It’s now 15 years since we lost Craig. I’m spending the day shipping 50 photos of him to the kind people who supported @gerhardmg. Do something good today.

Here’s Mikee HK backside nose picking some jury rigged quarterpipe we threw together in the castle world in Blackcomb. Now he lives in the tropics with his beautiful wife and dog, and spends lots of time on boats. Things move pretty fast.

Partial eclipse in Gastown 5. Kim disappears in Valencia 6. Is my favourite shot of the year: Caravan. On our second trip with our new old trailer "Terry," there was a big moon peaking through the clouds and we took the time to do some light painting. #danophoto

First light at Big Bar Lake 5. Searcher 6. Old lady in an alley in Valencia 7. Multiples 30.1

Hi friends. This is a classic photo of Craig Kelly from 1995 and it’s going to help us do a little good. As some of you know, my friend @gerhardmg is in an experimental treatment to beat stomach cancer. It’s difficult and expensive and he and his family need support. So I’m making an open edition of this image in 8.5x11 inches, with 100% of the profits going to support G. It will come signed, it will be printed on super nice paper, you will put it on your wall and feel good. $75 bucks. Send me a DM. Let’s do this.

Ejack model? Oh hells yes! Loved the Mullair but it’s time for a new ride. And I get to look at steelhead and guitar graphics all day! Thanks for the guidance Rook. You rule. Riding and shooting with Ejack was always so rad, glad to be continuing that trip.

Yesterday BC banned the hunting of Grizzly bears 🐻. I’m glad to know that these big pigs are going to be protected from now on. I shot this photo on the Atnarko River in 2014 while I was a guest of the Tweedsmuir Park Lodge. One of the most profound experiences of my life. #danophoto

In case you’re missed it, I’m giving away a copy of “Out West,” the book I wrote for the 30th anniversary of Westbeach. I decided to do it after listening to the Kevin Young episode of the @fnradpodcast. I recommend giving it a listen. Here’s KY at Squaw Valley in 1994. If you want to win the book, go to the previous post and leave a comment.

#contestalert I just listened to the Kevin Young episode of the @fnradpodcast and it brought back a lot of memories. I decided to pull out some shots from 1991 all the way to 1999. Since KY is on the cover of the book I wrote for Westbeach, I’ve decided to give one away to a lucky instagram follower. Just leave a comment and I’ll pick one random name on Friday and ship it off to you. It’s out of print so this may be your only chance to get your mitts on one!!! Thanks for the interview @shredjesus. Loved it. .

The old knee held up pretty good today. Something like $15-20 bucks a run. Totally worth it.

The thing that is rad about Whistler and Blackcomb is that there are so many hidden zones and secret places to explore. On this day in 1999 I would have been 29, so that means I had 23 years under my belt on these mountains. We still managed to find a new, massive zone that had a difficult entrance but then opened up to a huge set of possibilities. Sansalone was a perfect partner for a mission like this. Curious and versatile, he was ready to charge whatever we found...

Here’s Ranquet poppin a method over some rocks in the Whistler backcountry in 1997. It was nice to have so many visits from the Washington state boys in those days. There was always a couch to crash on and I left the front door unlocked. .

My first new snowboard boots in a decade. I’m incredibly stoked to rock Vans and rep a company that has such deep roots and done so much to support the people and things that are important. Thanks @vanscanada for keeping it real and making some great shred boots! And Josh likes them too.

Knut had a baby! His world might turn upside down, but luckily he knows how to handle it. This was the coldest shoot ever, at big sky Montana in 2006. Despite the cold, the hospitality was amazing and we had a great time.

Lukas Huffman traversing the bullseye in the #whistler #backcountry back in 2003. Decent gap that we only hit once.

On Thursday I flew to Victoria to watch a band I have been evangelical about for over 30 years. In 1986 I saw them play a show at Expo 86, an infamous show that went down in history. Soon after that show they split up and I never thought I’d ever get a chance to see them again. Slow is back. The old songs are more powerful than ever and there are new songs that pick right up where they left off. Tonight I will go see them again in my home town with friends who have been holding a torch as long as I have, and some who are new to them. Garry would have loved it. I was feeling him on Thursday in Victoria. #demolitionrock #vancouver @pendygram @kimduff_604 @45vinylritchie

On my way to see Kearns today, learning about a new project he’s cooking up. Anyone who knows him knows that it’s going to have a big impact. This is him in 1995, locking into a sweet little line at Mountain Heli Sports. Golden days man. Absolutely amazing.

Here’s Dionne in 2000 on a popper over a cliff in the #whistler #backcountry. Not positive but this might be the jump that claimed his acl! I remember he nailed the wildcat on it first though...

I went through a period where I would shoot for the spread pretty often. This is Darren Cingel launching a stalefish into the great unknown in the Tricounie zone in 1999. .
