Snowboarding at Bogus Basin near Boise, Idaho

I used to shoot a lot of snowboarding and skiing. From the late 80's until the late 90's skiing and snowboarding was a huge part of my life. I worked at ski hill and spent most of my non-work time riding and shooting photos in the backcountry between Vancouver and Pemberton. However as my life began to evolve more and more around the bike industry I also become a little burned out on snow, and in the late 90's I kind of abandoned snowboarding altogether.

Until yesterday the last time I'd taken a photo of anyone on a snowboard was with a Nikon F4 camera and Fuji Velvia film, over twenty years ago. I have to say I'm stoked to live so close to such a rad ski area, and to have a bunch of great riders to work with! This is just the beginning!
