Across The Globe

Behind the Scenes

Explanation

Explanation

We were down in Chile for a shoot with Spyder and Warren Miller. It was a bad snow year down there, to say the least, so we came up with a plan to work around the problem.

So I think it’s maybe time that I maybe explain something from an earlier post, maybe. I put up a few pics as “previews” for what might be ahead on my blog. I got a few questions about the one where I am hanging above a pool. It’s a fish eye lens, shot from the front seat of a helicopter. (See more behind-the-scenes photos from the trip here.)

Colby West in Breckenridge Shooting for 62nd Film

Here are some pictures from the weekend. I was filming my segment for Warren Miller and trying to get some training in...

STILL DUMPING!!

Ugh, this is so frustrating. Usually snow is awesomely cool! But right now I want to do my tricks and it’s dumping in Breck. Maybe I just go down to Denver and see the sites to get my mind off of Dew Tour.

Here's a picture from the weekend. I was filming my segment for Warren Miller Entertainment and trying to get some training in, but as you can see, the weather wasn’t so hot for shooting or jumping. Too flat.

Portillo, Chile

This shoot marked the start of filming for the 2011 Warren Miller film and we had a truly all star cast of skiers to work with for the segment.

Four hours after getting back from a shoot in PA it was back to the airport to leave for a shoot in Portillo, Chile. The ski resort of Portillo is located about 3 hours drive northwest of Santiago, right near the Argentinean border. This shoot marked the start of filming for the 2011 Warren Miller film and we had a truly all star cast of skiers to work with for the segment. (Daron Ralves, Julia Mancuso, Tommy Moe, Chris Davenport, Julien Carr, Jess McMillan and Colby West to name a few.)
