Mike Basich is as rugged as they come. He is a modern day mountain man. He can update his Instagram while in remote Alaskan Backcountry. All he needs is the bare essentials; his Flow Snowboarding gear, an avalanche kit, and a GoPro. While most of us are dreaming of these adventures, Mike Basich is living it.
Favorite thing about Backcountry
“Quiet, No tracks, and nobody telling you where to go!”
How has GoPro changed the way you share your snowboarding?
“GoPro has saved my back, I used to haul around a 40 lb backpack, now my pack doesn’t even know there is a camera in it. That’s for sure one of the best parts. Quality with it has been great too in such a small package. I ride with the camera more, I used to set up things a lot on a tripod.”
What can we expect from Mike Basic This year and your Storm Chasers Project?
“For sure working more and more this year to chase the storms. I’ve been building a new rig on a trailer that I am excited to head to Alaska with this spring.”
What other things can we expect?
“Working on getting more creative with filming, been racing as well with what’s left of winter, such a late start. I’m excited to get some deep days in.”
