I shot this photo of Mikkel at the end of the day during a week long stretch of sunny days in Whistler, BC. The crew was motivated so we didn't stop till the sun dropped.

Huge claims. Even with Travis Rice, John Jackson, and Mark Landvik on the trip, photographer Scott Serfas came back from a month shooting in Alaska's remote Tordrillo Range for Rice's forthcoming film, Flight, claiming it like a freshman after his first college kegger. Everything was the "craziest, biggest, sickest, heaviest ever..." The thing is, Serfas ain't no freshman, he's more of a "Frank The Tank" in snowboard media, He's been here for years. He's seen and shot it all and yet we could only scratch our heads at his giddy e-mails, claiming that "this trip was the best snowboarding trip in history." Too bad they couldn't smuggle a writer along on the trip. We were stuck with a secondhand account from our key photographer with a vocabulary limited to just three adjectives: best, biggest, and greatest.
