This trip was the most fun shooting this year so far, done just a few weeks ago........June 16, 2013: The adventure starts on the far side of the lake in the background. You take a taxi boat across the lake, then begin hiking with all your gear. Scrambling up big ledges to get to the base of this peak. The 2 snowboarders in this photo shoot would climb up 2 different couloirs, then snowboard down, go do the other couloir and down again, after which we were all tired and had to run part of the way back to catch the last boat bake at the end of the day, the boat was leaving as we crested the last hill down to the dock....they came back...!!!! We made it, the day was so good. If this shot makes the snow line they are climbing look steep.....well it is very real, this shot is the second couloir which has a pitch of about 50-55 degrees. Extremely steep, and narrow making turns a bit tough. The lake back there sits at 10,000 feet elevation, the top of the peak at over 12,200 feet.
This is located on the far eastern edge of Yosemite National Park.
