Things started off well in Tamarack Idaho. Vibes were beyond good when I met up with Ben Moxham and PBP Filmer (and my good friend) Ross Reid. The first day we woke to thick fog and damp conditions, but as we ascended the final chair to the top of Tamarack, we broke through the clouds into perfect bluebird! The snow up top was very good, despite not being deep or fresh, but we were able to find some amazing stashes and get some good shots. Tamarack is Moxham’s home stomping grounds, so he had it on lock down, and pretty much every run was spent hiking out of bounds along the North Bowls where we would drop into untouched bowls and ridges with countless spines, cliffs, and pillows. The natural terrain here is so amazing and I was so excited, right up my ally, I love natural playgrounds.
You may be asking yourself, “what is a vholdr?” Yeah, i was too when the subject line “vholdr” showed up in my email inbox. Well, i guess i’d say that its a revolutionary helmet camera system with NO attachments… as far as helmet cams go, think of it as a friend with benefits! Your dad’s helmet cam probably has an obnoxious cord and a camera and TAPES that you have to lug around… not vholdr, it’s dope like that.
