Blue Mountain local and CASG member Matt Brindisi recently dropped an edit featuring some his favorite shots over the last couple of seasons. Instead of having one of our boring editors speak with Matt, we passed the mic to the one and only Max Hill and let him ask the questions that matter. -JM
Your first video appearance in the Voleurz video is about to debut, how was your trip to Edmonton?
Edmonton was pretty dope, I went straight from a plane to a rail setup a few km’s away where I met up with Coal and the Voleurz crew. We spent the next week ravaging through the streets, dodging ‘pedestrian stunting’ fines, and getting shots on whatever we could before getting kicked out. We all had a super fun time, and the trip ended up producing some shots that made the Voleurz movie, “Look on the Bright Side” check that shit out!
What is it like growing up at the top of your local hill?
It’s definately a good feeling to wake up in the morning, drop in from the end of my road and be at the Blue Mountain terrain park within 5 minutes haha. Blue will always be that place I can come back to and call my hometown/stomping grounds.
You have also done rail trips to Montreal in the past. wWhat kind of spots are you looking for next?
This year CASG’s on a mission, we want to travel as much as our wallets allow us and film on some features that people have never even thought of hitting. I don’t wana give too much away, you’ll just have to wait for the first edit to drop!
Add it up quick. A ride on your park chair only takes 2 minutes top-to-bottom and skiing your park is about a 30 seconds lap. How many park laps do you take a day?
More laps than a Indy 500..that’s a lot.
What do you think of Shreducation entering the ski scene?
I think the new Shreducation program is gonna blow up this year. It’s been a success for the snowboard team, and skiing has always needed something like this too. With Tom Dolezel as your coach how can you go wrong?
