Our first day up at Mt Bachelor was by far our most successful. Everyone arrived on saturday or sunday and was ready to begin slaying our private park. Everyone came up on monday (including some local skiers) for our first day. The skiers that made the shoot were Travis Durtschi, K.C. Deane, Sean Hartel, Cedric Tramblay Fournier, Andy McDowell, Lucas Wachs, and Dan Bruton. Also photographers Andrew Golden and Max Miller joined the crew, which included Cameron and I.

Lucas being LucasThe session began quickly on the first jump. Within a half an hour an injury plagued our crew again! This time it was K.C. Deane getting knocked out on a basic shifty 180.

Andy McDowell and Ced decided to try to switch jacketsWhen lunch ended it was time to go hit up the second feature in our park. It was a sort of unique feature. An 80 foot channel gap, but with the jump in the middle. Unfortunately another one of our skiers, Lucas Wachs, went down at the beginning of the channel gap session.
The channel is finished and ready to go!!

Nice Sunset on the drive homeIn the end our Mt Bachelor photoshoot was tons of fun and pretty successful. Although it is already mid may, that does not mean our season is over. We still have tons of filming to do before our film is complete. Keep up to date in our updates. Next update will be backcountry booter sessions.
