As we edit up this past weekends blower powder adventures from Stevens Pass and Crystal Mountain, I wanted to share this fantastic segment from this year’s WME film. The segment takes place (mostly) in Valdez Alaska and features Amie Engerbrets, Lexi DuPont, and McKenna Peterson. Below is what WME had to say about this sweet powder slashin’ edit.
Impressive landscapes of immaculate terrain make up the mountains of Valdez, Alaska. Athletes Amie Engerbretson, McKenna Peterson and Lexi duPont are willing to admit the high level of intimidation these jagged peaks can generate. Standing at the top, as Engerbretson puts it, “can be a mixed bag of emotions.” Hailing from ski towns like Tahoe and Sun Valley, these three perceive skiing this territory not only as an ambitious feat, but also as one of legacy and curiosity. With parents who are local skiing celebrities, fishermen and adventure filmmakers, these girls have been motivated to ski Alaska’s mountains their entire lives. Traveling via helicopter and RV across the Valdez region, they are here to find out what the hype around AK is all about. Turning down massive spines and leaving their marks on untouched, snow-packed faces, the ladies discover that skiing in Alaska is not just where dreams come true, “it’s where dreams are lived.”
