Spring has arrived in the valleys of the Coast Mountains of B.C.
Skis are being replaced by mountain bikes. But with a little effort, powder still exists up high. Documenting a single day, follow Trevor as he bushwhacks through the coastal rainforest, tours through rotten snow, and ultimately skis perfect powder as the sun begins to set. This film was meant to represent that classic coastal ski day. Doing what most backcountry skiers dream of: adventure and powder.
Director, Darcy Turenne
Darcy Turenne is a filmmaker and director from Vancouver Island, Canada. Known internationally as a professional mountain biker, Darcy started working in television as a presenter for the globally syndicated travel/adventure show “Ride Guide” and has been featured in hundreds of publications worldwide, including Rolling Stone and Men’s Journal.
While completing an MA in Intercultural Communications at Royal Roads University, Darcy purchased a video camera and quickly found her passion for storytelling and visual arts. Her first film,“The Eighth Parallel”, which doubled as her master’s thesis, has been screened at many film festivals around the world and has received a multitude of positive reviews. Since then, Darcy has developed a personal style of filmmaking that combines art film with ethnography, metaphor, and critical analysis.
From commercial work, to music videos, to documentary, to travel pieces (in the past two years Darcy has shot in India, Bolivia, Indonesia, Rwanda, The Republic of Georgia, Turkey, and Qatar…to name a few), Darcy continues to build her portfolio and add to her diverse list of clients.
