Video: Steelhead and Spines


Written by: Phil Monahan

Steelhead and Spines- The Provo Bros from The Provo Bros on Vimeo.

Back in February, we told you about the “Steelhead & Spines” project by brothers Ian and Neil Provo, who embarked on a combined steelheading/skiing trip from their home in Park City, Utah, to the capital of “spine riding,” Haines, Alaska. We followed it up with some great photography and Ian’s trip report in June.

Finally, the video is here, and it’s awesome. Be warned: there’s a lot more skiing here than steelheading. You’ll understand why when you see the scale of the expedition necessary to make the unbelievable descents they pull off. If you want to skip the skiing, just let the whole video load and skip to the 15:00 mark.
