Shred Edit – Jacob O’Connor
2014/2015 was a season of progression for me. Having the dream ski-bum-work-schedule allowed me to do a lot of travel throughout the winter and spring. Taos, NM, Grizzly Gulch and Snowbird, Telluride and Crested Butte, multiple trips to Jackson Hole, Rocky Mountain and Grand Teton National Parks were among the season highlights.
When I wasn’t on the road I was based in Aspen, CO. Located in the heart of the Elk Mountains, Aspen is surrounded by a myriad of BC zones. For the first time I began to delve into some of the endless terrain that surrounds my small hometown.
Once spring hit and avalanche conditions improved I was able to ski Cathedral Peak and Ski Hayden Peak along with other zones around Larkspur Mtn. and Independence Pass. My recent explorations into the Elk Mtns. are just a fraction of whats out there but, I look forward to a life of exploring this rugged terrain.
The majority of footage in this movie was shot in the Elks.
