While filming in Alaska during January 2012, Jeremy found this location and came up with the idea of transferring from the top walkway onto the wall that was facing a different direction. We didn't proceed with a session that day as we needed quite a bit of build time – it was the end of the trip and you have to be mentally prepared to try and tackle a feature this large.
We returned to Anchorage the following month and headed to the location immediately, as it was on the top of the spot list. The snow quality was good, there was plenty to work with, so the weather was in full cooperation and Jeremy was committed to making this shot happen.
After spending a couple of hours getting the feature ready, Jeremy did a few speed test runs, said he was ready, and then nailed the trick within a few attempts. In the end, effort and planning paid off with a beautiful snowboarding maneuver pulled off at a big and burly street spot.
