As part of my trip to Peisey courtesy of Bura Snow I took Dale along to learn how to snowboard and grab some downhill skating shots for Never Summer UK. The roads in the alps are well known for being steep with endless switchback corners – perfect for longboarding. On top of that there is a backdrop of snow capped mountains. I love spring in the mountains – it is typically warm and sunny in the valley then you just need to gain elevation to hit the snowline and it is winter again.
We spent some time scouting locations, hiking and driving around. We were looking for the right road surface, with the right back drops, and avoiding blind corners. It sounds easier than it is. The next step is to find multiple locations so all the shots dont look the same. In the end we found a handful of good spots.
