I didn’t ride everyday but I did ride every month and every month theres something pretty all time to do, thanks to all the friends who did this with me.
The winter of twenty seventeen was something to remember in the Tahoe region, and as the testing home of Snowledge I spent a lot of the season grabbing clips, not really ever filming for this but just taking everything I could get with the crew and cutting it a whole lot of different ways, from posting in the app to longer clips in a number of different ways and this is the cumulation of that. Testing an app has never been better.
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.
I had the absolute pleasure of being invited along for a couple of shoots with Matchstick Productions on their newly released project, Drop Everything. In a weird turn of events I was actually in the trailer as linked below 1:36 I’m sliding the camera along for a ridiculous little setup, the shot cuts in the middle and the camera isn’t even turned on for one of the shots but none of the shots I filmed made it to that cut. Last night I joined a massive cast to at Squaw to see the Squaw segment which blends history and an amazing progression of skiing, which I’m honored to say I had a couple of shots in, as well as one in Marcus Eder’s section.
A huge thanks to Scott, Connery and Marcus for the opportunity, to everyone else involved well done and anyone who hasn’t seen it yet get the film online here.
Of one of the strangest trips I’ve been on recently, I took a massive road trip as only possibly in the U.S. to head into Yellowstone and through to Beartooth Basin Summer Ski area for a 2* FWQ event, the weather was off and on so this was a little between, touristing, road laps and the comp.
As we continued up through the Cascade range we hit weather in Oregon, this was the longest I’ve spent in the state and started to see the beauty in the place, Bend does amazing beer as well as has some real fun mountains to climb.
The first episode of Cascadia, the spring split board and ski touring project, Mike Handford along with a bunch of friends, myself and some cameras but at this point I’m going to let the video speak for itself.
