Jibbing in the backcountry? Yes please! Mitchel Brower had decided to bring this idea back, hauled some PVC pipes into a zone in Utah and invited Tom Wallisch and Robert Ruud to sesh the crazy setup on a dreamy pow day. Enjoy the edit and read up on how it came about from Mitchel himself here.

From YouTube: If you’re a park skier who enjoys skiing powder, you have probably dreamt of hitting a rail into a powder landing. We also had this dream and got to work to make it happen! Watch the result of our long days filled with snowmobiling, powder, construction, and… grinding a rail in the backcountry!

Music: Eyes by Clio, Roberto Ferrante
