By Morgan Dinsdale Last season I had the great fortune to visit one of the most magical places on earth, the Fairy Meadows (Bill Putnam) ski hut in the Selkirk backcountry surrounding Golden, BC.

What It Was Like to Film with Level 1

S: Ethan Swadburg | P: Jay Badgely The year before Benny Smith and Ethan Swadburg filmed for Level 1's latest movie "Pleasure", the boys were both finalist for Level 1's annual Superunkown Contest.
