Chason Russell skis the Heavenly 11's.

Sometimes it’s hard to know what the day will bring? following a few all time kant-mak-em’s, I loosely made a plan while soaking in the second to last apre ski of the season. All we had decided was to bring skins and go for a tour. The afternoon turned to evening, and the skies had cleared for morning.

Behind the Scenes from the Antarctica Shoot for Wintervention

Blue bird skies, ice bergs as far as the eye can see and stunningly jagged, glaciated peaks make for stunning footage.

From November 1 through November 18, 2009 a camera crew and athletes from Warren Miller Entertainment lived aboard a ship off the coast of Antarctica. They took Zodiacs ashore to climb and ski the southern-most mountains in the world. Two mind blowing days on the peninsula were most memorable. An unusual high pressure system hovered for 48 hours creating two days that the ship captain said were one out of a thousand. The mix of blue bird skies, ices bergs as far as the eye can see and stunningly jagged, glaciated peaks was a visual overload.

Never mind the prevailing wisdom that skiing was invented in Austria or Scandinavia. It was created in western China’s Altai Mountains. The film crew went to meet the living representatives of the oldest ski-bum lineage on earth.

WARREN MILLER CAMERAMAN CHRIS Patterson first heard of an ancient ski culture deep in China’s northwestern frontier on an NPR program while driving around his hometown of Bozeman, Montana, in August of 2008.
