DYLAN SIGGERS | 2015
The prince of POV edits, Dylan Siggers, drops his 2015 season edit! The Fernie, BC local has a pretty good season hitting up spots throughout British Columbia (and VERMONT!) and the culmination, as shown above, is definitely worth a watch! Sit back & enjoy!
– Find out more about the Supernatural –
Our Canadian MC Dylan Siggers made his way to land of maple syrup, Vermont, for Level 1’s SuperunknownXII which was held at Carinthia, Mount Snow’s all-mountain terrain park. For those of you who don’t know what Level 1’s Superunknown is … well 1) get out from underneath that rock and 2) check it out HERE!
TL;DR? Hear it from the source:
2 years deep- the biggest, best, and most long-standing video talent search in skiing is back and better than ever!
The original video talent search contest and still the biggest and best! Started back in 2004 as a way to give talented skiers a chance to gain exposure, sponsorship, and a shot at filming with Level 1, Superunknown set out to provide an alternate route to exposure outside of the traditional competition scene.
Over a decade later the players have changed but the game is still the same- each year Level 1 receives nearly one hundred entries from around the globe from the most skilled and talented amateurs hoping to take the coveted title. – Level 1
…but back to Dylan Siggers! Dylan killed it, on one foot & two!
Dylan does Superunknown | TWO FOOT Edition!
In the day and a half before my heel went soft on me I managed to get a few clips with the talented staff at Level 1. Heres the entirety of my shots before I became a mono skier forever!
We’ve got a couple rad dudes looking to get your vote in order to secure a spot at the World Heli Challenge. Take a look at the entries below and then head over and give ’em a vote!
Team Vacation / VOTE HERE
All Us In Winterland – Lucidity / VOTE HERE
Team Australia / VOTE HERE
About the Call Up from the World Heli Challenge:
Fourteen teams are in the chase for just two sought-after slots in the new format World Heli Challenge competition and a ‘money-can’t-buy’ ticket to 9 days of adventure including two heli-accessed backcountry competition days in the mountains around Aoraki Mt Cook and Lake Ohau in New Zealand.
Big mountain freeriding skiers and boarders from Australia, New Zealand and around the globe answered the World Heli Challenge “Call Up” sending in their “Big Adventures/Big Rewards” videos to win entry into this year’s new-look event.
One team will be chosen by a “People’s Choice” online vote earning the chance to take home the $10,000 first prize purse. The World Heli Challenge judging panel will pick the opposing team to take them on in the new head-to-head format.
“We have been blown away by the quality and quantity of entries for this first ever “Call Up”. The edits are awesome and our judges are going to have a tough time narrowing the field” said event founder and director Tony “Harro” Harrington.
“It was a big step to change up the format for the competition moving it to a team dynamic and opening up the entry online with the “Call Up” but it’s paid off and I’m stoked to see the athletes and filmers have embraced it. The entries are fun, celebrate the talents of the athletes and filmers and are super creative – it’s what the event is all about.”
Some World Heli Challenge veterans are entering to defend their titles, Sam Smoothy and Fraser McDougall have buddied up and three-time champion Will Jackways and skier Charlie Lyons with Riley Bathurst filming are in the mix also. Australian duo Watkin McLennan (Mt Buller) and Charlie Timmins (Perisher) have thrown down the gauntlet forming “Team Australia” with Joey Corcoran behind the camera. Snowboarders Jake Koia and Ryan Teine are in the hunt as are NZ clubfielders Cam McDermid and Tom Brownlee amongst others.
All “Call Up” video entries will be posted on Friday 22 August and voting will kick off here on the site at approx. 4pm NZ time/6pm AEST. Voting will close at the same time on Friday 29 August when the final votes will be tallied to determine the “People’s Choice” team to go through to the World Heli Challenge.
“The teams are frothing and stirring up their supporters to vote for them so they get to Mt Cook and have a crack at the prize money,” said Harrington. “We’ve set the polling so people can vote daily and really get behind the team they want to win.”
The two winning teams will be officially announced in Wanaka, NZ on 4 September.
The World Heli Challenge is held between 7-15 September based at Lake Ohau Lodge.

Last week BC ripper Dylan Siggers took some time away and sent over an update/re-cap his year of cliffs, pow, comps, tours and sledding. Enjoy the story from the man himself.
Well the ski season is drawing to a close for most of B.C. and one of my favorite times of the year is just beginning. Spring brings an exciting time filled with slushy jump laps, warm weather, goggle tans and a chance to reflect on another season passing.
As the leaves fell and the cast on my arm came off it became a daily excursion to take the van down to the arena and load the trailer with snow. This year we tried to do things differently rather than sticking to the casual back-yard rail. With access to a banshee bungee and some shoveling, the town became a playground.
Then once the snow began to fall, it gave no mercy. Within 72 hours over 40 centimeters of snow had fallen in town. Making driving impossible and skiing incredible!
Its always good when you can ski on the side of the road.
Then because of the early snowfall Fernie Alpine Resort was able to open the mountain prematurely to the eager public. Some of my favorite skiers came down from kimberly and I had the pleasure to ski with them.
The following weeks brought more and more snowfall allowing us to go nuts in the Knot Chutes during the christmas break.
Then as the first and last semester of my Grade Twelve year came to a close, I missed the very last day of high school in my life to attend the Canadian Open Jr.Freesking Championships in Rossland B.C. The venue was much burlier than I had anticipated but my new Influence 115s helped me ski the way I wanted to. After it was all said and done I had emerged in 4th place. It was an excellent weekend and I couldn’t have had a better group of people to spend it with.
Shortly after skiing in Rossland, my home mountain hosted the annual Fernie Jr.Freesking Competition. I was very excited for this weekend, being on my home mountain and somewhat of a veteran I was extremely comfortable skiing the venues. After 6 years of looking to the top of the podium I finally returned barely ahead of two of my good friends Jayden Starnino and Mitch Grahm. Its always a pleasure to be on the podium with friends.
However it was not all smiles. A fellow skier, Amanda Timm, had an unfortunate fall into a tree and was carried off the course via ski patrol with a severe back injury. But she is keeping her spirits high and is staying positive.
The final competition of the year was set at Castle Mountain Resort. They hosted their first Jr.Freesking competion this year and it was incredible. The weather was great, the venues were exciting and the usual crew of amazing skiers came for the contest. Enjoying the sunny skies I watched more of my good friends display some incredible skiing.
One of these people included Graham Trentholm. I watched Graham get lost in a cliff band, spot a very minimal landing 30 feet below him, and casually air to it with a grizzly STOMP. This move was a key ingredient to his first place finish. I was inched out of 1st place and into 3rd by a mere .1 points by Keegan Capel who demonstrated incredibly smooth skiing even when sending 20 foot airs.
Between contests Fernie was being plastered. With one storm cycle bringing over 100cms in a week my new friend Jimmy and I were having the most incredible days possible.
Now after saving my money throughout the winter it was finally time for the trip Jayden Starnino and I had been planning. We decided to take the week and travel through south eastern B.C with a loose time frame. We made stops in Golden, Revelstoke, Nelson and Rossland before making it back home. One of the key parts of the trip is that we planned to film everything. So with his contour HD and my GoPro and T2i we filmed almost every run.
Here is a compilation of the best footage put in chronological order
And here we are. With only two weekends left our ski hill will be closing with a base much greater than 4 meters. There will be plenty of ski touring for the months to come I’m sure. A huge thank you to LINE and SCOTT for treating me so well, it is an honor to represent both companies.
I hope you enjoyed reading this, have a great summer
