Mountain Bike Shoot
Today will be one that will be remembered forever and it’ll go into Jackson Hole history. It’ll probably be a long time before another bike launches into Corbett school. I mean the mountain-bike shoot was an idea that we came up with we wanted to do something really wild. I just felt like there was a huge accomplishment in that and then other people are stoked on what you’re doing that’s that’s huge you know you don’t get a ton of days where things go right and you pull something off like this so it was very special that’s the first shot was perfect.
Today will be one that will be remembered forever and it’ll go into Jackson all history and it’ll probably be a long time before another bike launches into Corbett school I mean the mountain-bike shoot was an idea that we came up with we wanted to do something really wild so we chose Corbett’s couloir which is an iconic ski run at Jackson Hole it’s probably one of the most iconic ski runs in the world so we invited KC Brown and cam McCaul to come to Jackson and to try and drop into it on mountain bikes when you start to come up with the camera plan for shooting Corbett’s and capturing it the GSS is the ultimate weapon the GSS is the most advanced camera stabilization system in the world we decided to mount the GSS to the tram which were able to capture a perspective that no one’s really ever seen before in the past I’d heard of Corvettes but it’s gnarly for being in balance in a ski area is crazy need to just like rip it and then there’s no controlling the speaker brakes are gonna do anything nope yeah it’s gonna be challenging there’s gonna be a lot of unknown it might not succeed definitely a unique type of person that would want to try and do something like that wears a Velcro on a circular yeah I’m buckled into a harness right now we’ve got a rope hopefully anchored to something plan was to just ride something on snow to feel how it worked and I guess that something is gonna be Corbett screw our cam yup I think it’s the probably the first mountain bike the spinning torvik forever I would imagine all right I’m gonna take the rope off the bike you got a clip into your bike what in the world am i doing haha the guinea pig here how in the world am I gonna get off of this thing holy balls look this is so sketch there’s gonna be no stopping three two one [Music] [Laughter] it was late in the spring so worried about the tire sinking in so that’s why we had salt as the backup and we slip a lane and salted and they slip another lane and not salt and then those guys would really test the snow and see which what was working bass you know there’s a lotta sorta is this even gonna work going on yesterday it was pretty amazing to get up there today and just he cam and Casey get into their zones what do you think about making this more of a slope so you’re already kind of on that angle yeah when you hit it that’s a good idea just the physics of how it’s all gonna work getting all the angles lined up there best put a lot on the line oh yeah the vision is coming alive here that’s still intimidating it’s different than anything ever so it’s definitely ya gotta have nose for it so this is always the hardest part right here we’re just like it was insane its room ever shooting the shotgun didn’t complete disbelief that it had worked and that it was happening Oh freaking work I can’t believe freaking work you know it allowed us to get a shot in Corbett’s that I had never seen in the history of people filming Kovac school law which runs very deep that’s the fastest I have ever been on a bike she definitely went for it she sent Corbett’s bigger than cam and was just nuking even though like crashing at the bottom of it it was inevitable I just felt like there was a huge accomplishment in that and then other people are stoked on what you’re doing that’s that’s huge you know you don’t get a ton of days where things go right and you pull something off like this so it was very special that’s the first shot was perfect all the rock in there are yeah
