My name is Brandon Kelly and I live in Whistler BC. I grew up in Kamloops BC skiing at Sun Peaks and always dreamed about living in Whistler and have now been here for 6 years. I like to focus on being a well rounded skier, but backcountry is for sure my main thing, pow is by far the best thing in the world, and we get lots of it here in Whis. I have been snowmobiling for the past 4 years now, rooping pow and getting fresh turns everyday with all my good buddies. It started out as a way to get up and film skiing, and still is the main reason that I have my sled, now I'm hooked for life, which is fine with me.
I had a really good season filming lots with Poorboyz for the new film "revolver". We have such a sick crew out here that has been skiing and sledding together, learning the backcountry and progressing each other over the past 5 years. The early season here in Whistler was one of the best early seasons they have had in a long time, we took full advantage and got some filming done with PBP and photographer Dan Carr. Then I got a chance to check out Fernie and go catskiing with the Ride Guide crew at Island lake lodge, those trips are always fun for hounding some powder. With the Olympics taking over our home, the crew packed up and went on a three week film trip to Revelstoke BC, a bc cabin in the Pemberton backcountry, and to finish thing off we spent a few days at Mt. Baker. The trip was a success and we got a bunch of bangers for the new vid. Whistler has had so much snow up in the high alpine this season, making for an above average March and April. We took full advantage of having so much snow have been building booters, skiing pillows and sending it all spring. Now that the PBP parkshoots are underway I am doing some skiing, and some hanging out as the season winds down.
Summer is nearing and I can't believe another season has almost gone by. I have been working construction full time the past 5 years in the summer and will doing that again this summer, I wouldn't say that it's one of my favorite things to do but, gotta do what you gotta do to be able to ski and live the dream all winter right, and I need to get a new snowmobile for next season. I can't wait till construction is over and the pow is billowing over my head again.
