Take in some inspiration and then get outside to create your own field of vision.

The view from above. During an epic session in Southeast Alaska we got some of the craziest shots ever with the gssc520. You’ll see more of this insane scenery in the fall when we premiere our new films: Almost Ablaze and Jeremy Jones’ Higher. Photo by @tgrtoddjones.
This shot is from on the way to shred Canale Enfuaca aka Couloir Ablaze, a potentially unskied couloir in Sella Nevea, Italy. Holy shit. Photo by @colterjh.
There’s plenty of pow when you’re the only people for miles. This is from our film, Jeremy Jones’ Further, which is out now for your viewing pleasure.
Here we are busting out the GSS for our movie Almost Ablaze. It’s amazing how such a small gimbal can produce such epic shots. Photo by @tgrtoddjones.

Testimonies began last week in Eagle County, Colorado, regarding the avalanche death of 13-year-old Taft Conlin on January 22, 2012 at Vail Ski Resort. Conlin was killed in an in-bounds slide near the Upper Gate of Prima Cornice while skiing with 3 friends. He did not appear to be carrying any avalanche safety gear when he was caught. Conlin’s parents, Louise H. Ingalls and Steve Conlin, are suing Vail as a “direct and proximal result” of Vail’s negligence that resulted in their son’s
This weekend, the ski community was devastated by news that Jackson’s Bryce Newcomb lost his battle with a traumatic brain injury. Newcomb was involved in a cornice collapse outside the Jackson Hole Resort's boundary in late March. For anyone who knew Newcomb, one thing always stood out: his absolutely infectious energy both on and off the mountain. He truly lived by the motto of “SEND IT,” spreading his sense of humor and stoke and convincing all those who rode with him that anything was
— D.L. Three years into my quest to find a copy of Dolores LaChapelle’s , I was finally on the cusp of unearthing the elusive tome.
