ORIGINS—The Story Behind the World’s First Catskiing Operation


Who knows how they do that cool part at the beginning with all the vintage photos, but this is one unique promo vid. Shot last season at the world’s first true catskiing lodge, Selkirk Wilderness Skiing, ORIGINS pays homage to the vision of the company’s founders, Allan and Branda Drury, as well as the thousands and thousands of memories shared amongst skiers from all over the world who’ve come to this little chunk of BC paradise to ski legendary snow.

This short film is a collaboration between award winning film company Sherpas Cinema and Selkirk Wilderness Skiing, the world’s first snowcat operation. Written and directed by Sherpas Cinema and featuring athletes Izzy Lynch, Johnny Collinson, Joey Vosburgh and Austin Ross alongside guests and guides, the film highlights SWS’s amazing terrain and deep powder. Shot during the 2011/2012 season it also includes snippets of historical footage that help to convey the enduring culture of SWS.
