This is 17-year-old Torin Yater-Wallace. The video is worth watching for the archive footage alone, and despite the overly-dramatic music (and all the Targets), this is a nice biography of POWDER's 2013 top Young Blood (from issue 41.6), the list of the best skiers 18 and under.

Words: J.P. Auclair I didn't have any film commitment last week, so I took a chance and did something I had been waiting to do since last December—specifically, pack the car, go to Cham, and catch up with the characters over there. The weather wasn't looking too good, but everyone I spoke to told me to make my way and "see what happens." I also had new planks from Armada to try out so I figured, even if it was stormy, I could still go for a couple turns. Turns out I had an amazing three days. I shot all the footage from my GoPro and edited it, as well. Fresh track on the north face of the Aiguille and hot lapping Les Grands Montets. A huge thanks to Andreas, Bjarne, Tof, Tom & Ben for letting me tag along, for setting up bomber anchors and opening routes! Read Andreas Fransson's account here. Read Ben Briggs' account here.

“This winter in Jackson Hole was a bit up and down, but when it was good it was great. Although the mountain received 383 inches of snow, which is less than average, we were able to take advantage of it. Jeff Annetts and Tim Swartz , my Fischer teammates, are my main ski partners and are always down to do some filming or shooting. It allows us to collaborate and put out a few fun team style edits a year. This year the snow pack was fairly stable which allowed us to ski some of the bigger exposed lines, that, some years, are too dangerous to ski. Plus, we got plenty of over-the-head storm days.“ - Tyler Horne

"Dreaming is a film about the contrast of beauty and danger inherent in backcountry skiing. These far away mountains untouched by humans, left pristine from the last snowfall. Once accessed hold limitless potential and call on only the creativity of the riders to select what mark they will leave on the mountain side."- Jamie Tanner

Being a ski photographer is a dream job, right? You get to ski rad places and don't have to huck your meat unless you want to. Instead, you just have to carry a heavy pack. In this video, POWDER contributing photographer Ian Coble talks about how he went from being a ski bum/archeologist to making a living shooting photos. Here's his behind-the-scenes insight on the behind-the-scenes video. "A couple months back, Tyler Ceccanti and his filmer friend Chris King approached me about doing a behind-the-scenes look at what goes into shooting ski photos. I'm a huge fan of behind-the-scenes videos, so I was easily convinced that it would be a fun project to work on. The next step was trying to find the right day to shoot. As the season progressed, we kept missing storm cycles and a time when our three schedules lined up. Finally, a couple weeks back, I was headed up to Stevens Pass to do some shooting, and the timing was perfect for Tyler and Chris, too. We grabbed Nash Grimm, an up-and-coming ripper here in the Pacific Northwest, to join the crew for the day and headed out. Of course, the one day we picked to shoot dealt us crazy weather. Puking snow, howling wind, sun, clouds, and a little bit of everything in between. We were eventually blown off the mountain by high wind and had to resort to creative locations to keep getting shots. Not always ideal, but sometimes that's the weather mother nature deals ya."

Cortina d’Ampezzo is one of the most beautiful resorts in the heart of the Dolomites, and I had the luck to grow up and learn to ski there. The Dolomites, beside being a wonderful landscape filled with incredible looking peaks, hide some amazing ski lines and couloirs that carve big walls for thousands of meters. The vicinity of the towns, roads and lifts, combined with the few people looking for that kind of thrill, makes these mountains a perfect playground for ski mountaineering. The slow Italian rhythms and the coffee breaks make me relax and enjoy the surrounding atmosphere with no rush. The lines I choose to ski are not the popular ones, so there is no need to race to be the first at the top of the line. There, I usually ski first tracks, anyway… I hope you enjoy this excursion off of the beaten tracks and stay tuned for the next episode coming out on the 16th of April.—Giulia Monego From filmmaker Bjarne Salen: The Dolomites is an unwritten book. Here you find 1,000-meter couloirs straight from the lift, with gigantic walls on the sides. For me as a filmmaker, it was really cool to be there with Giulia, who’s had the Dolomites as her family home from when she was a kid. Couloirs, no people, the mountains, pizza and good coffee... What more do you need for an amazing ski trip?
