Canadian Adventure: 140 Kilometres of Canoe-Access Snowboarding

Four B.C. snowboarders follow the Columbia River in search of backcountry lines to ride

Without a Paddle is a 40-minute canoe film about snowboarding, that blends a 140 kilometres winter paddle from the foot of the Mica Dam in central B.C. to the top of the Revelstoke Dam with the history of the upper Columbia River.

Four intrepid snowboarders seek to retrace a portion of David Thompson’s footsteps down the Columbia River, in the middle of January, during one of the coldest snaps in recorded history in Revelstoke.

“Surreal frozen landscapes, epic paddling, deep powder riding and a lot of pain.”
