This shot was taken on a six-hour ski tour in the Sunnmre Alps on the Norwegian western coast. We had been up in the alpine and were on route down when Chris Rubens found this perfect wind drift. He hit it naturally once and did a 360, but popped out bigger than he expected. He went back up and stepped it out and did a 7 -- all of this with low-tech ski touring bindings. Impressive. -- Mattias Fredriksson
