This is Val d'Isere a few years ago up on the Pissaillas Glacier, makes me laugh everytime I watch it. It's a mate of mine landing on his snot attempting some air.

I've done that with photoshop.
Take a multishot (tech terms are not my thing) and then layer them over each other, need a tri-pod to keep it still enough, so it is the same picture, just with the boarder in a different position.

I've got myself one of these, which the plan is to then be able to create a tripod type thing by wrapping it around my skis and then try for some fancy shots like that with my DSLR. I just have yet to lug all my kit up a mountian on a fine enough day and find a decent spot to do such things yet.

Actually there was no tripod involved, just my brother and his nikon digital SLR, and a very steady hand!!

Once you have the shots you can stitch the shots together using layer masks in photoshop, there are loads of tutorials online about this, just google it.

The hard part is finding a camera that will shoot burst shots fast enough, most point and click cameras are way too slow

the first two are from January 2007. i went up to Beijing for about 5 days (i was living in Hong Kong at the time) for a Burton jam. got to ride with Wang Lei, Burton-sponsored Pro. awesome week. Man-made snow in Nanshan was pretty sweet, as was the park.





lift and matterhorn porn from Zermatt, Dec '06 (actually about 2 weeks before Beijing!)





and here's me building a kicker at a public park in toronto about 2 weeks ago. (we had been at mt st louis moonstone the week before, were due to go to horseshoe that day, but were denied entry on bus cos boards weren;t in bags. we made our own fun though





boards of canada ( the burton troop is my baby. arent the travis rice lib techs only goy-jiss?)



parry sound







sorry for the inundation. i've none from my seasons in NZ sadly but am loving browsing through all the stuff that's been posted here so far. keep it up

Just realised I never stuck up pics of my time in NZ (thanks for the unintentional reminder La La!)

The life of a liftie! That's my friend who's job I took over when he left. Taxing stuff!


Scary day coming home. That was off the mountain! Four wheels with chains and still sliding all over the gaff!


Bluebird at the Remarks! No pics from The Stash! I will next time! Me jumping the roof or something!


Finally after days of no snow it started! I was happy, as you can see!


Not a bad view from the office eh?! It was heading towards the end of the season at this stage and sad to see that snow line creeping up closer to us every day!
