Been a while I last logged in but I thought I'd give you a heads up on a project I've been involved with. A bit different to most of the content here but with a most of the crew coming from a park background and some being still predominantly park riders I thought you'd be interested.
With Jack Mullner of Puzzle Media on board for the filming and Gregor McLellan the friendly highlander taking pics we spent three weeks in Scotland in May this year hiking, skiing and filming on the remaining snow (surprisingly a huge amount). Classic Scottish conditions made for a definite lack of spring conditions with snow falling on the peaks all the way through the three weeks.
This week we will be posting one picture of the trip each day with the trailer dropping Friday!
To kick things off here is Joe Simpson feeling small beneath the massive cornices guarding the slopes of Braeriach deep in the Cairngorm National Park
So stay tuned on here and if you want to find out more check out;
The trailer will drop in 3 hours, I'll be sure to get the link up here when it does.
Here is the last picture upload for a little while. Don't worry though we still have some bangers to show you as winter draws closer.
This is Joe, Aaron, Todd and Amy on the way out of Garbh Corrie. The moody sky reflected the choice to leave after watching cornices collapse and slides release. Having spent the night camped outside the refuge (with a Todd and Jack inside after their tent get destroyed by the wind!) we had one single run each before the 15km retreat back to Aviemore. Oh the Cairngorms!

In search of spring lines, stoke and scotch, the Puzzle Media crew, along with British Freeride founders and friends, headed north to the Scottish Highlands in May this year. Our team had twenty days to plan and execute an exploration of the Scottish backcountry, capturing the beauty of the Highlands along the way. We met some crazy characters, contended with classic Scottish storms and lugged our body weight in gear to some of Scotland?s loftiest summits. We were rewarded with some exceptional conditions and terrain as good as any you would find in Alpine regions. LATE is the story of our end of season ski and snowboard escapade in Scotland, stay tuned for the release of the full movie coming soon!
