I have this slight filters dilemma, I can’t tell you my dream day in the mountains. I hear from most people it’s pretty simple. Fresh snow, Helicopter and those parts I agree on I’ve been lucky to have been in that situation on multiple occasions. I have the problem of which side of the lens I want to be on. The best feeling is riding a board no doubt but I feel more fulfilled at the end of the day when I sit down at the computer and work through the footage, capturing the artistic spirit of the mountains, not to say I don’t remember a perfect turn or an air but I love keeping the moments alive and for the world to see. Sometimes I can do both and I really want to work on some better self portraits this winter.
This video is a lot of those in-between moments, A quick rip around the hill when the usual suspects are nowhere to be found on a pretty good but not epic day, a few park laps when the crew are feeling beat up from new tricks or just not feeling like anything is coming together and I can throw them the follow cam stick.
And for the help with this I am super grateful to everyone that helped with these shots.I know the sacrifice even when your feeling good but not perfect to take the camera down setup and get setup.
