Canada / 2019 / 17' / Italian premiere
The Spearhead Traverse is an iconic backcountry touring route in British Columbia, Canada. Today, the range faces questions related to the management of overcrowding, human impacts on the environment, and a host of safety concerns that come with increased numbers venturing into uncontrolled terrain. The film explores its legendary past, complex present, and unwritten future, as a group of today’s ski and snowboard athletes leave their own mark on the fabled chutes and steeps found along the route.
A versatile filmmaker, as a Cinematographer and Editor at Origin, he brings mountains to the screen through a wide range of documentary and commercial work. In recent years he has directed work for Arcteryx, Powder Magazine, Taos Ski Valley, and Foehn Clothing.
