Splitboarding with the Provo Brothers – Retallack, BC

Ian and Neil Provo are some Splitboard crazies!  They put a ton of time on and in the snow. Check out this new movie Retallack documenting their 2 month trip to British Columbia.  If you don’t watch the entire movie, jump to about 5:25 of the video for some toe tingling deep POV pow turns!  Great Movie, Start Cutting your boards in half now, in preparation for the upcoming season.

The Provo Bros – mining powder at Retallack, British Columbia from The Provo Bros on Vimeo.

“During the winter of 2011, my brother Neil and I were presented with a once in a lifetime opportunity. We were to spend two months embedded in the heart of the Kootenays at the legendary Retallack Lodge. The mission was to shred pow with our good friend Tanner, who was on his comeback, and to help film Retallack:The Movie for Inspired Media Concepts. I took the role of the dedicated time lapse junkie, while Neil was a true on slope camera master. This video is a showcase of our skills behind the camera, as well as a few of our favorite long lens shots from Retallack:The Movie. Time lapses make way for deep powder mining, and a trip into the heart of the “silvery slocan” to see how silver miners conquered the mountains a century ago. Mining for powder in the Selkirk mountains is serious business, and we found out just how serious it can get. We hope you enjoy our short film, and perhaps absorb just a sliver of the energy that is Retallack Lodge in beautiful British Columbia.” ian provo
