Backcountry XC Skiing - Alaska

With the right conditions, xc skiing can be the best way into the backcountry! My goal is to show what's possible with nordic skiing, and maybe redefine how people perceive it. If you like the video, share it! Let me know what you think in the comments below!

Video shot entirely in Alaska, over the course of 5 outings in late April and early May 2016. The specific locations were in the Talkeetna Mountains near Hatcher Pass, and in the Alaska Range off of the Denali Highway in the Amphitheater Mountains. Each day we were out for about three hours and covered on average 40km per day with a minimum 1000m vertical.

Definitely faster than slogging on heavy backcountry gear.

Skiers in order of appearance:
David Norris – overall winner of 2016 American Birkebiner, WC skier
Tyler Kornfield – 2x US National Champion, Sprinting
Myself – I ski sometimes :)
Scott Patterson – 2016 National Champion, Distance, WC skier
Cole Talbot
Andrew Dougherty
Erik Flora – 2013 USOC National Coach of the Year – All sports

Shot on the GoPro Hero 4 Session with PolarPro Filter, mounted to my ski pole, and homemade stabilizer. Sorry for the shake!

Nordic Ski Techniques w/ Billy Demong

Five-time Olympian and World Cup champion Billy Demong's currently kickin' back in Sochi, presumably with a leopard cub on his lap and a coffee-table book of Putin photos in hand, as he waits for the chance to defend his Nordic Combined gold. Before he headed off to the Black Sea, he stopped by the Utah Olympic Park to offer up some pointers on how to improve skate-skiing form. It's not every day that you get tips from an Olympian, so pay careful attention and you'll become a rocket-powered racer before Billy's back in the USA with his next haul of precious medals. - See more at:
