This ski and snowboard documentary has been in the works for over a year and filmed in a winter with one of the largest recorded snow falls of our time.

Vshaw Productions has delved into local culture, exposed some great local athletes and found some of the most outstanding terrain from the Rocky Mountains to the snow infested peaks of the Monashees.

The Powder Highway runs 45 minutes and includes interviews with locals that have been around long enough to remember riding wooden skis.  Mike Hopkins, Chris Rubens, Mark Carter, Joey Vosburgh, Christina Lustenberger, Peter Velisek, Scott Newsome and other locals show us how to ride the mountains they call home.

Producer Vance Shaw is no stranger to the industry and has the skills to create a captivating documentary in some of the most difficult winter conditions these mountains have to offer.

This is Shaw’s second ski documentary and his most creative work to date.
