The snow is not epic here now but you can easily find good cold snow with a bit of ski touring.
I went up with my friend Nick today for a quick hike and found everything from powder to spring snow. It was nice to get out of Salt Lake City today with it’s nasty pollution.
I’m not sure I will get the “Blogger of the Year” award this year. I will try to update more frequent!
I have been in USA for a month now. I’m staying with the DPS Skis crew in Salt Lake City and have been skiing mostly in Alta since they were very nice to hook me up with lift tickets for my stay here.
The shooting has been good and I’m very satisfied so far. Apart from shooting for DPS I had a French crew here with Enak Gavaggio and Patrick Vuagnat to shoot a story for Skieur and we have been mixing in local riders Jamie Pierre and Julian Carr.
We have done 2 short trips to Jackson Hole that has been great. First session was storm skiing and deep pow and the last one had blue bird and great snow.
Yesterday was one of the better days in a long time. We went up with the first tram in Jackson and Jamie had a few cliffs lined up. The conditions were perfect so when the first lap was done he had jumped 4 very impressive cliffs.
After that we took 2 more laps on the tram and headed up to the Teton pass to get some sunset shots. We were hiking in the fog for about 45min but then we came above the fog and got an amazing sunset. I won’t show any action pictures from that session but I give you one scenic.
Below is a short video of Jamie’s show and some shots of things I like, food and sweets!
