What do you do when winter ends? I had the pleasure of meeting John Spriggs this fall in the Helena shop. He was a really super nice dude! I had no idea that this is what he liked to do. Crazy! I hope you enjoy the film – When Winter Ends. (FYI… there are some explicit lyrics. Since I’m a mom of three, I just wanted to let you know in case your young ones, like mine, watch it with you. And yes, there’s great trout fishing footage!)
Throughout the summer of 2013, professional skier John Spriggs explores the mountains of Montana for ski mountaineering potential. After the snow finally melts away in the late summer, John turns to Montana’s blue ribbon trout waters to occupy his time and waits for the snow to fall once again.
