You're Only as Cool as Your Dog

Follow ski photographer Ace Kvale and his dog Genghis Khan across 400 miles of desert in this tear-jerking vid.

Well-known ski and adventure photographer Ace Kvale turned 60 last fall. To celebrate, he planned a 60-day, off-trail backpacking trip around Utah's Canyon Country with his 10-year-old blue heeler, Genghis Khan a.k.a. 'Desert Dog.' 

The duo covered over 400 miles on their journey. The film from the adventure is enough to make us all leave work and go home to our own adventure pups. 



The Process

Skier and producer Jesse Hoffman takes us through his skiing process in the Elk Mountains in this beautifully crafted edit. Yep, this one raised our arm hair.
