Ski The North - Rob Heule

“Ski The North” – Rob Heule & Co. discuss their latest film.


FROM SBC SKIER / TRAVIS PERSAUD:


“Mack Jones, Rob Heule, and filmmaker Graeme Meiklejohn got back on the bus this year. Apparently they didn’t get enough of RV life after driving from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean last year for the making of Meanwhile in Canada. After Mother Nature threw the team a knuckleball, the boys had to scrap their original plans for the winter and booked some quality time with Harvey the RV 2.0 via Canada Dreams “Going South” package to get the wheels rolling on Ski the North. Like last year, the project is based around urban, but will feature some resort riding. For Intersection, they made a separate cut of the project with the full project being released in its entirety after [World Ski & Snowboard Festival].”

Rob Heule, Ski The North

Your original plan was to go to the Kootenays to film this project? How did that come about?
Rob: There’s so much potential there. Both Nelson and Trail are built on hills.
Mack: The JP Segment [in Sherpas Cinema’s All I Can].
Rob: Yeah, definitely the JP segment comes to mind when you think of that area. I think it’s a bit of an unexplored area that still has a lot of potential, and there’s usually snow. Just with the warm winter, it was obviously not feasible.

How did Whitehorse become the contingency plan?
Mack: It was kind of a joke at first—like, “Let’s go straight north because no one else has snow.” And then Nelson actually didn’t have snow. We were thinking about going to Alaska, but we wanted to keep on with our Canadian theme.
Rob: It was such a last minute decision.
Mack: We were going to leave Vancouver for Nelson on the second [of February]. And then we were gone in an RV by the fifth.
Rob: It was within two or three days that we organized the same RV trip that we put three or four months of planning into last year.
Mack: We told ourselves that we weren’t going to do an RV trip this year, then we were like, “We have to.”

“A Skier of Circumstance” – Freeskier profiles Karl Fostvedt

“Stylish, confident, talented. Those are all qualities that make the world of ski media take notice. Thoughtful, humble, independent. These virtues don’t always guarantee attention. In my mind though, Karl is next in a line of skiers who combine both sets of traits, indelible names in our sport including Eric Pollard, Michelle Parker, Dash Longe, Pep Fujas, Mike Hornbeck, Adam Delorme and more, all who have made their names not by scoring higher but rather by playing an entirely different game.” – Nate Abbott

“Style is the answer to everything.
A fresh way to approach a dull or dangerous thing
To do a dull thing with style is preferable to doing a dangerous thing without it
To do a dangerous thing with style is what I call art

Bullfighting can be an art
Boxing can be an art
Loving can be an art
Opening a can of sardines can be an art

Not many have style
Not many can keep style
I have seen dogs with more style than men,
although not many dogs have style.
Cats have it with abundance.

When Hemingway put his brains to the wall with a shotgun,
that was style.
Or sometimes people give you style
Joan of Arc had style
John the Baptist
Jesus
Socrates
Caesar
García Lorca.

I have met men in jail with style.
I have met more men in jail with style than men out of jail.
Style is the difference, a way of doing, a way of being done.
Six herons standing quietly in a pool of water,
or you, naked, walking out of the bathroom without seeing me.” – Charles Bukowski

Winter Trash is Back!

Special thx to the whole Stadler Family for the amazing hospitality and good vibes!
We´ll definitely return!

Enjoy!
