The Sacred Grounds short film series takes the cast from their backyard of the southern Coast Range of BC, to the far reaches of the Northern BC/Alaska border, to the Japanese Alps, to the Columbia ranges of interior BC, to reaches of the Southern Chilcotins Mountains and beyond.
We are excited to share these adventures into undiscovered zones and ‘Sacred Grounds’ that hold the best possible terrain environment for displaying these riders passion for skiing. The mountains provide us with so many blessings but can also take it all away in an instant – for this respect is due, a life of dedication is needed, and a whole lot of effort is required, all of which is rewarded with the times of their lives when it all comes together.
Part 5 ‘Facets’ takes us on a journey to the less remote sacred places that still offer life changing experiences. Here we follow Kye to spots he enjoys his every day adventures. Unlike the previous episodes of this series these are mostly common places many skiers and outdoor enthusiasts enjoy, from riding lift access powder Crystal ridge and Spankys bowl in Whistler, to ski touring Blackcomb peak, to fly fishing the banks of the Skeena river, to skateboarding the infamous Whistler skatepark, to casting for Coho on the beaches of Tofino and spring shredding with friends on Blackcomb mountain.
On this final episode to the series we share the striking contrast of how casual yet special these daily outings that shape the life of skiers are, but also how important it is for us to seek the unknown now and then and explore the edge of our comfort zone. We end this series with a session of Alexi, Brin and Kye skiing and boarding some of the steepest and most intense zones deep in the backcountry near Squamish BC. This episode, more than any before it, is as real of profile as it gets highlighting the places that truly shaped Kye’s life and respect for not only the outer limits of his backyard, but also the nearest and dearest.
