Gallery: Behind the Scenes of the Sick Days Feature

“Thanks to Mountain High and SNOWBOARDER, we were able to do a shoot with banger features like no other shoot I’ve ever done. It’s not often you get to jump over a bunch of snow bunnies in bikinis—I love my job! The first day I got to Mountain High, they built a pole jam to redirect wall. It took a while to get the pole jam just right so we could hit the wall and come back without splattering, but as soon as it was lined up right, it was on… But by the time we started smashing it, though, the fog rolled in heavy. You had to wait for li’l fog breaks and then dip for the feature, but there weren’t too many of them, so you could just say it was a hazy time. You must be doing something right if you can ride blind! We had a good session on the wall, but it was getting late, so we called it quits.” -Travis Kennedy

This wasn’t the biggest gap these riders have hit, but it was one of the more sketchy ones. The landing was increibley short and flat. Kyle Guinea pigged this gap once, then it was on.  This was the first jump over the girls. (P) Huggy
