Lifecycle of a Powderwhore

Filmmaker: KGB Productions

Duration: 6 min 12 sec

Jonah Howell grew up in a devout Mormon family in Salt Lake City, UT. He first started skiing in high school, but his mission, a mandate of the Mormon Church, took him far away from the powder of the Wasatch. Fortunately for all you Powderwhore fans out there, he quickly realized that the church wasn’t for him and re-directed his energy, pursuing skiing and the mountain life, with the piety of a true Jack Mormon. But it wasn’t until he borrowed his dad’s camcorder and together with his brother Jonah, started crafting ski edits of his friends that the idea occurred to him that he might be able to make a living, albeit a dirtbag one, from the ski bum way of life.
