Red Rock and Ripstop

Ozone 2009 American Desert Photo Shoot:

Matt Gerdes from The Ozone Team flew into Salt Lake with six brand new gliders from the 09 product line and told us we had 10 days to get as many different pictures as possible. With Loren Cox as the main Photographer and John James doing both video and pictures, Carson, Matt, and I were off to the races. It was a busy 10 days going as far north as Bear Lake on the Idaho/Utah border, south all the way into Arizona, and back to Salt Lake in a big loop. We made the most of the unpredictable fall weather and ended up with some incredible shots and an adventure not soon forgotten. Here's the goods:

December is here

Its already december and we are still waiting on snow in the Wasatch. Carson and I just got back from an Ozone photo shoot all over the south west. We should have an edit up by the end of the week for that, I will post it here as soon as I get it. Also Carson is working on a new ground rush foot launching edit that should be up soon. Here is a video that Karl Stezlick from Jackson Hole put together on a trip down to the point. Thanks Karl.

The summer season is slowly coming to an end and we are starting to see more and more snow on the peaks. Im starting to shift gears from paragliding to speed riding anxiously awaiting enough snow. I have mixed feelings about it, I already miss summer but it is going to be a great season and I can't wait. This slideshow has a few shots from Chris Lezzoni and a bunch from Loren Cox. Loren just got a new Nikon D90 and is an incredible photographer. More to come.

Lone Peak Area

Chris Simpson and I decided to see how far up lone peak we could get. the run turned out to be 3500 vertical feet and it took us five hours of skinning to get to the launch. The first pic is of me pointing at the North Side at the Point of the Mountain Flight Park where we do both foot and ski launched instruction.

The Canyons

These are some pictures of dutchess draw which is a backcountry run with gate access from The Canyons Mountain Resort the majority of our on-snow instruction happens here. Thanks to Michael Tornichia and Derek Palmer for the Photos
