Road Trip Part One

   Monday we (me, Jordan Rehrer, and Jade Thomason) left Utah and drove into South Lake Tahoe, CA to stay with John Power, director of the Terrain Parks at Sierra At Tahoe Resort. Shredded all-day on Tuesday. Ready for another day tomorrow, but here's a few trips so far of the trip:

003 - Hat Trick

   This season has been epic, and we're totally stoked on how much good powder we've been able to ride, and Episode Three is a testament of that. Filmed at Park City, Brighton, The Canyons, and Snowbird, as well as the Little Cottonwood Canyon backcountry.

   Featuring the riding of myself, Blake Nyman, Jordan Rehrer, and Derek Olthuis, with a cameo from Jade Magnum Thomason.  Special thanks to our sponsors:

002 - Momentum

"One way to keep momentum going is to have constantly greater goals."
- Michael Korda

   One of my "constantly greater goals" with Wasatch is for each podcast episode to be extremely different from the rest. I've done a lot of video work over the years, and one thing that really gets under my skin is when someone is either a) pidgeon holed by his or her client base, or b) pidgeon holes him/herself by mass-producing carbon copy material and lacking individuality. This is the primary reason why I do not, nor will I ever, shoot weddings, bridals, or receptions, because I do not want to run the risk of becoming complacent.

   At the same time, it's terribly difficult to come up with something in the ski or snowboard industry that is original. Certainly it happens from time to time, but most of the time the media that gets published is the same thing it's been for the last 15 years, but once in a while something comes along that helps continue building the momentum of the sport, and I hope to be able to model my productions after those groundbreaking members of the industry.

   I hope Episode Two - Momentum treats you well. Derek and Tanner and Jade and I had a really good time putting it all together. Have to shout out to all our sponsors (although some of them don't appear in the final cut of this episode):
