Spearhead: Pushing the Boundaries of BC's Backcountry

Spearhead: Pushing the Boundaries of BC's Backcountry is a short film by Arc'teryx that documents the increase in backcountry traffic to the Spearhead Range in British Columbia. 

The Spearhead Range sits adjacent to Whistler Blackcomb resort. It's home to some wild and spectacular terrain that more often than not holds great snow. In recent years the number of backcountry ski and snowboard visitors to the range has increased exponentially. With the opening of the new Kees and Claire hut this is set to continue. 

The film explores the mountains of the Spearhead Range and includes some really nice footage of some of the awesome lines found there.
