Kyle Miller finally got his heli fix in New Zealand, making use of the access to shred the Tasman Glacier beneath the shadow of Mt. Cook. But he quickly poached his travel budget again and signed up for more, linking up with a crew from Splitn2NZ for another heli drop—this time for a trip to the Franz Josef and Fox Glaciers that led to a summit of the other Glacier Peak.
Kyle Miller has been bouncing around New Zealand since August, living a Southern Hemisphere life of camper vans, storm fronts, and split missions. We hear from Kyle in unpredictable intervals, with a flurry of emails and photo drops downloading his latest Kiwi mission deep into the mountains of the island nation—and usually asking us for a bit more budget to scrape up a little heli time. Then Kyle drops off the radar only to re-emerge with another incredible story of another incredible place.
Jake Norton and David Morton set out for India with a mission to follow the Ganges from its source at the Gangotri Glacier to its outlet at the world’s largest delta at the Bay of Bengal. Their mission flowed from a desire to better understand the relationship between a dramatically growing population and the crisis of securing clean, drinkable water for all. Now that Norton and Morton have returned from India, they have been describing their cultural experiences and impressions of the subcontinent.
A few weeks back, we reported on Jake Norton and David Morton’s attempt to climb Chaukhamba IV in the Indian Garhwal. But their trip to the source of the Ganges River on the Gangotri Glacier was only phase one in an expedition to follow India’s lifeline 2,600 kilometers to the world’s largest delta in the Bay of Bengal.
A few weeks back, we ran a report setting up the big-screen debut of Mason Earle’s Bartlett Project in the Chuck Fryberger Film Exposure Vol. 1. Mason Earle was indeed on hand and we asked him for a quick recap of his experience seeing himself, and his project, on the big screen in the People’s Republic of Boulder. His first recap was written in climbing guidebook style with a route description that read, “Wednesday night we head to the theater. Good turnout–over 600 folks show up for the show. Lots of familiar faces, and climbing acquaintances. We find some seats. The film begins.”
For the past few weeks, we’ve been running the stories and images from the Eddie Bauer ski team trip with Stellar Media for National Geographic on the Powder Highway. he trip took them from the Rotor Lodge and Revelstoke to Kicking Horse and, for their final stop, to Golden Alpine Holidays. It’s been a long road trip through interior BC, filled with stunning shots, deep powder and great footage, but this last edit tops them all. T
Last winter the Eddie Bauer ski team, in partnership with Stellar Media, headed north on a road trip of epic proportions to The Powder Highway of British Columbia. We’ve been retelling the story of the road trip all month on the Live Your Adventure blog, with powder stopovers at K2′s Rotor Lodge, Eagle Pass Heli, Revelstoke Mountain Resort and Kicking Horse. But the last leg of the trip, with a ten day mission to Golden Alpine Holidays, provided the most blower pow of the entire epic.
