This spot in particular was something we saw on the way to shoot another feature. We drove by the parking lot several times, and each day the parking lot was packed full of people. Not ideal for what we wanted to do, so we really had to plan to shoot it at the end of the day, so less people were around.
Our guide was not optimistic about shooting this location, as we were sure to get kicked out. After sessioning a spot just around the corner, we decided to give the feature a quick look to see if anyone was there. It was towards the end of the day, and luckily the parking lot was completely clear!
The crew made quick work of placing snow in the landing and prepping the in run. Just as the sun was going down we nailed this shot, cleaned up the spot, and no one knew we had even been there. Quick hit and run street spots are sometimes like getting away with burglary. It's so rewarding when you get the shot, and get out without any hassle, and without anyone knowing.
