Logline: 
Powder skiing and the lure of cold smoke is an irresistible temptation. It pays to listen to the professionals.
Synopsis/Details: 

'Cold Smoke' is slang for super-low density powder snow (aka 'Duck Feathers') that is effortless to ski and coveted by skiers.

Based on a personal experience from what seems a lifetime ago. I am the character 'Squat' and can picture it like it was yesterday. It was an early season in the Wasatch, November, 1992.

No sh*t, there I was....

Two seasoned ski patrollers take a rookie out for training and to perform avalanche control. The rookie decides to learn about avalanches the hard way.

This could be produced on a shoestring budget with a couple of GoPro cameras, a drone, and the right people. This has Sundance, Banff, and Telluride Film Festivals written all over it!

The Writer: John Staats

I'm a lucky man. Perhaps it's because I'm not afraid of change, or maybe because of the choices I've made. Either way, I've always been fortunate. I've been able to travel, meet a lot of awesome people, and have had quite a few unique experiences along the way. I like to draft experience into every story. Next up, breathe life back into the Spirit of the West...because we all know it needs reviving. I'm very proud of the work posted here and the stories you're about to read. If you like what you read, feel free to give it some love and tic the the heart icon. Been around... Seen some things... Yep, a helluva story teller. No sh*t, there I was.... Go to bio
