Highlights of the trip: Ramen (lots and lots of Ramen), Monkeys, the smell of foreigners, friendship…oh yeah, and some pretty sick skiing.

March 21, 2014– It was a warm, greybird day at Wild Mountain. In the early morning, the snow came down wet and heavy, in a furious choke. The Park Crew had spent the week building a channel gap, which had a 60ft transfer, and a Frankenstein rail feature. The snow was turning to sludge, concrete; antagonizing the group of skiers that had assembled to shred. House Team Riders Dan Hampton, Cody Thornberg, and Shane McNally, along with pals Kyle Thornberg, Craig Weiler, Mac Mitchell, Mitch Forsythe, Andrew Tolzmann, and a brief visit from the screamin’ Norwegian Kenny Jorgenson, hammered a stellar full-day session despite Mother Nature’s best efforts to trash the party. Nothing a couple sprays of RainX can’t solve (seriously, these bros sprayed the bases of their skis to make this happen). Big thanks to Kyle Thornberg and the Wild Mountain Park Crew, as well as the entire Wild Mountain Staff.

When Flow Snowboards pro rider Mike Basich gets and idea it’s usually a pretty good one. The idea was simple – start a shot holding a GoPro on a pole and then let it go and have it fly away on a drone collecting the rest of the shot. What does the future hold for shots like this?
