The word is out on Peaked

Early ups at the Ghee with the weather looking questionable for shooting.  We decided to starting hiking to Peaked hoping for the best.  Get to the top of our lines and against all odds, it pops blue and is go time.  It turned out to be a great day of shooting with athletes lining the ridge and cameras scattered all over the south side of Fred’s.  Gary & Max Mackenzie, Dorian Densmore, Rachel Burks, Todd Ligare, Julian Carr, and myselft pretty much worked the north side of Peaked for everything we could.  Today was a perfect example of why we go for it when the weather is questionable.  Better to be up top ready than to be at the bottom when it pops.  Here is a clip from my first line of the day.  The landing was a bit firm and knocked the camera outta commish upon impact.
