Ralph Backstrom charges in 2012 GoPro Valdez, AK footage

The North Face team rider Ralph Backstrom teamed up with Teton Gravity Research last winter, and spent two months shooting film (and guns) in Valdez, Alaska. If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to shred those lines like a pro, this might give you an idea. Shot exclusively with a GoPro Hero 2, these first-person perspective shots convincingly display Backstrom’s ability to charge big lines with the best of them.
