Last winter freeskier Bobby Brown teamed up with famed follow cam filmer Matt Cook–AKA "Ski Chef"–to film a flowy top-to-bottom park line down Mammoth Mountain entirely in one take. Brown claimed it was one of the most difficult film projects he's ever undertaken, just because of all the variables. Everything had to go perfect, from the jumps they had built to the wind, Matt keeping up with Bobby, and then Bobby actually landing all the tricks. Imagine linking together a run of tricks from
