Film Fest

"It is hard to capture the immense scale of big mountains, and in Petersburg they are bigger than ever: Peaks rise thousands of feet straight out of glacial flows, snow sticks in nooks and crannies, and everything seems to be made of rock and ice. Tucked away in the shadows of this photo of Mt. Burkett we found a ridable spine wall that was steep and techy. This was one of my favorite moments on the trip. It was our last day in the mountains, and the crew had been through a lot. Photographers were firing off landscapes and coercing athletes to pose for head shots. Cinematographers were equally trigger-happy -- in ten minutes, over 200 feet of film had been shot."
