Anna Segal and Brita Sigourney take a break from competitions and head to Sun Valley, Idaho for some backcountry laps with Lexi duPont, Mike Hattrup, Reggie Crist, Collin Collins and Andy Mahre in the latest Missfits Episode.
Conditions were variable – even though they were ripping pow every day, they still managed to find some ICE here and there…

Pep & Andy jibbing some japanese pow from the latest En Route episode.
With Andy’s help, Mike Hattrup shows us how to set a T Trench Anchor to stay safe and secure when performing tasks such as cutting a cornice. Regardless of its nickname, ‘Deadman anchor’, this technique can actually save your life! Not quite sure how it got that name…

Shortly after getting home from Japan, I loaded up my car and drove out to Missoula, Montana, where I met up with Lynsey Dyer and the Warren Miller film tour crew. We skied at Snowbowl, and then attended “Like There’s No Tomorrow” premiere. It hadn’t snowed much before our arrival, but there was enough duff to get a decent shot. Lynsey had a good eye, and took the photo of me.
The next day we headed up to Whitefish and watched the Winter Carnival Parade. After the parade we judged the Black Star Beer Barter. The contestants of the barter had to convince the judges why they deserved 52 cases of Black Star Beer. The winner donated two VW buses to the brewery and went home with 52 cases.
The next day we skied at Whitefish Mountain Resort. The groomers were perfect, and the sun was shining bright. Here is a short video of skiing the cord.
After Montana I went back home and linked up with Tom Winter. We tried to shoot some photos, but ultimately linked up with a few of my cousins to ski around. The weather wasn’t ideal for shooting, but it was fun skiing. We hiked out into the bowls and it was socked in. Once we got to where we wanted to ski, it went blue for a few minutes. It was a nice change in pace after a few days of rain, light snow, and wind.
Now, I am in Sun Valley, ID filming with some K2 athletes. Lexi Dupont, Brita Sigourney, Anna Segal, Collin Collins, Mike Hattrup, Zach and Reggie Crist. It has been a very fun trip so far, and I will be here until about the 25th. We have been ski touring daily.
Ranging from a traverse from the ski area to a cabin 6 miles up the road from the ski area, to lapping small fun playful zones, to hitting jumps. It’s been a great trip so far and I look forward to the following week. Again, bring the snow.
