Karakoram Dreamlines video contest – Chris Shook

For five years Chris Shook gazed at Ymir Peak outside of Whitewater Ski Resort in British Columbia. Standing at a formidable 2400m, it is one of the highest, most challenging ascents in the area. So Chris skinned up and made the climb for the Karakoram Dreamlines Video Contest, bagging a third place prize for achieving his dream line. Congrats Chris!

From Karakoram:

It’s time to announce the winners of the Karakoram Dreamlines Video contest. We had a lot of good videos submitted. The top ten peer voted participants will receive a Karakoram t-shirt. We are announcing third place today.

Third Place in the Karakoram Dreamlines contest goes to Chris Shook for his video about splitboarding Ymir Peak in Whitewater, BC. Chris has been looking at Ymir Peak for 5 years and finally ripped it on his splitboard. There are so many lines like this that sit above your local resort just waiting to be ridden. Chris’s video about Ymir Peak captures the essence of backyard splitboarding. Thanks for telling your story Chris!

We will announce more winners next week!

About Dreamlines:
This year Karakoram Splitboard Bindings kicked off a one of a kind unique Instagram and video contest – KARAKORAM DREAMLINES. To give our fans and users the chance to showcase your Dreamline – show and tell to the world.

The event was a peer voted process with the finalist being selected and voted by the Karakoram staff. The riding was important, but was not necessarily about the gnarliest line or a month long expedition; it’s more about the story, the connection to the line and the mountains, and the drive to make it a reality.

The overall video winner will become an ambassador for Karakoram for one year and will be outfitted from head to toe with gear from Karakoram and our partners! Both Second and third place will get killer prize packs as well.
