Last week before I gave up on winter Coach Coates and I met at Bear Mt to shoot a few end of the season pic's with the Killington Mountain School Snowboard Team. Plan was to shoot the guys taking park runs seeing that it was perfectly sunny and the snow soft. Well, like other shoots with the team this winter, two out of the three guys managed to get hurt. Before I even met up with the team, Max managed to sail off the tube feature in the park and crush his ribs. Then after a few warm-up runs Chris threw down his rodeo 5 he had been sticking all week - problem was he spun a rodeo 7-something and ended up on his head, which made him a little loopy and finished his afternoon. Then there is Eddie. Eddie is the rider that manages to keep the waxy side down and not crush himself while shooting. This particular day Eddie had a personal best - landing his first grabbed 3. Fun to watch - the grabbed 3 that is - not the crushing.
Chris was throwing down some big 7's all day.

Eddie's first grabbed 3 and getting it a little sideways for fun.
Still the sweetest move going.

Chris not looking so good at this point - the rodeo 5 is now looking like a rodeo 7 and then some.
