While Big White is a winter wonderland right now covered in champagne powder, a Kelowna cinematographer is reminding us of fun had on the hill before the snow began to fall.

Harrison Mendel’s new video just launched on redbull.com and features some of the world’s best riders shredding the new “mega course” at Big White Ski Resort.

In the video above you can catch some of the best hit the trail including, pro riders Bas van Steenbergen, Brett Rheeder, Carson Storch, Ryan “R-Dogg” Howard, Mitch Ropelato, Thomas Vanderham and Tom van Steenbergen.

“This course is something that I’ve always wanted to ride or build,” Rhythm course creator Bas van Steenbergen told RedBull.

“Having these super technical rhythm sections, big jumps and sick turns all in one trail was a dream come true for me.”

The Rhythm track will become an official trail when it opens to the public in the Spring.

“There is something that is so cool about this project, usually we have to tear things down or keep them a secret, so it’s super cool to see that people will be able to go ride this trail! It’ll be toned down a little bit, but the general flow and options of gaps will stay the same,” explained Bas van Steenbergen.

As for Mendel, he specializes sport action videos available on his website here.
