Whitecap 2014

Team Riff-Raff mobbed deep, at Whitecap Lodge this year. This was supposed to be a heli-assisted touring trip, but the proverbial greybird prevailed again(!) At least this time it brought about 50cm of fresh to go with the low visibility. Snow quality was excellent, and there was nothing to do but work for it. This lodge is practically spitting distance from the original FYi studio – yet it took me 10yrs to get in for a look and walk-about. Mcgilvery lodge would make MacGyver proud – amazing that everything worked! -TR

A few pics of the Audi ‘urban’ concept car currently on display at the Audi Forum at the Munich airport. Pretty cool micro-chariot! -TR

TYAX 2014

This years designer shred session landed at Tyax Lodge, just north of Pemberton. The crew wanted to experience something different from the last few seasons of epic tree jibbing in the Baldface POW-park. So we decided to go for a heli trip in the sized up terrain, where the north end of the Coast Range meets the south end of the Chilcotin Range. We were lucky enough to get good snow just-in-time for the trip. However visibility proved to be a challenge.The proverbial greybird prevailed, however that didn’t stop us from having a great time. Super fun crew this year. Already looking forward to the next adventure. -TR
