Behind The Scenes of Depth Perception with Robin Van Gyn


In Travis Rice’s latest film project, Depth Perception, he invited Austen Sweetin, Bryan Fox, and Robin Van Gyn to share some serious stoke as they tackle some of the most incredible and awe-inspiring back country riding that British Columbia has to offer.

What connects each of them is not only their collective experiences, passion, and respect for the mountains, but also a deeper understanding of the natural world and its impact on their sport.

With the film now touring Europe and soon to hit North America, we asked Robin to give us a little insight into the making of the film, but what we got was more than that. It’s a reasoning that goes beyond hunting for that perfect ride… Scroll down to read more.

Every day was a new kind of challenge, and I can say that the lessons in riding with a crew like ours in the mountains that complex was a once in a lifetime opportunity.
