Video: Andrew McNab’s Quiver series showcases facets of ski touring

Revelstoke ski mountaineer Andrew McNab has released the first instalment of Quiver, a three-part video project that highlights three sides of ski touring.

Revelstoke ski mountaineer Andrew McNab is featured in the recently released first instalment of Quiver, a three-part video project that highlights three sides of ski touring.
The Revelstoke native skier, racer, photographer and videographer said the project is “about the diversity of touring.”
Part one (above) focuses on the powder side of ski touring in the Revelstoke area. The next two parts are scheduled for release in February and March. Part two will focus on ski mountaineering racing and part three on ski mountaineering adventures.
The title ‘Quiver’ is a reference to the different skis.
“I wanted to put a different light to it,” McNab explained of his exploration of the different ski disciplines. Powder skiing lends itself to artistic expression, ski mo racing to competition, while multi-day touring brings the thrill of adventure.
“To me, all three play together and balance each,” McNab said.
McNab has been on skis in the Revelstoke area since he was two, and made his first tracks touring on cross country skis when he was about six. He is an accomplished ski mountaineering racer. Quiver was directed by Kevin Landry, Taylor Loughran and Andrew McNab.
The project was created with help from sponsors Atomic Skis, and supporters MEC and Ergogenics Nutrition.
