Army

Alexandra Armstrong loves to ski. But that passion comes at a price. Sacrificing financial stability and a permanent address to chase the dream. Alexandra works hard all summer to ski all winter.

But in the end she wouldn't have it any other way. “Without following that passion and seeing if there is success in it, or even if there’s failure. You’ll be happy because you are doing what you love and that’s the most important thing.”

Alexandra Armstrong is a Ski Patroller at Lake Louise Ski Resort and coaches at the Lake Louise All Mountain Club. She skis for Ski Big 3, Smith Optics, The North Face, K2 Skis and Banff Soul.

Telemark Love Letter

Journalist Paul Karchut has been exploring the mountains for over twenty years with his telemark skis. Paul’s love letter to the sport he adores captures the inner dialogue we’ve all had with ourselves on the skin track.

"These connections that I've made between people and places, right here in the powder and the quiet. This is what it's all about, this is what keeps me coming back."

Story of a Ski Tour: I

Story of a Ski Tour is the simplest of concepts – tell the story of a single ski tour. But there is beauty in this simplicity - a ski tour is a complete story with a beginning, middle and end. We aim to capture the essence of these life-affirming moments. The experiences better off had. The poetry found in a single ski turn in perfect powder.

This first episode was filmed at Crowfoot Trees on the Icefields Parkway, in Banff National Park.
