Andy Newell right here, taken during the “off snow” part of the Mammoth shoot yesterday. Location: the most bombed out trailer we could find in Bodie, CA. Newell’s the point man on Fischer JibSkate program – Olympic skier who can flat out rip on his Nordic skis in terrain parks – and they wanted the whole 9 yards as far as images went, so…. Mammoth was great. My legs were pretty whacked by the end of yesterday and I got a bit freaked trying to go down the black diamond run with tele skis, a 50 lb backpack, and rusty legs. But the skiers were patient. Managed to avoid sunburns and crashing, serious hazards when you’re skiing in June. Sitting in ATL right now, waiting for my flight home. This was my 6th cross country flight of the year, maybe time to put the travelling bags in the back of the closet, for a few weeks anyway.
