After an incredible trip to Alaska, I came home and a few days later was on the move again. Friday I was shooting for Salomon at Snowbird, Saturday and Sunday shooting at Breckenridge, for Vail Resorts, on Monday shooting for Mountain Hardwear in Marin County, and on Tuesday and Wednesday back in Colorado shooting for Powder Magazine in Boulder and Aspen. It was a whirlwind trip with late night flights and a lot of driving, but really productive and a lot of fun.

I just returned from an amazing trip to Haines, Alaska with Matchstick Productions and the Mountain Hardwear team – James Heim, Sam Anthamatten, and Michelle Parker. French skier Richard Permin also joined the crew. We arrived in Haines on Feb 19, excited to get out in the mountains after hearing stories all winter about the epic snowfall in Alaska this season. After a couple of days the weather broke and we flew out for our first runs of the trip on a clear, cold day with our pilot Jay Quinlan, the former snowmobiler who was featured in many past MSP movies pushing the limits on his sled.
I love Alaska. It’s the best skiing in the world and an incredible place to photograph. I’ve taken many trips to ski and shoot in these amazing mountains, and every trip is just as exciting as the first one. February is early for skiing in Alaska. The days are short and the sun is low, but the light is amazing and there are very few skiers around. We flew 4 out of the 12 days we were there and, except for one other crew, we had the entire range to ourselves. We found great snow, impressive lines, and the skiers stepped it up for some great shots.
I’ve created a full gallery of some of the behind the scenes taken up at Haines.. see below.
