The third installment of The Sacred Grounds series, “Migration” starts with the soundtrack and visuals as if it’s a trailer for the latest Hollywood blockbuster. A deep, meaningful and almost poetic monologue sets up Kye Petersen, Logan Pehota and Flo Golier to take creative lines through the steep, unforgiving faces, before setting up camp, in the Selkirk mountains. The pace and music calm down as they take calmer, but no less impressive paths through the pillows.
Kai then moves on to Mica Heliskiing lodge, Revelstoke BC, where he’s joined by Ian Macintosh and Callum Pettit along with snowboarder [and actual Hollywood stuntman] Brin Alexander. Here they are greeted by seemingly endless powder as they tear down pillows and spines before threading their way through the bare trees lower down. The voiceover says the words: “The loathed term down days, never gets uttered at Mica.” Luckily he’s referencing the original meaning of the phrase and not this fine publication!
From YouTube: Part 3 ‘Migration’ of the Sacred Grounds film series is quite possibly the heaviest riding we’ve seen yet in this series, wildest cinematography and the most uniquely featured terrain stacked with pillows, spines, and overhead blower powder. Get ready, sit back and enjoy the ride into more Sacred Grounds.
