Weekend Stoker: Watch Ski Guide Mike Barney’s Skills

Few people spend more days on snow than Mike Barney. He’s been a ski guide for the last 17 years and spends on average nine months every 365 days taking clients into the mountains.

He’s amassed a level of knowledge in the mountains that’s unparalleled, which is why he’s continually sought after by the best guiding outfits around the world.

From Iceland to Chile, Alaska to Silverton, Barney can be found digging pits, shredding lines, and riding shotgun in the heli while guiding clients to the goods. We followed Barney for a season, documenting his quest for the endless winter, and his journey to become the ultimate ski guide. For more on Barney visit here.
