A Ski & Snowboard Season in Fernie BC

Back when I was still Where Next Photography, I spent the 2010/2011 winter season in the Canadian Rockies. I was mainly there to ski and snowboard but couldn’t resist making this short film. I spent the majority of the time in my spiritual home of Fernie, BC with footage also being shot in Red Mountain, Revelstoke and Kicking Horse. If you enjoy the video, I’ll love you forever if you “Like” my facebook page at facebook.com/RossFairgrieveDotCom.

The Music is:

Phoenix – Lisztomania
Bat For Lashes – Daniel
RJD2 – Ghostwriter
Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros – Home
The Cinematic Orchestra – Soda

It was filmed using the following kit:

Canon 5D Mark II Digital SLR
Canon 7D Digital SLR
Canon 24-105mm f/4L IS lens
Canon 70-200m f/4L IS lens
Tokina 10-17mm f/3.5-4.5 fisheye lens
Panasonic Lumix LX5 compact camera
GoPro Hero HD helmetcam (x2)
Homemade slider
Manfrotto 190 series carbon fiber tripod
LCDVF screen magnifier
Yongnuo timer release for time-lapse shots

A massive thank you goes out to my friend Jonas Bigler for kindly donating his helmetcam footage from the first couple of weeks…and for his beautiful singing.
