Summer Skiing: Tetons to the Tordrillos

July 6th, 2012

SKIING GRAND TETON

On Saturday, June 16, three of our Backcountry.com team members—Andrew McLean, Chris Davenport, and myself—climbed up the Stettner/Chevy/Ford route of the Grand Teton and skied the East face for a film project with Brainfarm Cinema and The One Eyed Bird.

We each had skied the Grand before, so for this particular adventure the route was familiar ground and we could focus on the film project objectives. The weather was perfect and the conditions were excellent. With a helicopter circling above, we headed up the ice-filled couloir link-up with camera equipment and ropes dangling around us. With the additions of Camp4Collective film pros, Renan Ozturk and Jimmy Chin, and JHMG support from Brian Warren and Chris Figenshau, our team of seven moved up the climb smoothly and carefully.

Reaching the summit before midday, our crew had some time to enjoy the spectacular views and relax in the comradery that comes with sharing time in the mountains. Then, one by one, Andrew, Chris and I each dropped in from the summit block for some June corn snow down the steep, convex ramp of the 13,776ft peak. That afternoon, with the entire team safely down in the Lupine Meadows parking lot, we toasted Coronas, radiating content from a good day in the Tetons. Read more…

The Sound of Music, Made by Bikes

July 3rd, 2012

Thanks to Loving the Bike’s Facebook Page we came across this video, aptly named Bicycle Sounds.

The short film showcases nearly three minutes of musical entertainment made entirely by bikes. That includes chains, wheels, spokes (and their adornments), bells, wheels and the like. The result is mesmerizing, which is precisely why the film itself took first place in the Bike Shorts Film Festival held this spring in New York.

Take three minutes of your day and check out this film. The real gem is in the sounds it produces but we recommend you watch it as well. Its simple yet sleek camerawork reminds us of an updated yet undeniably old school video you might see on the likes of (and this is not meant as an insult, but rather as the utmost of compliments) retro Sesame Street. All old-school kids shows aside, it’s also very cool to see how the sounds you’re hearing were made by way of a bike and just a few props.

Enjoy.
