HELISKI.COM SITS DOWN WITH COLDSMOKE FOUNDERS

heliski-cover

Heliski.com interviews Randall Breitenbach and Imani Lanier, founders of the newly minted Coldsmoke Apparel, and the Coldsmoke Collective which includes Powder Mountain Cat and Heliskiing, and the Coldsmoke Awards Winter Film tour.

RB: “If my guides are going to be wearing this, this has to be the best stuff on the mountain. So I want the best new materials, I want the best zippers, I want the best seals, I want the pockets where the guides want them, so we spend over a season putting together  equipment that’s pretty outstanding and goes toe-to-toe with anybody honestly.”

FANNY PACKS AND PINK ONESIES THRILL IN “PROGRESSION IS REGRESSION”

Screen Shot 2013-12-20 at 1.00.16 PM

As the Daily Show and Colbert Report have proven, the best cultural criticism arrives in the guise of parody. The Bridger Brigade applied this approach to their local mountain politics in the meta-retro spoof “Progression is Regression.” View it along with more than 20 other films selected for the Coldsmoke Winter Film Tour Awards, and cast a vote for the Peoples Choice Award to be entered to win a $1000 and Canadian Catskiing trip.

Catch the last leg of the  Winter Film Tour tonight 12/20  at the Alta Arts Center in Utah.

COLDSMOKE x POWDER MOUNTAIN

The Coldsmoke Team was graced with a day of blue skies and fresh powder this past weekend in British Columbia. Our buds at Powder Mountain Heli and Cat Skiing gave us the royal treatment with some of the best backcountry we’ve touched all winter. Many thanks to our guides and cat drivers who made sure we got the best Powder Mountain has to offer.

Treat yourself to a day like ours: Powder Mountain Cat and Heli Skiing
