Here's a short video I just put together from the Bighorns here in Wyoming, USA. It was this last weekend. It’s a 3 minute Vimeo movie. There's some big air, and some nice lines with a dab of speed wing soaring.

We weren't sure if there'd even be snow because everyone was backing out of the weekend. Wayne and Pascal texted at 11pm Friday night before for a 5am start Saturday. I was digging my snowkiting crap out of the closet until 3 am.

We hit the road to get a beautiful sunset session. The funny part is how EPIC kiting can make 0-8" of snow. We knew the last storm blew N and NW so we had hopes for some wind loading on the SSE slope. Ultimately I like to think that it wasn’t pure luck and there was some calculation somewhere.

We used a Canon 60d DSLR camera and a GoPro2 for all the shots. I shot in 720 at 60fps even though vimeo uses 30fps. I’ve been practicing this summer and was really excited to test things out on the snow.

Anyways, I hope you like it and I hope they just get better from here. I’d appreciate a little feedback as well.
