An early March trip to the Sierra's had turned warm and made building mega booters into powder landings (always the objective) impossible. While a disappointment at the time, these change of plans usually lead to different and often more interesting features, Such was the case when the crew turned it's sites onto a perfect rockgap that had been staring us down on the highway to and from the backcountry location we'd been driving to everyday that week. It was easy access hiking and even better for the media crew, as the best angle was from where we parked. Lukas Huffman went first and left a perfect landing trail to guide the eye in Jussi's photo. While an obvious spot being passed up might seem confusing, the focus in snowboarding at the time was pushing the limits of size in jumps and rotation in spins. This spot provided neither, but it sure was a nice break from the typical routine from the visual side of things and way to showcase terrain and style. What a dream to have been able to shoot it with the likes of Lukas and Jussi.
