Rest in Peace CR Johnson

I Just found out that freeskiing pioneer CR Johnson passed away today in an accident at Squaw Valley. In my mind, CR was one of the sport's greatest innovators, throwing huge 360's off cliffs on huge lines. I remember being 17 and following CR and Tanner around for a few runs at Alta. I was so stoked to see these ski legends in the flesh. CR's death is a huge blow to the freeskiing world. Tomorrow we'll be shredding for him. Rest in Peace.

Days Fork Tourin'

Check out this edit I put together from a tour we did a couple weeks ago. Please excuse the choppy editing, I don't have access to a nice computer.

.25 Seconds Before Concussion

Last week we were testing out my friend Shifty's new camera flashes in Gaurdsman Pass. My friend Quiggly and I arranged a tandem shot with him jumping a tree and me slashing next to it. I slashed a little too close to the tree and Quiggly ended up landing on me. Thankfully I was wearing a helmet so I only got a light concussion and some bruises. I'm happy to see that the picture turned out.

Splorin', Scopin', Feedin'

In the days spent healing my sternum injury, my friends and I spent a lot of time touring and exploring the beautiful Utah back country. Injury time is always good for exploring, probing, scoping, and eating excessive amounts of food. Check the photos from my friend Jose Urritia.

After receiving over 100 inches of snow in the span of six days at the end of January, we've had another dry spell here in the Wasatch. The timing has worked out I guess, since I cracked my sternum jumping a large cliff at the end of that storm. For the past few weeks I've been eating lots of Calcium and taking it easy so I can get back into kill mode ASAP.

In the meantime, here's a few pictures taken by Surface Photographer Jason Eichhorst at Brighton Resort last season.
