This past Saturday I got a chance to go to the Dew Tour event at Killington. It ran from Friday through Sunday, but Sunday was really cold and I got some nice shots on Saturday.
I got a chance to see the very end of the Men’s Snowboard Superpipe final, the prelims of the men’s Slopestyle Ski comp and the Finals of the Men’s Ski Superpipe, which was after dark and totally lit up. I got a media pass which allowed me to be right at the bottom of the half pipe and pretty much anywhere on the slopestyle course.
I watch a LOT of ski movies, but it’s always so much more impressive to see it person. Man, these guys were hucking!
Some of these pics are good shots, some I just thought were interesting as we can see how by stopping time, a graceful feat of amazing acrobatics can seem to be a complete torquing of the body.
