SilverStar Rock Stars

SilverStar Bike Park rules. No ifs ands or buts. As the preferred bike park for Kootenay and westward-based riders, this year’s Opening Day weekend was nothing short of magical. Packs of Revelstoke, Nelson and Calgary riders could be seen tearing up beautifully buffed rides like Rock Star, Super Star, World Cup and the daringly airborne, Pipe Dream. Rock Star alone has 83 berms and over 50 jumps, all sculpted to perfection by a very dedicated and passionate trail crew. With 1,600 feet of vertical, a swift and comfortable six-pack high speed quad, wicked dirt, and tons of different trails for all types of rider, it is, unequivocally, the best bike park in interior BC, and one of the top destinations in all of Canada. Go HERE to check out more info, and keep an eye out for a KMC article next summer. More importantly, get yourself to Vernon for a mountain bike experience you won’t soon forget. Yes, your hands will ache, and your body will be blown, but your mind will never be the same.


Toy Story 3 – The Kootenay Connection

What do Toy Story 3, the iPad, and KMC contributing photographer and part-time kootenay resident Bryce Duffy all have in common? They all came together in the June issue of Wired Magazine, the publication’s first issue to be release for use with the iPad. In this issue Bryce photographed the people behind the creation of the Toy Story empire, read more about it HERE.


The Sherpas do Fresh Fields

The Rocky Mountain Sherpas, makers of The Fine Line, are working on a big winter project due out in a year or so. Super talented filmmakers who roam from bases in Nelson and Squamish, here’s a look at their trip to Fresh Fields glacier in the Rockies. Sweet stuff.


Life Cycles – Getting There

Sure, I might be biased, seeing as I’m helping the guys at Stance Films with their narration script and story direction. But the more I see, the more I’m blown away. Ryan Gibb and Derek Frankowski and their crew of super talented filmmakers (all based in Rossland, BC), are just a few short months away from releasing their much anticipated mountain bike epic, Life Cycles. Much more than just a cycling film, this is the beautiful story of what it means to ride a bike. Check out this very cool behind the scenes video, and if you get a chance, go HERE to read their blog post about working with the likes of me.
