When last winter started slowly we we’re sitting around and I wanted to make something a little more interesting than the general snow shots we we’re running on Snowledge for marketing and social purposes. So we goofed off for a day and filmed this, but then it did start snowing and I had a very rough version sitting in Premiere for most of a year, the biggest delay was finding a voice over artist. I tried getting a couple of people involved but in the end I was sitting down with Chase Schwietzer over pizza for another project and brought this up as something I had been meaning to get sorted, he jumped at the chance to be involved and really came through. When I got the final cut sorted a bunch of his best friends couldn’t pick it was him so I’ll take that as him being deep enough in character. Thanks also to Kenzie and Eric for being willing to help with stupid things I want to do and watch out for the next few versions I have sitting in a note but if they get done sooner or later is a question that will be seen later.

Getting to work for Snowledge is pretty cool, getting to ski with the founder is really rad when they ski like Eric. After a seriously good season in Tahoe and a lot of tiny camera days just ripping around the local spots we tried to keep this a lot less P.O.V. than the 16 edit and it ended up being a majority of my shots with a little help from others and then my cut.
