2011 Level 1 After Dark Segment Released via epictv.com

This is my 2011 Level 1 segment from the film “After Dark”. The 2011 winter marked a fresh ACL and true test of my ability to recover from the injury that left me couch side for a couple months in the Spring of 2010. Freedle Coty and I decided to incorporate some establishment to run parallel with my first release of my Pro Model ski with 4FRNT the YLE. The first version of the YLE was given native american inspired art and themed with Montana flavor, hence the native theme that runs throughout the segment. Also, my good friend Taylor Brown composed the music with his brother Guthery. The song is a cover from the Allman Brothers “Midnight Rider”.

Filming and Editing: Freedle Coty
Music: Taylor and Guthrie Brown “Midnight Rider”

The YLESKI

YLESKIad4

 

Bellow is a photo Gallery from Jordan Harper of Saga Outerwear.  Our month in the Montana backcountry has come to a wrap.  Darren Rayner has made the long pilgrimage back to Vancouver and I’m currently resting my sore bones in the Big Sky area. The action  has been captured and an edit awaits our creative push.  The very first YLESKI edit is sure to be a big one, and I for one can’t wait to share it with the online community.

Moving forward I’ll be taking a fresh perspective on how I produce and release media.  Similar to the way music albums are produced, I’m reserving the right to release content when I feel fit.  We film when the time is right and release when we have the quality and quantity we need. No deadlines, no restrictions, or parameters to work within… just creative, technical, and big skiing, with a fresh perspective.  This is the premise behind YLESKI.

New Labor

So we are in Montana at the moment. Darren Rayner and I have teamed up to put together the initial YLESKI edit for release this winter. With assistance from both 4frnt and Saga athletes (Thayne Rich, Shay Lee), Austin Ramaley, and Jordan Harper we’ve been hammering. It’s been cold, and snowing. With a couple days of sun we braved the sub zero temps and took advantage. I will be posting more soon on our progress with the project. Stay tuned!

Bye bye Bible Belt

So I’ve been in Utah for the month of January. Doing some filming for the upcoming 4frnt film “Elements”, and catching some rare January sunshine park riding due to our extensive high pressure period. It’s been good to sleep in my own bed and enjoy the amenities of SLC.

Dale Talkington is good. Catching up with the next generation at PC. Impressive park ninjas.

Oh and I got into a pretty sweet contest thanks to stuff like this. I’m taking off this week to chase some powder up north, and start on a mid season YLESKI edit… It’s been real Utah see ya!
