After my trip to Mammoth I was able to go spend a few days with my cousin Riley and a couple friends including one of my best friends Robz down in Riverside. With high temperatures it was a nice little break for a few days before flying over to Salt Lake City and riding Park City for a few days.
This was a trip i've been very excited about making for a long time, since it would be my first time skiing Park City. The first day I headed up with my buddy Colter and we had a blast taking hot laps on the jumps, and in the evening taking a few pipe laps. Throughout the day we met up with Joss Christiansen and a few others friends to have a fun day on the slopes!
The next day I went up to the slopes with my buddy Ian and Scott, but ended up hiking and filming them a little bit. Since the weather wasn't that great at all we decided to head out pretty early and go hangout with some friends instead. Later that night I was able to go watch my first NBA game with Aj Meldahl, Cody Perin, Shane Dowaliby, and Sam Erickson. Pretty cool to go and watch one finally, and a special thanks to whoever handed us free tickets in front of the stadium.
The following morning Park City let Toy Soldier Productions have a private shoot on one of the jumps before the mountain opened. The crew for the morning session consisted of me, Khai Krepala, Jake Doan, Aj Meldalhl, Cam Snyder, and Cody Perin. With that hour of shooting we all got a bunch of tricks and had a bunch of fun. After sessioning we took a little break, then kept on skiing till the afternoon before heading back to Salt Lake for a little barbeque with the boys. The following day I went up for a few fun laps with the guys and then headed out to Montana for a little park shoot up at Moonlight Basin.

I always enjoy going over to Bozeman, so many good people to hang out with and you always know you're gonna have a good time. For this park shoot we only had two days of riding so we skied hard, and all got some shots for the upcoming movie. At the session was Sandy Boville, Khai Krepala, Jake Doan, Finn Anderson, Dash Kamp, Shay Lee, Brock Paddock, Cody Perin, and Willis Englehart.
The day after our shoot at Moonlight a few of us went over to Big Sky to session an urban rail right in front of the resort. This was so cool since the mountain pushed us a lip for the feature and got some snow for the landing. And when we started to hit the feature we had a few spectators on hand to witness Khai, Dash, and Joan get after it.
I headed back home to Spokane the next day, but I'm so glad I was able to have such a blast skiing with some awesome people. Cannot wait to hang out with the guys again to film a bit more, have some great times laughing, and making some memories.
