Blower Powder


This year several of Oakley’s top skiers headed to Retallack, BC to score some epic mid-winter powder. The list of shredders was stacked with the legends of backcountry skiing – Shane McConkey, Seth Morrison and Dan Treadway and an top up and coming phenom backcountry slayer – Kye Petersen.

The on snow experience at Retallack is straight out of a TGR or MSP video with the vertical pitch ranging from 35 to 50 degrees and several feet of blower powder to rail into. Highlights of the shredding we did were the quality of the snow, big pillow lines, fun cliff drops and just insanely deep freshies.

Shane, Seth, Dan and Kye found some sick lines and produced some moments in time, check out the photos.
