Well hello there, friendly passerby.
It's been a while since I've written in this funky little doohickey, but I decided that now was the time to post something. It will be, to some extent, uninteresting, as I've been grounded for a good portion of the winter and haven't been able to ski all too much :(
I still managed to bring home some pretty good video. This is the first edit I made with my new camera, just a backyard mess around edit with my buddy during a snowday.

I posted it in HD as an experiment - it's really only the dimensions of the video that classify whether it's "HD" or not...so when you compress, you can just adjust that and get HD status on vimeo!
I took a trip to Telluride, CO, with my cousin about mid-February. Even though it's Oprah's shredding grounds, I found the mountain exciting and BIG compared to anything I've skied before - it took forever to get anywhere. We did some hike-to stuff off Palmyra and Bald Mountain, and found a sick secret spot in between Dihydral and Genaveve. We hit up the park a bit too, and shreded with Gus and Kolby Ward for a couple runs, which was sick - those kids RIP hard. Here's a cliip of my cousin, throwing his first rodeo/flatspin over the second jump in the set. Answers as to what this trick is are appreciated - he stomped it FYI.

The highlight since then was a two-day weekend trip to Okemo. The snow was soft and a tad bit slow, but it was warm and we had a good time anyway. I finally realized how much better my friends had gotten over their vacation week skiing the Stratton park. Here's an edit I threw together from the footage from the first day of that weekend.

I have a TON more footage that isn't captured yet - the daunting task is scaring me into submission. When I get it up I'll be sure to make a little teaser/season edit just to show what we've (I've) been up to lately.
Hopefully you took the time to read this and watch the videos - please leave some feedback for me, regarding editing, writing, anything, let me know. Thanks for reading if you made it this far, and I hope you enjoyed it.
Cheers! Happy spring skiing!
