Rabarber in breck from Jacob Wester on Vimeo.Breckenridge is gnarly in December. Temperatures hover around 0 degrees fahrenheit, the wind relentlessly rips through the parks, and the features are generally firm. With cold temperatures, circulation drops immensely and the simple act of riding the chairlift makes our muscles weak, exhausted, and immobile. Thankfully, on the day of Dew Tour practice, it snowed 6 inches, the temperature was slightly warmer, and the landings were softer than usual. With nothing more than a ContourHD, my friend Jacob and I filmed my favorite edit of the season. Despite small features, mellow trickery, and aggressive flat light, this edit serves as a reminder that park skiing was built on a foundation of fun. Regardless of the conditions, weather, features, or external variables, creating something out of nothing and remaining positive is a remarkable feeling.
