    Posted: Aug/29/2011 at 2:23pm
Hey everyone over the past 6 months I have been followed around by a documentary crew to film most of my adventures. I haven't posted anything recently on the internet so I though I would post it up.

Man I have had some wild adventures recently.



Here is a older post with a bit of background of what I am about!
The Past Two Years of my Life

This was all filmed with portable HD cameras Helmet cameras and not so portable HD cameras.

Last year I found myself on multiple different splitboards trying to see which ones I liked and which ones I didn't.

Great stuff Mr. Miller, saw a great shot of you in the Backcountry mag gear guide.  Have you ridden the new Rome spiltter (whiteroom)?  If so whaddaythink?  Is it "legit"?
That vid has been on my list for a while, BTW

watching that video I was holding my breath and your talk about the near fall was a scary but very real moment.  I've followed your posts and they're amazing.  please let us know when this film comes out, if there are viewing events, etc.  I'm sure there is a large number of us that would love to come out and see it, get it, etc.

Looks like you had a successful season, here is to hoping next season shows you favor as well!

looking forward to it.  Hope it makes it through on a film festival.  Just wondering if you are sponsored at all or did you buy everything that you have?

I like the box of top ramen shot!
Did you google it?

Looks sweet, but:

"I am a skier first, mountaineer second..."

"I've been a ski bum for the past 10 years..."

To quote Keyshawn Johnson: "C'mon, man!"

When you are Splitboarding you are in Ski mode 90% of the time. Or as I like to joke I am a professional cross country skier!
