This Avalanche Dog “Digs” You

This is some video of my my friend Brendan Mcgraw and his Golden Retriever Coomba. I have had the pleasure of knowing Coomba since he was 6 weeks old, he is a funny little guy with a huge personality. Coomba is a ski patrol avalanche dog in training. This video was shot at the end of Coomba’s first season on the mountain, taken shortly before Coomba’s 1st birthday. So as you can see, he is pretty much going to be a bad ass. Coomba and Brendan have been training for their upcoming test, which if they pass Coomba will officially be a Ski Patrol rescue dog, and earn his cross.

Big Snow @ Heavenly 01/21/10

Another foot of snow fell last night here in Tahoe, and it’s still dumping. Storms this week have produced high winds along the ridges, keeping the upper mountain closed. Today is one of the first days the entire mountain is open. The temperatures have been very cold, which in turn has dropped some really light snow. Dane Henry and myself headed out to grab some shots and make some turns. We made first tracks in Mott Canyon, dropping Susanne’s Saddle and North 40. The snow is amazing, some of the lightest I have skied in a while. Dane and I took turns filming each other and a couple of friends. Check out the edit from today.

Zepyhr Cove Promo Spot

This is a promo I shot and Edited for Zephyr Cove Resort, located on the east shore of Lake Tahoe, NV. This promo will be featured on Zephyr Cove’s website, and will also air on the TV show “Another Heavenly Morning”. I had a great day out shooting with the shows Senior Producer Fred Wymore. We got to go on a snowmobile ride to the “bench” which over looks the entire east shore of Lake Tahoe. This is a really cool vantage point, it really shows how long the lake is. After the snowmobile tour, Fred and I cruised around the resort and shot the MS Dixie.
