Pillows

Wednesday, January 25th, 2012

Another week has passed and it’s still snowing. Sometimes very hard snowfall, sometimes just light snow and fog. We have been out touring almost every day so the legs are getting tired by now but it’s all good when your able to ride pow.
Eliel showed us a very nice pillow zone that we have been up to a few times now with some good results.
Here is a video from the past week and a teaser of the zone we have been to.

After a few sunny days with ok snow the low pressure rolled in. We had got a few good shots so far but the snow made it a bit hard to get great stuff even if the riding has been good and a lot of fun.
It did not look like this storm would bring that much snow but we got a very positive surprise when we got to the mountain today. Eliel Hindert joined the crew today so now there are three riders, Eliel, Piers and Jesse.
We are all pretty tired from riding and tomorrow is a new early start so here are a few shots form today plus a video from before and during the storm.

Me and Piers got in to Nelson 2 days ago and hooked up with Ben from Sweetgrass and Jesse Hoffman.
We got a nice and mellow start here in Whitewater yesterday. It was cold and blue sky with good snow. We took it pretty easy and did not shoot that much because Piers is sick and Ben has not got all his touring gear yet. The first part of the day Tobias Liljeroth from the Swedish ski mag Åka Skidor showed us around and took us to some good spots.
It’s a bit cloudy today so we are having a slow start but will head up soon to see if it clears a bit.
Here are a few shots form yesterday.

Seb and Jon covers

Tuesday, January 10th, 2012

Two new covers dropped in and this time it’s French SKI Magazine and German SNOW.
The SKI cover is of Seb Garhammer skiing in Pemberton, BC at Backcountry Snowcats during our shoot for the Peak Performance catalog.
The other one is of Jon Larsson in Sestriere. It’s actually the same day as his cover last month on SKI Magazine, just about 10 minutes a part.
I’m in Spokane, WA now waiting for our ride to Nelson, BC. I have a massive jetlag from the 20h flight and have been up since 4am. I’ll post an update about the plans in Canada soon.
Here are the covers.

AK video

Sunday, January 8th, 2012

I had the pleasure to join Ben Sturgulewski, Johan Jonsson, Forrest Shearer and Stephan Drake last April on a camping mission in Hanies,AK.
Here is a short video from that trip that Ben and the Sweetgrass crew put together. Ben really know how to capture the right feeling and his eye for a beautiful shot is spot on.
I’m happy to join Ben on Monday again in Nelson, BC for the upcoming Sweetgrass project.

Storm

Saturday, January 7th, 2012

It has been snowing for a few days here in Engleberg but it has also been very strong winds. Everything was closed on Thursday but it did open up yesterday so we went up to Brunni for a few runs. We found some good snow but also ran in to very strong wind at some places.
It calmed down a bit yesterday evening and the snow should keep dumping so I think it could be even better up there in the next few days.
Here is a mellow video from yesterday.
