Kootenay Street Skiing

David Mossop, film maker, and JP Auclair, freestyle skiier, teamed up to make a swell movie of street skiing in Trail, Rossland, and Nelson. Four minute clip may be viewed here.

I really like the fact that it’s a gray day of thawing dirty snow. It’s easy to find pretty pictures of Nelson (rent the Roxanne DVD to see the place during a beautiful summer). But these gritty little towns have a particular charm year around.
