Urban Skiing in the Kootenays

JP Auclair Street Segment (from All.I.Can.) from Sherpas Cinema on Vimeo.

I often find the jibbing sections of ski movies to be annoying filler, but this was my favorite part of All I Can , the latest and highly acclaimed flick from Sherpas. Freeskiing pioneer JP Auclair gets creative on the streets of Rossland, Trail, and Nelson, in a tightly edited, funky sequence. Here’s a link to video of snowboarder Craig Kelly (RIP) making similar moves from 1991.
