In episode three of the Road to Revelstoke miniseries, featuring Wyatt Caldwell, the Caldwell brothers meet up with freeskiers Lexi du Pont and Lynsey Dyer at Eagle Pass Heli. After a month of pounding storm, all three members of the Eddie Bauer team land to bluebird conditions in the stacked Monashee tenure at Scott Newsome’s hometown heli op. What they find is challenging terrain, a nexus of pro talent and an attitude of respect that allows them to test themselves on steep, gnarly terrain.
For those who missed part one and deux, the recap is below:
Last winter we sent our Eddie Bauer ski and snowboard team up the Powder Highway of interior BC for two epic road trips. We recapped the first Stellar Media trip last month on the LYA blog, but the sequel was a whole different story. It started when we pointed Eddie Bauer shredder Wyatt Caldwell north from Idaho with a road map, a camper, a sled trailer, a promise of heli time at Eagle Pass and his brother Yancy to document the experience.
The Idaho boys made it over the border, beyond the Nelson, BC vortex, through the mountain passes, on the last ferry and even to grandma’s house before landing their program in the crossroads powder hamlet of Revelstoke and the driveway of Echo Bay Lodge. But they arrived with perfect timing to bluebird conditions after a month of storm. The result of their brothers-on-the-road journey is a five-part, mini-series that we’ve called, The Road to Revelstoke, which blends classic Caldwell flavor with the epic powder road trip experience.
