Robin Van Gyn is a bastion of backcountry knowledge and is one of the most badass riders out there. She spends winters riding lines throughout Whistler and beyond, and spends summer entrenched in Argentina, guiding lucky adventurers to the goods at Cerro Catedral with SASS Global Travel. Robin is filming with Full Moon Films and her segment in SideTracked, a 7-part web series that highlights the eccentricities of each girl within Full Moon, just hit the interwebs and is an inspiring piece that focuses on the importance of knowledgable within the backcountry and beyond.
Watch Robin in action above, and stay tuned for an expanded feature we’re currently working on with Robin due out later this month.

Aside from your beacon, probe and shovel, the most valuable assets you can take with you in the backcountry are knowledge and sound common sense. Robin Van Gyn understands that the repercussions of one small oversight, mistake or distraction can be disastrous, thus she has outfitted herself with the tools necessary to stay safe in the wilderness. Robin just wants to ride powder; there’s no arguing with that.
