En Route Sled BC

Sled-Accessed Whistler backcountry with Nimbus Independent.

Got 10 grand lying around? Buy a snowmobile. If ever there was an argument in favor of owning a high-octane depreciating asset, the third installment of the webisode series En Route by Nimbus Independent would be it. En Route Sled BC follows Eric Pollard, Andy Mahre, Chris Benchetler, and the rest of the Nimbus crew into the backcountry around Whistler, British Columbia. Using snowmobiles, they access some of the most mouth-watering terrain on the planet. Having already taken viewers to Japan and Austria’s Arlberg, season five of En Route ends on a high note with “Sled BC.” Between the storm-day pillow skiing, and the heli-caliber lines in the high alpine, it showcases the silly-fun skiing of the Nimbus crew. And if you do end up buying a sled after watching this episode, we suggest carrying some duct tape, a hack saw, and a pack of chewing gum to fix the damn thing when it breaks.

Want more? Check out some of Alex O’Brien’s beautiful still photography from the trip, and grab the December issue of Skiing Magazine to read the full story.
