All the skiing in this video was done on the 189cm SCOTT Scrapper 115 ski.

Last season was epic at Squaw Valley, CA & Jackson Hole, WY.

Squaw saw the 2nd most snow they’ve ever recorded (728″). 

Jackson Hole saw the most snow they’ve ever recorded (593″) as well as the deepest snowpack they’ve ever recorded (158″)

I split my season between Squaw Valley CA and Jackson Hole WY in 2016/17 and spent our summer in Bariloche, Argentina.  Bariloche saw double their average snowfall this winter including a stint of 33 powder days in a row.

Miles about to drop into a fun one in Bariloche, Argentina in September 2017.

I skied 216 days in 2016/17 – 108 of them were powder days.

I skied powder days on 4 continents in 2017/18:  North America, South America, Europe, Antarctica.

I’m content, exhausted, and grateful – especially after I battled a knee injury the past two seasons that kept me mostly off snow.

2016/17 was the best winter of my life.  Thanks you, everyone.

  1. Hi MIles,

    I admire your skiing efforts.
    My objective is to ski in every ski resort in the world with more than (approx.) 8 lifts which limit does not apply to “exotic” skiing destinations . I guess I am in the last third of my “mission” now.

Got an opinion? Let us know...
