Matt MacCallum Edit

Whitewater’s season has officially came to an end, spring is in the air here in nelson, it’s a love hate time for many of us skiers. I’m personally looking forward to school wrapping up in two weeks, moving to a new area and having much more free time to work on hoodies. Also the fact that Sunshine has a much longer spring season and I may get a few more days on snow! (slightly torn about that however, as I am not a fan of what happened recently to so many of their old management.)

Also possibly going to Sunshine later this spring is Matt MacCallum, and even though his season is still not over he decided to put together a little 2010/2011 edit to enjoy the memories. Now here it is for your enjoyment.

Holiday Activities

Over the christmas break Matt MacCallum and I traveled to the Island for a few days at Mount Washington where we met up with Pat B and Martin E. We ran into some crazy amounts of powder and one day of sun, if I recall correctly it went something like this… 32 cm overnight, 32 cm overnight, 35 cm overnight, 60 cm overnight, 15 cm overnight… and finally some sun for our last day. After a good time on the island we headed to Alberta and hit up Canada Olympic Park for a few days, and one very unbearably cold day at Lake Louise.

I have for your visual stimulation, a short clip of Pat’s edges being mad at him, and some pictures from a small powder booter and a jump at COP.

Pat has some mad style!

Matt decided he didn’t want to show his face

Logan also got a new shot recently, wearing one of his PJS hoodies to top it off! (Matt is also wearing his hoodie in the pictures above, but its hidden under his jacket).

Logan rocking his hoodie for some urban.

That is all for now. Hope everyone is enjoying the season!

New friends, new pictures, fun stuff.

PJS kinda knows some random people from random places around North America. Take this goof for instance, Zachary Halverson, this kids from some funky place called Alaska and well… he’s kinda spiffy on a pair of skis. Lucky for me, he’s also a member of the Purplejumpsuit team. Zach is 16 and rips the pow pow nicely, I met him at the Canadian freeskiing open at Red Mountain in January and more recently he just finished up another competition at Crested Butte.  This time he snagged an impressive 6th, good job Zach!

Here are some pictures of the fine young fella.

Skiing…

Blue bird!

Being rad

And chillin…

What a punk

Goofin

So that’s Zach, and we are stoked to have the kid on the team! Hopefully some updates from Alaska will be up in the very near future.

Here on the island we’ve been getting some crazy sun, Martin and Pat have both been getting some decent goggle tans started after we’ve been in the fog/clouds for what seems like forever! Sadly got no pictures from the blue bird days here, but we do have some recent shots from cloudy days.

derp

Martin went tree climbing

Pat’s octo!

I don’t have any pictures of Matt’s recent shenanigans, but I have been told the lucky bugger is getting tons of freshies at the moment, after a ton of sun! He’s kinda stoked, and im kinda jealous. Hopefully he’ll snag some pow shots so we can be even more jealous.

I’ve got to get back to finishing up a tuque, so goodnight.
