Camp Krusty.

Camp Krusty was a good one this season, and it was my first time attending.  My friend Lukas Tanaka has made 4 Camp trips so unofficially it was Camp Krusty 4.0. After we finished setting up camp it was time to ski. We spent the entire week up at Timberline for the 7th West coast Sessions.  I have been going to this session for a while now and it is always so much fun lapping the Timberline park.  This is the last of the lower park before they set up the magic mile park further up the mountian.  The Alaska boys came down to check it out as well and look for Boys club episode coming soon, here is one from last year.  Landis Tanaka is going to be posting some medium format images from our trip also check his blog.

Some more photos from my trip to #fantasycamp with Teton Gravity Research.  Got to ski some amazing terrain and it was insane to be skiing with Sage Dana and Sammy, what a dynamic crew!  I have to thank everyone who helped put the camp together, the staff at Alaskan Adventures and our Guides Kent and Beanzy.  All the production, from Todd and Steve Jones to Travis Robb and Dutch Simpson and our photo guy Mark Fischer.P1070035

Field Productions Supervention Filming Update.

Well the trip is over with Field and the Norwegians are on there way back to Norway already to continue filming for Supervention. We spent 2 weeks in the Tatsenshini Mountains just north of the USA border. Exploration was the key I am sticking around the north and am going to head up to the Neacola range with Teton Gravity Research now.  I will keep you guys updated on my travels, going to be camping at the #fantasycamp that is built up out there, check the hashtag on Instagram for more details on that. Oh and this summer there will be a webisode about our trip with Field.

Canada Trip.

Near the end of February I drove north from Utah with my snowmobile in search of some Kootenay pillows.  After alot of crazy weather and fun times re-learning how to snowmobile I got to get into some zones that really were worth all the hard work.  I have to admit the way the snow stacks up in BC is unlike anywhere in the world.  People call them pillows, marshmellows, cheeseburgers, mushrooms, or Mario Land, Nintendo land, whatever you want to call them they are fun as heck to skI!  Huge thanks to Selkirk Wilderness SkiingStellar Heli and Red Mountain. Watch out for next years Teton Gravity Research next year for the shots!




I got to take some runs with a 12 foot boom cam, although I only extended it to full length one time.  It was tricky to get the hang of but I ended up getting some cool shots out of the experience.
