The YES crew went deep. They scouted a rare new zone in the already bombarded Whistler backcountry spending three days breaking trail just accessing it. They camped, cut trees, waited out storms, heli’d and got gnarly. The mission was an effort to catch the essence of snowboarding in a natural state and express a rider’s individual bond with the mountain.
