Over the last decade, Pemberton, British Columbia, has emerged as a go-to destination for pro skiers from all over the world. Located 30 minutes from Whistler, Pemberton offers sled access to the kind of terrain usually reserved for helicopters. Each winter film crews descend on the area to reap the benefits of expansive terrain that's easily accessed from old mining and logging roads. Teton Gravity Research athletes Sage Cattabriga-Alosa and Ian McIntosh caught one of the rare mid-season bluebird days earlier this winter, sneaking in a few lines during a season that was plagued with bad weather.
"Sage is one of my favorite people to ski with and my backyard here in Pemberton is one of my favorite places to ski, so it was only natural to bring the two together," says McIntosh, who lives in Pemberton. "This year [Sage's] schedule finally worked to make the trip to Pemby happen -- it was truly awesome to see Sage's reaction to the area on our first day out on the sleds. I remember him saying, 'This is basically AK on sleds.'"
