After work I got out for a quick ride around my nieghbourhood. Here is a short vid I shot along the way. Enjoy!
My bro Andrew Maitland and I headed up to local mountain Mount Seymour for our first tour on the splitboards for the season. As we reached the top I set my eyes on this line and was supported by my brother to go get it. The sun was out, snow pack was stable & I was feeling it. A great start to what is going to be an unbelievable year. Enjoy!
