A Whimsical Quest to Find a Hermit in the Backcountry

In this creative short, director Zeppelin Zeerip and a small crew of backcountry skiers and snowboarders make their way into the quiet, rugged Selkirks in search of a mythical figure: a hermit, long rumored to have dined on missing cats, who may or may not be hiding out in those very mountains. Part comedy, part mystery, part shred film, this sweet little video is well worth your time.
