Weston Deutschlander and Shaun Raskin are a couple of fun loving tele hippies that have started to produce a web series called Life Unbound to chronicle their adventures on snow. The Strike is episode #2 of the series and follows their trip to Silverton in search of snow. The editing and videography is really strong for a team of two that don’t even have properly functioning bindings. The skiing starts at the 1:00 mark and gets to be good pow at the 3:00 mark.
With the snow nearly nonexistent in Utah we took matters into our own hands and rolled the dice. While Silverton had more snow we had no idea what we were actually going to be in for. With zero support except our sleds and each other we headed to 12,000ft and set up operations. We got lucky when a storm rolled in blanketing the mountains and leaving us unsure as to whether we would be able to make it out due to slides. Here is our story.
