Aaron Chase

"The forest out here in British Columbia is magical," said Chase. "The trees are huge, the trails are steep, and you’re doing whatever it takes to keep your tires on."

The ride begins on a steep mossy rock-roll worthy of any Coast Mountain edit, but then things quickly step up a notch. With freeride icon Brett Tippie along to stoke the session, Chase’s legendary riding skills are showcased hitting up a precise, high-consequence log-ride-to-drop built and pioneered by Darren Berrecloth.

To finish, Chase and eventually Tippie send a ridiculous gap jump over a creek. “The consequences are super high," said Chase of the trail's most robust feature. "You’re field-goaling between two trees and there’s a pretty ninja pump track to get into it.”
