Dog Sledding

Dog Sledding

On the last day of the Outdoor Retail Expo Mike, our camera guy, and I went out to Oakley Utah to go dogsledding. We had no idea what the terrain was going to be like or what to expect. Once there we met up with the owner of the tours and got our camera gear setup as he got the dogs ready. The dogs were extremely anxious to start, and began howling in the agony of having to wait any longer. As soon as we were all ready the dogs took off with Mike in the sled and the guide mushing while I was filming from a different angle on a snowmobile. The pure joy on the dogs faces was amazing and when we slowed down for other snowmobilers they quickly grew inpatient, wanting to get back up to full speed. The views were amazing making us soon forget about everything else. I tried to imagine what the area would be like in the summer and as I painted the picture in my head I knew I would want to come back here later in the year. After about an hour of riding we stopped to set up the drone so that we could get an aerial view of the dogsledding. We were able to film for about half an hour before the clouds started rolling in and blocked out the sun. Immediately the temperature dropped twenty degrees Fahrenheit. It quickly became a mild white out as we headed back, although the dogs did not seem to mind at all.

Next, we began our trip back to Salt Lake City and came across an old diner so Mike and I decided to check it out. As soon as you walk into the diner you feel as if you went through a time machine. Created in the 1930s and restored only a few years ago, this place was full of history, and amazing stories. To make matters even better the food was just as amazing as the diner itself. After a quick blast from the past Mike and I were headed on to our next adventure.

Dirt Biking

Dirt Biking
Best known for it’s incredible red landscape, MOAB is just 4 hours from Salt Lake City. We went out there after showing off our gear at Outdoor Retailer, thinking it would be nice to get some fresh air. We got a couple of dirt bikes and quads and spent the day riding around the frozen desert. Temperatures were just below freezing but we still got to bust out the drone and get some amazing shots of the landscape.

Urban Riding

Urban Riding

One of the days the team was riding out in Park City we started talking to a local that said he and his friends did a lot of urban riding around downtown. Seeing a great opportunity for both a photoshoot and to have a great time we jumped on the chance. A few days later we headed back up to Park City to meet our new local friends around nine o’clock at night. They took us to a large hill that we had to hike up to get to the spot we would be sessioning. It was a short hike and well worth it once we reached the top. The view from the top was absolutely gorgeous, as we could overlook all of Park City shining in the darkness.

There was already a jump, runway, and snow bridge over a gully set up when we got there. Our team set up the lights while some of the locals showed our riders where we would be dropping in from and gave the low down on the jump and landing conditions. Once our camera crew was set up, we cracked open a few beers, started blasting music and dropping in. The runway was pretty sketchy at first since all the focus is on trying to get across the snow bridge that was barely visible. As soon as you made it across the bridge the begging of the jump was staring you right in the face so you had switch focus extremely fast. After the first drop-in the nerves started to go away and we all just relaxed and cheered each other on as each other started to throw down. It was definitely one of the best night urban riding sessions we have had and got to meet some great people along the way.
