What We’re Watching: ‘Prospecting Idaho’

Now in its third season, this week Smith Optics’ releases its first “Prospecting Idaho” video of the year. The setting is a private ski area in Idaho’s backcountry, where Smith has built ramps and features among the trees. Big air, backflips, yurt living, snowmobile access, and many a bro high-fiving while livin’ it up in the exclusive outback retreat is the theme. That’s about as deep as it gets. For anyone jones’n for an early-season dose of snowsports porn, what more do you need?

—We’ll feature occasional “What We’re Watching” posts a few times each month. What’s a great adventure video you’ve seen recently? Link us to your video picks in the comment section below or via Facebook.
