, we were clueless as to the hardships that would be brought on by the rough roads of Northern Alberta and the Yukon. Bomb Snow TV Episode 4, the last of the season produced by the Bridger Brigade, is a brief account of our adventures to Alaska. From Montana, to Valdez, to Haines, and back to Montana, our journey was filled with highlights and disasters. We have gained a new understanding and appreciation for the Alaskan skiing journey. After 7 days and 6 nights in the truck, 4 blown trailer tires, and 2 broken trailer arms, our hardships were outweighed by a plane drop and an unreal 4 days spent on a glacier in Haines (Minute 10). Needless to say, the Alaskan experience was humbling. The sick terrain and incredible challenges have revamped our ambition toward skiing. With new determination and new goals, nothing will stop us from spending our Spring's in Alaska.

Bomb Snow TV is back at it again with another season chock full of leisurely activities sure to wet the appetite of any winter enthusiast. Follow the boys as they drive around the States, dreaming of Japanese and European ski vacations, all while shralping their way into Canada and further north into the deep Alaskan wilderness. This is Season 2, "A Gentlemanly Lifestyle." We will be dropping the ball monthly starting sometime in December. Until then, work on your ground strokes.

The Bomb Snow crew has been getting after it since the first snowfall of the season. Searching for Solstice documents the cold wet storms that hit Montana in December 2013, frequently dropping their loads across most of the state. Although the early season has seen wide ranging temperatures resulting in un-bonded layers and rotten snow near the ground, we've been lucky enough to get a pleasant amount of snow fall and we're still smiling. A friend said it best, “This has been a very emotional winter so far.” Even though we've had to constantly be on our toes and heels (rocks are still creeping below the surface) the skiing has still been deep. With the occasional short trip around Bozeman to find new terrain, revisiting some favorite zones and skiing some at the resort, the short days of December have been plenty good to us.

This winter brought change to some of the Bomb Snow crew members as they decided to split off from Montana and join the full-time RV life with some friendly folks in Washington State. Sean, Mark and Tyler decided to buy a camper and move to Steven's Pass in order to pursue their dreams of living in a van up on the mountain. The parking lot life was a new adventure in itself. Beautiful in it's simplicity, life was good. Eat, shovel, snowboard, sleep, repeat. Jibbing logs, airing RV's, and bonking houses in order to get by while the low tide hung around indefinitely was part of their daily routine. Fresh terrain, endless campfires and weekend mayhem ensued and then a quick trip back to Montana for a refreshing couple weeks of the light stuff.
The Bomb Snow Brigade sent it up North to Revelstoke, British Columbia for the month of January to chase deep pow and explore new zones. Upon arrival, 40-60 + cm of fresh made for unbelievable shredding. Stop number one of the Freeride World Tour was set to take place early the first week, but was delayed due to consistent snow. After a week of freeskiing the resort, the comp went down and did not disappoint. Huge airs and burly lines were thrown down on 'Mac Daddy' face, and it was the smooth, fluid lines that came out on top. After the competition, we fueled the sleds and explored the endless terrain surrounding Revy. We met up with a few locals and friends, and got after it while the conditions were prime. A huge wind event took place upon the skies breaking blue, leaving the alpine scoured or loaded. However, the tree/pillow skiing remained all time. The wind spell did not last long, and soon enough the skies were puking powder once again. Rogers Pass was our calling for a solid week of touring. Rogers is a unique area, sketchy and rewarding. Around every corner is another corner, and another, full of chutes, faces, pillows, and glaciers. It was mind-blowing to become more familiar with the terrain and see the potential the Pass holds. We were extremely fortunate to spend time with such amazing people in Revelstoke and to be able to explore and ski such sick terrain. There were countless 'zones' added to the check list for next year. Hope you enjoy our second episode, and hope you get REVELSTUCK!

Ba ba da boopi!! After two solid weeks spent exploring Chamonix, we continued on with our European adventure toward Cortina. Drawn by rumors of endless couliors and trams, deep pow, and leather and fur clad cougars, we packed nine dudes, 18 pairs of skis, and a seemingly endless supply of meat and cheese into a rental van and headed for Italy. After a questionable Saint Patty's day spent crashing a family birthday party followed by a night spent on a random beach outside of Venice, we finally found ourselves in the Dolomites.
