I am just back from a week in the American outback. I headed down there with John Roderick the master behind a camera, Jenny Jones, Celia Miller and we had the pleasure of being joined by the photo boss Zach Hooper. It was rad to be out of the park for a week, and out in the back country mixing it up.
Here are a few behind the scenes shots from the trip, make sure to tune back in, we filmed a TV show down there for Outside Television and I am also working on a series of webisodes with Roxy and Red Bull so stay tuned, excited :)
Day 1. Blue bird and the first beast getting built. Zach spakling the jump.
Day 3 a session went off on a natural feature till the Jones came down and created the Jennalanch, luckily I was standing right in her wake as the slab broke. Everyone A okay... first mini avalanche experience.
Just a few kids playing in the streets :) we made an awesome little street course with hips and jib obstacles, not a car in sight.
Street session in town when the storm rolled in. Getting stale on a mini hip. (Photo Ben B)
Street session 2. Wee backie over the Jones.
The Jussi Oksanen jump, really pumped to get some tricks on this bad boy.

I am now back in Breckenridge after a 6 hour mission back last night, I got caught in my first mini slide yesterday, scary business. I went up on a mission to get some more shots in the bag, first hit off the kicker and when I landed the slope released and came crashing down behind me, luckily I split off to the side and noone was caught in it. I think we got out of there at a good time with all the new snow falling down there it needs a reset.
Check back for more US Open business next week!
