As our crew scavenges the snow patches on the Beartooth Pass for spots to build a jump we find a patch where there just might be a chance of a dream come true, as I stick my snow probe into the snow I realize this is perfect… Time to build a tunnel jump!
June 6, 2021 Its the last day of our annual trip to ski the Beartooth Pass and we plan to end it off with a bang.
After sleeping the previous night away under the stars we are planned and ready to make this dream a reality.
But it wont come easy.
It took nearly 8 hours of shoveling snow and molding jumps till we were getting the first hits in, but boy was it worth it.
As the photographer I knew I had to capture this unique jump, I just had to figure out how…
I found a composition I was really happy with after walking around and through the tunnel for a few minutes and I knew this one had potential
I gave the athletes some time to warm up and myself some time to figure out the exact shot, then all of a sudden it lined up!
Easily one of my favorite shots of the season and I was watching it happen through my viewfinder!
As I rushed over to my friends to show it off I I knew my all encompassing shot was grabbed and I couldn’t be more pleased. My job there was complete, at least until they figure out their next crazy jump in another amazing location…
