XBC #13 Naskusp to Invermere
This is my 140 km from the West to East Kootenay regions during the 2016 XBC Expedition. Flight #13.

Without landing options most of the way, this was the first time any part of this line had ever been attempted. Words could not describe the joy which rushed through my body having succeeded with this flight.

Rough edits of footage, not included in the documentary.
Strong The Wind Blows - Trailer
After losing the love of his life, a Professional Paraglider pilot searches for meaning by embarking upon the most daring series of mountain flights in Canadian history.
Paragliding + Ukulele + Beatbox
After his 140 km flight across the Canada's Purcel Wilderness, Benjamin Jordan (aka "Dirt") celebrated with a song. Can you guess which one?
Mt. Mackenzie - 3 Days on Launch
After top-landing above Pemberton, Jordan was stoked and ready to fly the next day.

The weather, it seemed, had other plans..
Grouse Mtn - Alpine Camping
Though things picked up later on, the first week of Jordan's XBC expedition got off to a slow start.

Here's how he kept busy while stuck on Grouse Mountain, just outside of Vancouver, during three days of low cloud.
Leaving Town (The Start)
Often, the most challenging part of any journey can be making that first step. But you'll be surprised how fluid you move once you get going.
Rough Start / Pizza Better
Nothing heals a week of ramen noodles, stable weather and a bruised ego like a fat, greasy, dirty pizza.
XBC #15 Invermere to Banff
Crossing the Continental Divide as well as Kootenay and Banff National Park beginning in the Columbia Valley / Rocky Mountain Trench. The Divide hasn't been crossed many times and the pilots that have are almost all my idols. Needless to say, I had been terrified of this moment for the ten years I spent dreaming about it.
Cinnamon Girl
In a cow tunnel outside of Cochrane, AB, the birthplace of paragliding in Canada, I hid from the rain, soaked my pants and played my favourite song.
Romero in Flight
One of my favourite songs during this trip, performed high above the town of Invermere, BC

Grouse Mtn. - Bug Net Saga
A Bug Net is something that is easy to take for granted ..until you lose it.
Mt. Cassiope - Alpine Camp Tour
Check out the best part about vol-biv Paragliding ..Camping wherever the frick you land!
Stubborn Coffee Euphorea
Coffee is a Drug, so is Stubbornness it seems. Here's an inside peak to how I walk that fine line :) (WARNING: Swear words)
Going Crazy on the Sea to Sky
I dislike walking on highways while carrying a paraglider. On day 5 of my walk to Whistler, I begun to lose my mind and started having fun with it.
Celebrating the Birthday Cake in My Head
Societal isolation, paired with extreme accomplishment can lead to interesting moments. Here one is captured which I never want to forget.
Final Hike + Alternate Ending
Journey's Rock. Destinations Suck. Here's why, plus an alternate ending to a much different documentary that I chose not to produce :)
Not Scared! OH S*%T!
A euphoric moment I had while hiking an unknown logging road up to an unknown ridge until well past midnight.
Desert Life
To survive in the desert, one must be curious like the birds, or just a lucky dumb human with some decent gear. Here's 3-days in the Cache Creek Hills.
Making Big Choices
Paragliding requires one to be on their game; vol-biv paragliding takes that to the next level. After landing high up on Mt Cassiope, I discuss why I love that.
Water is something we can easily take for granted, until it's not there. After hiking up to what I had assumed would be a good launch, I realized I was going to have to walk 1000 more metres of vertical and be without water for 5 more hours.
XBC #7 Mt Cassiope to Cache Creek
The first major Cross Country flight of this expedition, 104 km across the entire Coastal Range and well into BC's high desert. After 6.5 hrs I was hallucinating in disbelief of what had just happened.
XBC #09 Savona to Salmon Arm
I am not familiar with dry, or small mountains. The Okanagan region features both. Still, after a week of waiting out storms, I was gifted with this perfect day to scratch another 100+ off the route.
Stuck for a Week
On Mt Swansea, above Invermere, BC, I was stuck for a week forced to contemplate whether I really had what it would take to cross the Continental Divide.
