Wednesday was amazing, lowest water content I’ve skied all season. Last year we had an epic 30″ dump of pure blower powder and Wed. was almost as good. I headed up early and met up with John Howland and Dane Weister, Wilderness and Timberline were both closed for the day so we had plenty of prime terrain for shooting. Four hikes later and a full memory card I found myself cruising home with some serious wind burn and a perma-grin. Enjoy the photos and get your butts up to the mountains this weekend.
Another storm headed our way for midweek. Forecasters are calling for some serious accumulation up North, keep updated on the weather at famousinternetskiers.com
The surf has been solid lately, I’m still without a long zoom from my switch-over last year so I’m stuck finding creative ways to use wider primes.
I had the pleasure to work with Nick Checo again, this time we were shooting stills for his new album. Super nice spring afternoon in P-town, this was my first adventure with flash photography. Check out his music and like his facebook page here : NICK CHECO MUSIC
Winter has finally returned in full force.
AMPED to have our work up on the TGR site!! (link below) Thanks to Mr. Dunfee for inviting us along in his adventures again. It looks like most of the weather stations have come into agreement regarding 6″+ snowfall across most of New England on Friday into Saturday, bringing with it some serious surf as well. The center of the low pressure will be out to sea, which in this case means the heaviest hit portion will probably Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine coastlines. We’re looking at blizzard conditions with high winds, blowing snow and the possibility of up to two feet of fluffy white stuff. As of now, a lot of the Southern and Central NH mountains are looking to be in the hot spot.
Assuming we do get significant snowfall, the roads will be bad. If at all possible, for maximum powder turns – get your plans firmed up and get outta town by tomorrow evening. The roads on Saturday morning are going to be flat out awful and 93 is going to be Mad Max gridlock nonsense with all the powder crazies trying to get their fix.

“Fog, rain, and deep freezes have bled the East coast dry of the deep base and gut-slapping powder that filled its woods during the Christmas holiday. Despite the lull in the epic, let’s acknowledge a brighter time in the season when the snow was deep and ”faceshot“ was in the weekly lexicon. During that time, Ryan Denning, Lucas Van Oss, Tavis Moonan, and Ryan Dunfee set out to capture some of the best New England skiing in a dog’s age on film. ”

What the *&$#!!! I got a picture message early this morning from a friend at Bolton, basically the snow has been completely depleted on some trails and there is open water running down the mountain. As terrible as this is, we are looking at dropping temperatures starting this morning with snow showers already being reported at MRG and Stowe. Also, a few small bursts of snow this coming weekend and the chance of some more next week.
On Tuesday Ragged Mountain recieved 4″ of beautiful dry fluff, just like most of the Northeast. Andrew and I headed up early and met up with their Communications Manager Jamie and his buddy Dave from CO. They kindly showed us around the hill for a few hours on Ragged’s 6 person lift. It doesn’t get much better than an empty hill, 6 pack lift and pow on groomer.
Well, I guess it does. And it did, at Bridger Bowl. Have a look at the video below….the same day we went to Ragged. Happy Birthday to brother Casey, it looks like he scored in Montana this week!
We need Feburary to be dark and stormy, pray for the return of winter. PLEASE!
Today is the memorial of Danny Miller’s passing, wishing the best to his family and his son, Landon. Would like to thank Sean Miller for an awesome memorial bonfire on Saturday! Today was also Danny’s Birthday so Happy Birthday Miller.
Just a few photos from recent weeks, we have a new ski edit coming out soon so stay tuned!
