Best Day of the 2012 winter season? Its a big call.

So. Last Monday Treble Cone had 50 plus cms of heavy snow. We thought it was going to be the last dump. In fact I called the video from that day Late Season Dump. And you can see it here:

However, during Saturday and into Saturday night, it was raining cats and dogs in town, and cold too…
The forecast was for cloud and rain and snow showers. All things that point to a day editing rather than filming. But I diligently got up early and sussed the situation out. It was clearing… and sunny.

Got up to TC ASAP to capture one epic run of flips and spins on the front side. Once I had had a taste of how LIGHT and DRY the snow was got to the bottom, put the camera way and went and got some! BOOM!

Here is the edit from that day…

Best Day of 2012? Riders and Sliders last day. from Treble Cone on Vimeo.

I ended up getting a couple of laps int he saddle basin before coming back to work in home basin filming the last day of riders and sliders. This is a 10 week program that runs on Sundays. School kids in lessons parents skiing.

Once I had enough footage of that, I once again put the camera away and rode for myself. I landed 2 tame dogs aka nollie front flips off the sides of easy rider which was the first time. I also was busting out my new Burton Ante Up jacket that I got cheap as chips for $99 on www.lastseason.co.nz – i have nothing to do with them other than buying a $269 USD jacket for $106 NZD delivered.

Wanaka Winter 2012: Snowboarding Filming Living.

So back into another winter we go, but after -35*c… I have to say it its pretty mild here in Wanaka. Not that it is not cold here, just that I can go out in a T-shirt during the day, which you can’t really in Banff.

It has been cold enough up the hill, with snowmaking going more often than not…in fact it is pretty much constant the days I’ve been up there. I went up o the Thursday we were due to open, but due to very strong winds (120kpm gusts) they delayed opening till Friday. Went up early and got a time lapse of the sun rise and early morning journey from Wanaka. Did some follow cam laps and slider shots, bailed just after midday and got the edit out by about 6pm. Was a good day and people were stoked, including me, it was good to ride again.

After that there were a few things I needed to cover in the next week to make the 2nd edit for Treble Cone. Ice carving and conditions in the saddle. The ice carving take a long time and a large change occurs so chose to time lapse this while getting a few cheeky laps in. Then came back the next day to see the finished project. As they are stationary, I chose to use slider shots to bring something that would add depth. The objects moving at different speeds past the camera help us gauge distance. The guys n gals carving did an amazing job.

I caught up with one of the ski instructors Campbell Smith, and hsi freeski group over in Shooter to finish off the video. I shot them at 60fps as I knew I wanted to do some superslomo and the more frames the better! Also a higher shutter sppeed than the 180 rule, help out in post. Got some nice shots down to about 1000fps.

Check out some slomo here, in Week One 2012:

So, I’m all set up for the season. Have good housemates, good set up, double glazing and a big kick ass desk. A beautiful work place, which makes my day job pretty easy.

Thanks to snowboarding, the support of my friends, family. Peace.

Snowboarding with Emily Park

Snowboarding was fun in Banff last year. After riding Lake Louise all season Emily and I headed over to Sunshine Village for the final 2 weeks. With nothing better (or worse) to do we took to chilled park laps and beers in the arvo… nice. This is the edit I put together from those last few fun weeks snowboarding.
