Recent Production Projects

Upon Sage Cattabriga-Alosa’s recovery from his 2018 Achillies injury, he turned to PowderQuest for local logistics, resort negotiations, Spanish translation and more for his project “Por Que Esquiar”

After a mini premier tour in Denver, Portland, Bend, and Seattle, I am pleased to share our little project "Por Que Esquiar" with the saturated environment of the Internet. Big thanks to The North Face, ATOMIC SKIING, Smith, CEP Compression USA for the support, PowderQuest for helping our trip run smooth, and to Valle Nevado Ski Resort for hosting us during part of our stay.
