Nothing to Prove, The Movie - Part 2

September 2014 - Transworld Snowboard Magazine

(I worked as a still photographer on this two part movie presented by TWS)

Nothing To Prove part two tells the stories of snowboarding in Utah through the eyes of the Celtek Gloves crew. After getting their fill of street riding in part one the crew packed up their bags and headed off to Utah in search of more shred. Once in Utah they meet up with snowboarders Chris Grenier, Griffen Sibert, and Sam Taxwood for some resort riding. But then the snow fell and there was powder to be ridden. Bjorn Leines returned after his injury and headed into the backcountry with Chris Grenier, Aaron BiittnerRandy Vannurden, and Krister Ralles. Where the boys lay waste to all kinds of backcountry features.

Once the snow dried up it was time for the holy bowly. Cale Zima, Brandon Hammid, Ted Borland, Deadlung, Bode Merrill, Ben Bilodeau, Erik Leines, Lucas Magoon, Kazu Kokubo, and a few more made their way out of the woodwork to compete in the contest. The movie ends with some more backcountry riding from Bjorn Leines, Chris Grenier, Aaron Biittner, and Krister Ralles. Aaron Biittner’s full part from the Nothing To Prove movie drops next Wednesday exclusively at TWSNOW.com.

Opening Weekend @ Brighton Resort

Shot for Snowboarder Magazine - November 2010

Brighton Resort is a quintessential snowboarder’s mountain. Fun park features that change on a daily basis, freeride terrain that rivals the worlds most fun waves and skate parks, and such sick backcountry access that you can go “Deeper-er”, easi-er.
 

When you read this, Brighton will have been open for at least 5 days. One of those days was pretty much bluebird, and the rest experienced wintery weather, which only contributed to the healthy pre-season snow depths. Rather than use this space to name drop and give a trick by trick, I’ll just show you a few highlights from those 5 days.
