The Chic Chocs of southern Quebec are known for their challenging terrain, deep snow, and committing touring. As our group begins their adventure, this incredible snowscape serves as the backdrop to their nascent bond.
Outdoor Gear Exchange Presents: More Than You Think
In these three short films, we followed a group of women into the backcountry of New England and Canada. Amidst the stark, rugged landscapes of the Chic Chocs, Smugglers' Notch, and Mount Washington, these women—together—dared themselves to create their own adventure.
With tight trees, dramatic features, and steep lines, Smugglers' Notch in Vermont offers some of the best, most technical skiing on the East Coast. Here, the group learns more about themselves as skiers, and of the importance of having a crew to ski with—whenever the mood strikes.
Our last episode sees the group skin up the East Coast’s alpine litmus test, Mount Washington. Though their ability levels are as varied as the mountain’s terrain, the group’s supportive and empowering dynamic means everyone has their own perfect run
