I had to conclude my videopart with Absinthe and was gonna link up with Blair Habenicht and Manuel Diaz, both intimidating freeride aces with sniper precision when it comes to riding lines. We met up in Seattle where Blair lives and Manuel spends his wintertime. So we decided to drive to Canada where Absinthe filmer Justin Hostynek lives. The Hotel hook up at Revelstoke had it all, from nice beds to a swimmingpool and hot-tub. Little did we know that we were gonna need those amenities since the weather was shutting us down for the planned Heliing. It was Friday 13 and we tried to go snowmobile but it caught on fire, also the weather is too warm to find any decend snow! We ended up hiking around aimlessly. The lunch we had prepared, goat cheese spread with salmon, brings back the bright side of an unproductive day. This evening Scott Newsome, who is a renowned alpine guide, dropped by our hotel to show us some photos of the area that his Eagle Pass Helicopter service flies to. As our window of opportunity almost slimmed to none we did lift off this morning at six thirty. After one week of waiting for this moment we had an exact route in mind. Unfortunately Manuel had tweaked his knee very badly on a fall the day before, so his seat in the heli stayed open for a second guide to come with us. We landed and took photos of the mountain peak to memorize the way down once we got dropped up there. Blair went down the middle testing the slope since we encountered some unstable top layers of the snow. But we had to move quick since overcast was rolling in. We flew 2hours of helicopter and left that same day back to Seattle. We targeted for another Alaska window which was gonna happen soon after a anticipated reset.
