Early morning tours for earning turns, and later, snacks. I’m forever grateful for protected spaces to escape to, and appreciate organizations and brands that help protect and maintain these special lands. Brands like @Nature_Valley, who has committed to donating up to 3 million dollars over the next three years to the National Park Foundation (@GoParks). Now through Mid-May, grab a box of Nature Valley Oats N’ Honey granola bars and support the cause - proceeds will go to support our national parks! #NatureGives #FindYourPark #EncuentraTuParque #ad

A crisp sunrise/moonset. Taking this photo, I reminisced on a day around this time last year when I skied this peak with my Sweetheart. We got ourselves in a situation that could have been avoided, and both ended up setting off slides that ripped down the face and poured over the 200ft cliff ban below (thankfully either of us were caught). Then, once in the “safety” of the trees, I skied right up to a mountain lion who was wandering through the forest... a whole separate story. Being deathly afraid twice in a day is certainly a shock to the system, and a reminder that these places are as powerful as they are beautiful. Stay safe out there my friends.
P.S. Can anyone name this mountain?

I don’t mean to be dramatic, but it’s been such a gray winter in Wyoming and I feel like I haven’t seen the sun in about 37,829 days. I also have a hard time getting motivated to take photos during constant overcast, so here’s a little throwback to spring of last year. Winter posts to resume tomorrow. 🌻❄️ .

Kapow! I’d never witnessed anyone drop @jacksonhole’s legendary Fat Bastard until two days ago. And then I was lucky enough to see it happen twice! Both of these boys (@dr.huckinstuff and my friend Dave) sent massive front flips and landed them flawlessly.

About the shots:
Camera: Canon 5D Mark IV
Lens: Canon 16-35 f2.8
Settings: Burst mode (7 frames/sec) ISO 100, 1/1600sec, f/4.0 (I wish I’d changed my aperture a bit for the second shot to maintain better focus, I just didn’t realize that he’d be skiing into frame so much). As far as combing the images... it literally took me hours in Photoshop. I didn’t want to simply stack the images as some of the frames would have put the skier overlapping the last, so I traced around the person in each individual shot and then copied it into the first image, where I was able to manually move them into a position where they weren’t overlapping the last frame. So that means that the rotation you see may not have taken place at that exact spot in the sky. I’m not a Photoshop wizard and I only use it occasionally for very specific things, so if you know of a better way to do this, please let me know!
Oh, and another quick side tip for ski photography: Try not to mess up the snow in front of your shot. It makes such a big difference to have clean foreground snow and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve messed this up. 😂 .

Since it’s Love Day, I figured I’d introduce my hunny and tell a little story since we don’t post a lot of pictures together. This is @mtn_michael, and we started dating almost two years ago on a trip to the desert. We spent one day climbing together, and then he asked me if I would be up for climbing Castleton Tower (the tall, skinny tower above our heads in the photo). Not really knowing what I was getting myself into, I agreed, mostly just excited that this cute guy wanted to go on an adventure with me. At the time, I was new to climbing and my experience with the sport had been limited to a couple of easy routes, and Castleton ended up being just a little harder than what I was used to. I fell multiple times on the second off-width pitch (I’d never even heard of off-width climbing, much less tried it), bruising both my body and my ego. Mike was super encouraging, and even though it was pretty ugly, I made it through with the thought that if I was willing do this ridiculous shit to hang out with this guy then he must be pretty great! Fast forward to now: my climbing has improved, but not by much. Thankfully Mike is still willing to put up with me though. 😜
First photo: last week
Second photo: two years ago on the summit of Castleton Tower. .

Ski/snowboard photography can be such a challenge for me. Between finding the right angle, light, snow conditions, trying to communicate with an athlete who is often out of shouting range, and only having one chance to nail the shot, things can get downright frustrating. It doesn’t happen often, but sometimes things just fall into place perfectly - like this lucky moment when @scottb_8n started bombing down the face across the ridge from where I was setting up for a different shot. I just happened to be able to snap a photo in time before he was gone, and it ended up being one of my favorites from that day.
