I spent eight days in the Engadin Valley in the Swiss Alps with two different crews. One crew was after night time powder shots and the other just wanted to go riding and maybe shoot something. This shot was obviously with the second crew!
Iker Fenandez and Michi Albin last shot together over 10 years ago, so it was really nice to shoot with them in Michi's back yard.
The snow was pretty windblown up high so we started looking around for pockets of soft snow on the back of a ridge. We found a couple of good spots, but I talked the boys into building this one as the background was just so amazing. I really wanted to shoot backlit so the snow trail would light up.
They both jumped three times until Michi's binding broke on a hard landing. Iker has such a lazy style and you can see he's just enjoying himself up there. This is a very classic snowboarding image, the trick is timeless, the style gold and the landscape beautiful!
