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.
Saturday was fun - and soooo cool to see everyone again; Sigi, Chris, Sascha, Lori, Hugo, Babtiste, and the reps from the US, Marc & Jesse and a lot of others in the Kastle Familia!
It's been a short, but sweet visit here in Austria, and Hugo and I are now getting ready for a few hours of sleep before getting up at 4:30 am to head to the airport and fly back home. Thanks to awesome Simon who's picking us up early! You rock!
Hugo Harrisson is a three-time IFSA World Tour Champion and a perennial fixture in both Warren Miller and MSP films. If you have never seen Hugo’s film segments… well…his skiing speaks for itself.
We’re stoked for the premiere of Wintervention; the trailer looks great. What can you tell us about your segment?
Hi Everyone, I have been up here in Girdwood, Alaska for the last two weeks filming for next fall's Warren Miller movie and it has been a bit of a roller-coaster ride. We had some good film days to start the trip off but then got shut down by weather for 5 days in a row. Fortunately luck was on our side and Mother Nature kind as we just absolutely killed it yesterday out in the Chugach Mountains with some perfect snow and steep lines. Stian Hagen and I are the skiers, Chris Patterson the cine guy, and Tom Evans the photographer.

PORTILLO, Chile — With every step I kick in, another 7 inches of elevation is gained. In 14,000 inches, I will reach my final destination somewhere above 12,000 feet. Eventually, the rhythm of kicking my ski boots into the side of the mountain will become almost hypnotic, and I will find myself daydreaming about events of the past.
