If there was a backcountry equivalent to Ingemar Backman's game-changing method air in Riksgransen, it just might be this backside 360 cliff drop by DCP in the winter of 2003. We had been shooting for the better part of a week at Sonora Pass, California and the powder was becoming scarce. In the hunt for good snow we found this cliff band was a bit out of the way from our normal spots. A full session went down on some "normal" sized cliffs and it felt like a bonus round just to get this on baked snow. The trip was pretty much coming to end, but DCP was still hungry. When he went over to this cliff I never really considered that he was seriously going to jump it. I thought, well maybe if it was to snow again, like A LOT, and we came back I could maybe see it. But there was no coming back, he wanted it that day, regardless of current conditions. It was one of those moments where someone harnesses their superhuman strength, like when a person in auto accident can lift the car up to save someone trapped underneath. To this day I don't know how he did it. Snowboarding changed that day, as a pipe kid from Quebec transformed into a backcountry legend to be, with a cliff forever named after him at one of snowboarding's most sacred locations.
