We haven't been able to fly now for about 5 days and as I mentioned, our last day out there we had trouble finding good snow. It's now been snowing non stop here since that day but the problem is its been mostly dense snow falling and that combined with the cold snow already out there might make up a sketchy layer. We just have to feel it out once we are out there and of course keep it as safe as possible. Our last few days here were spent checking out Haines and trying to get the boys some good wildlife shots.
Well we had another couple days flying here. Our first day we only had time for one line each but it was probably my most fun line of the trip so far. I guess that's how it goes here, most days by the time the media gets set up and we scope our line there's only really time for a couple heli drops. The following day we went out late in the afternoon to try ride the west facing stuff and we had real trouble finding any good snow and Roly took a solid tumble. He's all good though.
Just checking in to let you know we've arrived in Haines Alaska. We caught the ferry from Juneau and even the ferry ride was awesome. The mountains are completely insane here, like New Zealand but so much bigger and so dam steep! We checked into our condo which was built in 1904, It's old but so cosy with a lot of character and of course some of the best views in the world. When we arrived we got our safety briefing and met our guide for the next couple weeks. Everyone is saying we came at the right time.
Last Friday was the Melbourne premiere of our new movie 'Pretty Wise' and what an awesome turn out. It definitely wasn't an easy season for us so it was a huge surprise and pleasure to be sharing the opening part of the movie with my good mate Robbie Walker. Big thank you to all the sponsors and Transfer magazine for making this night happen.
