NORTH VANCOUVER, British Columbia, November 21, 2021 – Arc’teryx Equipment, the global design company specializing in technical high-performance apparel and equipment, is proud to present the film ’Here Goes’. A  cinematic, high-caliber short film featuring the best shots from a full winter with Arc’teryx athlete Sam Kuch.

A mantra is a personal phrase that is intended to use your thoughts as a guide. Before Sam drops into any line, he utters his own mantra, "here goes". What began as a superstitious habit has become the final push of confidence used to face any task he might encounter. Everything from public speaking to dropping committed pillow lines in the backcountry. Couple that with a love of music and you’ve got yourself a serious recipe for focus and execution. Filmed purely in the heart of the B.C. backcountry: powder, pillows, lines, backcountry booters and a bunch of quality follow-cam,  ’Here Goes’ is a high-caliber short film featuring the best shots from a winter with ’Skier of the Year’ Sam Kuch.
