 Mountain Hardwear athletes Michelle Parker and James Heim will continue to be featured in MSP’s annual ski films. This winter, Parker and Heim have traveled with film crews to Japan in search of the never-ending powder and British Columbia where they skied at one of Canada’s first backcountry resorts, Golden Alpine Holidays. Currently, Parker and Heim are in Haines, Alaska seeking big lines and steep terrain.

“Working with MSP Films over the past 9 years has been an amazing experience,” said Parker. “I have travelled all over the world in search of great skiing and new adventures. I’m excited about the continued partnership. I can't wait to start planning the next great adventure!”

Heim added, "Mountain Hardwear’s renewed partnership with MSP for the next few years shows their commitment to the core of the skiing community. It's been an incredible few years already working with both companies and to get to continue that relationship is really exciting. It’s an opportunity to showcase our love for skiing and hopefully inspire others to get outside and enjoy the mountains. I feel very lucky to work with these two amazing companies.”

Snowsports Team Members Noah Howell, Jenn Berg and Andrew McLean have spent the 2014-15 season shooting in Utah’s Wasatch Mountains, exploring deeper and deeper stashes via link-ups, traverses and backcountry heli trips.
