The Mad Ones: Alaska Powder Descents

If you’re ever in Juneau and need a lift, look up Alaska Powder Descents. Sean Janes has been running the heli-op with a bunch of other Juneau locals since 2007. They’ve got a killer compound, some incredible terrain and coolers full of beer for the day’s end.

The Mad Ones is a a web-based video project by Liam Gallagher. Inspired by the Beat Generation and specifically the writings of Jack Kerouac, The Mad Ones will follow the freaks, all winter long. Web flicks will be released every Monday through May. Some will be action edits, others about odd balls or oddities seen, weird experiences or whatever else happens to happen. Then, next September it’ll all be mashed into a free-for-download movie.

Supported by: K2 Snowboarding, Drink Water and 686.
