The Sacred Grounds short film series, takes the cast from their backyard of the southern Coast Range of BC, to the far reaches of the Northern BC/Alaska border, to the Japanese Alps, to the Columbia ranges of interior BC, to reaches of the Southern Chilcotins Mountains and beyond. We are excited to share these adventures into undiscovered zones and 'Sacred Grounds' that hold the best possible terrain environment for displaying these riders passion for skiing.

The mountains provide us with so many blessings but can also take it all away in an instant - for this respect is due, a life of dedication is needed, and a whole lot of effort is required, all of which is rewarded with the times of their lives when it all comes together. "Migration" takes us on an annual journey east from the coast mountains into the Selkirk and western Rocky mountains of interior BC.

Here we visit one of the interior’s top pillow skiing destinations and explore new corners of a zone we’ve revisited for over a decade. With a week of big storms pounding down and an all star cast, the crew set up at the lodge with eyes set of the most classic lines that Mica is known for, some of which haven’t been repeated for over a decade (Mr. Wiggles).

Thankfully despite the snow falling nearly non stop, the crew manages to ride all of which they set their goals towards, in some of the deepest snow possible. This ended up being the trip of a lifetime and a session that surely will go down in the history books.

‘Migration’ is quite possibly the heaviest riding we’ve seen yet in the Sacred Grounds series, the wildest cinematography and the most uniquely featured terrain stacked with pillows, spines, and overhead blower powder. Get ready, sit back and enjoy the ride into more Sacred Grounds.

Riders: Brin Alexander, Kye Petersen, Flo Goeller, Callum Pettit, Logan Pehota, Ian Macintosh
