Video: Flat Out Shredding on Squamish Trails in 'Storm Warning'

Mar 1, 2021

Words: Commencal

A bad day on the bike is better than a good day at work could be the mantra of the Sea to Sky… And the rest of the world.

“During the long winters in Whistler with no way out, we waited for a good weather window and headed to Squamish to get after some riding during a warm spell. But as usual, the storm patterns changed, snow started falling, the parking lots cleared, and we had the snow covered trails all to ourselves.”
-Quinn Hanley

Storm Warning showcases the Sea to Sky’s variable riding conditions. It’s not uncommon to have spring like conditions one day to full blown winter the next. Just remember that there’s no such thing as bad weather, just poor clothingchoice.

Rider: Quinn Hanley

 @juanny: The sound is obviously influenced by the Pixies and Sonic Youth. Its not exactly a strange style or anything. Not sure what is so offensive about it??

 This video is a great example of how not to make friends with a trail builder. Just look at the ruts in the soft ground on that snowy trail.

Start your own drone video company and do things right, then.
