Sean and Mark McMorris ditch their snowmobiles and find some sweet backcountry lines via helicopter. Later, a disagreement on the fastest route to Kingfisher Helicopter Lodge turns into a truck race between Sean and his brother, Callum.
In 2003, 11-year-old Sean Pettit burst onto the freeskiing scene. By the age of 18 Pettit was already considered to be one of the best skiers in the world. His ability to blend huge, jaw dropping lines with innovative new school style set Sean apart as the torch bearer for the future of big mountain skiing. After a full season on the sidelines recovering from an ankle injury in Winter 2013/2014, Sean was back on track and ready to rock with what is perhaps his most prolific season ever. Not only did Sean produce the award-winning Superproof film, The Masquerade and film a part for ESPN X Games "Real Ski” competition, he is the star of the Red Bull TV's original series "Keep Your Tips Up."
With appearances by Callum Pettit, Richard Permin, Mark Abma, Joe Schuster, and of course ‘Groovemeister’ (Sean’s wildly entertaining father), "Keep Your Tips Up" is a highly engaging, fun and honest depiction of Sean’s life as a skier at home and around the world. Filming for this Red Bull TV original series started in Winter 2014/2015 and took place in locations including Hokkaido, Japan; Courmayeur, Italy; Silverton, Colorado; Valdez, Alaska; Salt Lake City, Utah; and Whistler, BC. The show were aired every two weeks from October through January and were broadcasted on Red Bull TV.
