This is what Whitefish looks like...KnowBuddies edit

The terrain at Whitefish is endless. Whether youíre looking for 3 foot pillows in the trees, natural hips, or cliffs of any size, youíll find what youíre looking for. Unless youíre a total kook, you canít have a bad time at Whitefish.

best representation of WF on film i've seen just dropped today. i saw these guys in the line back in Feb. didn't know who they were but it's not everyday you see a crew with backpacks and a big Red type camera obviously going to film stuff...

fuck yea. this video is pretty much exactly how i ride, just swap the laid out backies for more and bigger cliffs. cuz i'm an old pussy an flipping is for the chirren'

that terrain is pretty much identical to what we ride out here too... i have an old great friend from hs that lives in WF. i need to go out there and visit her it looks like. :thumbsup:

Sweet vid Cass!! Looks like I got another place to add to the "bucket list!" :thumbsup:

CassMT 03-26-2014 01:46 PM

watched a few times now, i'd say better that it represents the trees and scenery, and the overall feel very well, but it doesn't show the real steeps, rocks and general gnar we have...i can understand though! probably a lot harder to shoot that stuff and in a day or 2 to shoot you can only do so much...3 min vid just won't cover it

example :good chute/ rock shot....Evan's Heaven, all that is inbounds and open

apparently this was just the beginning of a full MT tour these guys did, next edits dropping everyday starting now. i'll keep putting em in here...looking forward to that cuz my experience at any other MT resorts is Very Limited, time to see what's up out there and spread my wings next season...

Well then, Whitefish just got added to the list as well.

That line at 3:10 is my bread and butter. Love shit like that.

CassMT 03-26-2014 03:22 PM

well if you like that 3:10 shot you would like 3/4 of the mountain

https://scontent-a-ord.xx.fbcdn.net/...29632581_n.jpg

that's the front 1/3 of the resort, the best of the glades and gnar are not visible. lovit when its pow and on the chair visitors will ask, "what runs have you been doing?" cuz they see my pow/shiteatin' grin. and i honestly don't know what to answer cuz i haven't done any runs, ha, so i send em under the chair

speedjason 03-26-2014 04:33 PM

the pow. drooling.:huh:

Whitefish stomps, haven't been there in a number of years, but since Peak Adventures SnoCats in Idaho was shutdown, I've thought of a little farther drive east to Whitefish.

Long live the NW.

Just curious, what was the Swiss flag at 2:37 about ?

CassMT 03-27-2014 12:40 PM

not totally sure about the flag, is that just a ski patrol flag? maybe one of the cat guys is swiss, dunno.

they fly both Mapleleaf and StarsNStripes all over the mountian though, which is proper because without our Northern friends this resort, and the whole town of WF for that matter, would not exist

Clayton Bigsby 03-27-2014 01:47 PM

Just curious, I was born in Bern Switzerland and I have a Swiss flag tattooed on me, I also have a Swiss flag sticker on my packasport, I can't tell you how many F'ing times I've had people ask me if I'm in the Red Cross, even though the cross is WHITE. Now that I've mentioned it, I bet you'll start to notice it

As far as the Canadians riding your mtn, we at Mount BAKER know how that is, nothing against the Canadians, I used to live in Terace B.C. (powder capital, next to BAKER), half of the cars at BAKER are from B.C., just wished they weren't there to cut down on the liftline size. BAKER and Stevens both need to expand their terrain, you know it's bad when they are turning people away every weekend at Stevens, thank god I've only ridden weekdays for the last 15+ years
