Just after the 2016 SIA Snow Show in Denver, Colorado was hit by a big-ass winter storm that dumped a fantastic amount of powder. In this video, Brandon is on the back side of Arapahoe Basin Ski Area in the Montezuma Bowl. While some of the exposed faces were fairly hard packed, the glades held powder that was pillowy soft and plentiful for days. Also in this clip, Brandon learns the hard way that when you’re filming something for the Gearist audience, it’s best to look where you’re going instead of at the screen of your phone.
