Day 4 of riding in Russia and we finally got a break, it's been super warm and sketchy avalanche conditions, things got better and we were allowed to hike to this spot with a guide. It was a bit nervous for me, my first time hiking that far out. But we got some good shots and had a great ride down.

Glad to see you made it okay. That has got to be a fun shoot. Looks like wonderful conditions, for the moment. What's the elevations there?

Wow those mountains look amazing. Did you get to board at all there in Russia? That would be so hard to see all that perfect snow/mountain and not get to ride. Unless of course its as steep as it looks in which case it might be too gnarly to be tempting.

Yeah, i got to go down after filming, I Had two runs during the trip that rank in the top 10 of my life. I felt pretty lucky to be apart of it. The elevation at that peak was about 2500 meters.

If you go to Russia again and want to know a few phrases here is how to do it.

"Previet" = hello (pray-vee-ette)

"Mena zavut" = my name is (main-ya za-voot)

"Kac Vac Zavut" = what is your name (cock vock za-voot)
