Spending the week with director Rob Sullivan based in London. We had three days with Piper and Dan of the Snowmass Ski Patroll shooting all the footage needed for a 6 min segment. It was a fun filled week running through avalanche drills, and different shots. It surly is one of the neatest projects we have been a part of and can not wait to see the segment on TV late this year or early 2017!
