Remember that night skiing advert that came out in 2014, Afterglow? It features pro skiers Daron Rahlves and Chris Benchetler carving through fresh powder aided by a sequence of 4000-watt spotlights and ski-suits covered in 7000 LEDs, and has clocked up well over five million views since.
Pulling the stunt off was a serious feat of creative perseverance: having located the ideal backcountry ridge on Google Earth, the crew needed several planes, helicopters and sleds to haul 9000 pounds of equipment into the untouched Alaskan wilderness. Over the following days and weeks, in which they also filmed in British Columbia, the months of planning and preparation came together.
The artistic event was a one-off; the same video is still doing the rounds among skiing enthusiasts to this very day. However, this is set to change.
PELORUS is incredibly excited to be able to offer clients the world-exclusive opportunity to follow in the tracks of Rahlves and Benchetler. Taking place in British Columbia, the sessions will be led by premier ski guides to ensure safety and quality, and the very same professional film crew will be on-hand to produce a fully-edited film of the experience.
Imagine having an entire valley to yourself, looking down a pristine, white canvas sprayed with pinks and yellows, knowing that you are about to do something that only a handful of others have ever experienced.
To ensure you get the most of your time in British Columbia, we will pack the surrounding days with heli-skiing and cat-skiing, giving you plenty of time to appreciate the quality of sport available in this remote and stunning corner of the world. Fear not, you will be given plenty of opportunity to sleep, too.
This really is skiing like you’ve never known it before. We can’t guarantee that your resulting film will get five million views, but we can guarantee you’ll experience something truly extraordinary.
