When You’re Far From Home

After two days of relentless snowfall, we awoke to clear skies over the Cerro Catedral Mountain Range in Bariloche, Argentina. The crew consisted of guide Andrew Berns, Cam FitzPatrick, Chase Josey, Chris Poe, Galen Knowles, my brothers Jack Hessler and Brolin Mawejje, and me. Our mission in South America was to capture the highest level of snowboarding possible for our upcoming documentary Far From Home.
