The Yes crew looked past the obvious lines in the nearby Whistler backcountry opting to take a chance pioneering a new zone deeper in. What they found was a playground full of spines, pillows, windlips, and steep descents, which they sessioned at full force over the one-week window. Check out what goes on behind the scenes to successfully pull off such an ambitious plan.
