Well the adventures never end… I finally made it to Greece and the place we are all staying after spending 48+ hours in a plane/airport. However my bags and everything I need did not. I found out Josh Bibby’s bags also did not make it in from his flight, so we both were out of luck for the first day. Luckily we were informed that our bags would be showing up at 4 P.M. So for the first day we just hung out got use to the time change (which is about 10 hour difference, so as I’m writing this its 5 A.M.) I pretty much stuffed my face with an amazing breakfast and lots of coffee this morning. The food here is amazing and I may come home about 10 pounds heavier, OOPS! Anyway, the plan was to drive to the airport and get our bags at 3, But why drive when you can fly! We took off from out hotel and was at the airport in about ten minutes, I must say you definitely feel like a bad ass when you show up by heli to get lost luggage. Unfortunately upon arrival I was informed that my bags would for sure be in the following day, however one of Josh’s bags did make it. So the heli ride to the airport wasn’t for nothing after all. Afterwards we went into town to an amazing little restaurant were I continued to stuff my face with amazing Greek food and something called Zeus Juice (home made wine). So tomorrow is another day and hopefully I will be able to report back that I have bags in hand.
^ Our digs for the next couple of day.
^ We are right on the Sea
^ Our bird the the trip, A-Star
^ Breakfast here at Greece could be a problem…
^ We don’t drive to get our bags… WE FLY!
^Bibby stoked we are on his way to get his bags.
^ En route to get bags
^ Special delivery for Josh. Ski bags
^ Nothing like a little Greek food
^ Mouth watering
^ Greek Poutine?!
^ And Zeus Juice! (Home made wine)
So hopefully my bags show up and we can get started on this film. Until then I’m going to drink and stuff my face with amazing food.
Just found out Ian Coble and I got the cover of the new Ski Presse mag. Not only did we get the cover but they did a full write up on Ian and gave him gallery. I made the cut in the gallery along with other athletes.

So all and all came away with some sick shots in the mags. Now its off to SIA for a couple days, but just my luck the minute I booked my ticket it starts snowing here in WA. O well will get back after it shooting when I get home.
Finally had some down time to edit all my GoPro footage from my trip to CMH. Wish I would of busted out the camera more and shoot some more footage, but at least this gives you a little taste of what it was like up there. Thanks again to everyone at CMH and K2 for having such a sick lodge and operation. really hope to get back up there and do some real filming in the future. The place has some amazing terrain!
About two weeks ago I got the call to go over to Whitefish, MT to film with Warren Miller again. This time I would be heading over there with Josh Bibby and hitting up the mountain along with a cat skiing operation. We headed out for a week but ended up getting just all sun and not really a lot of new snow. So Josh and I headed home, but the minute we left it started snowing. So after two days of being home I hoped on a plane and headed back for a quick four day stay. This time we got good snow and some sun. snapped some quick shots from out trip.

Well here is Smith optics Prospecting Idaho 3.6 featuring Bobby, Gus, Leo, Sam, Collins and Myself out in the zone last year. Everyone killed it and I think everyone will enjoy this ski webisode. So check it out.
Winter is getting closer! Just found out earlier this week that I have some more photos running. First one is Ian Coble and I got the poster for Stevens Pass

Also Ian did a great write up for ESPN.com about shooting last winter here in the PNW and preparing for this winter, with that he also included an awesome gallery of photos he took.
