Julian Carr Bags His First Descent

Julian's Juicebox

Words by Julian Carr Got my first, 1st descent of my life. At the newest tenure heli operation in British Columbia, Kingfisher Heliskiing, on a heli-assit touring assignment with Backcountry Magazine, we stayed in a cabin in the backwoods you had to snowmobile to, we hopped in the heli each morning at a little farm off the dirt road middle of nowhere Canada, near Cherryville, BC, next thing you know our guide is pointing out a row of these chutes that had never been skied. I couldn't believe my eyes. I was second down a first descent with Brody Leven in Iceland two years ago, but he went first, I finally got one I can call my own. Named it "Juicebox", after I skied it, 2500 total vert to the valley floor, I was all by myself in the massive mountains, total silence, total contentness, I grabbed my juicebox from my pack and just stared for a good 20 minutes before a voice came over the radio to break the silence.. "julian, what are you going to name it?". #juicebox -  Julian Carr
