Winter 2012 Update

January 30, 2012

Sorry for the lack of posts this winter.  I thought I’d share a few of my favorite pics thus far from Whistler and Mica.  And if you’re wondering (and I’m sure you are) there will be another Mica video soon.  Have to edit a bunch of footage.  We shot the whole trip mainly on Contour+ and Contour Roam.  Not sure how it will turn out but should be pretty good.


These cats are ready. Or is that a bear? Or golden retriever?

Courtney looking good!


Kelowna to Mica in style

There are so many features to play with at Mica it's unreal.

Powder in and around my mouth area.

George is 6'5". No big deal.

Mica Heli Ski 2011 Movie

March 16, 2011

I finally finished the 2011 Mica movie.  Turns out iMovie has a big issue with maintaining the audio throughout a project when you use custom slow motion or custom fast motion on clips.  This was a very annoying problem to have to deal with after I thought I was finished.  Hopefully Apple has fixed this problem in newer versions of iMovie.  If you want to know more about the problem and how to avoid it or what I did as a workaround then send me an email or a comment and I can fill you in.  If not, then just watch it.

Hope you like the movie.  It was a lot of fun to make.  Be sure to click the “HD” and “full screen” buttons before you watch.

Japan Earthquake

March 14, 2011

Sorry for the delay in posting.  It’s been a little crazy over here.  We were sitting on a plane at the Tokyo, Narita airport waiting to fly to Sapporo to ski in Niseko on the north island of Japan when the earthquake hit.  We were very lucky to be on the plane.  Only a couple of hours earlier we would have been in the bus from Hakuba to the airport.  It felt like a pretty significant quake even sitting in the plane.  They closed and evacuated the airport so we were stuck in the plan on the runway for 5 hours until they finally let us fly.  We were VERY lucky to get out of Tokyo.  After an unplanned night in Sapporo we got to a very warm Niseko.  With all that is happening and the rain in Niseko we decided to cut our trip short and head back home.  We wanted to avoid Tokyo airports at all costs so we have 24 hours in Seoul before we catch a direct flight to Seattle.

Here are some picture from the last few days.

Airport sushi.  A great idea if you are in Japan.  Not such a good idea if you are in Pittsburg

I took this about 20 minutes after the big one.  It went from sunny to rainy and cloudy.
