GETTING EXCITED ABOUT WINTER
Snowbasin Resort has been using this short video to advertise the sale of its 2017-18 season passes, so I thought I'd post it again to help others visualize what we're all looking forward to in the relatively near future here in Northern Utah. I put this edit together shortly after shooting video over the course of two days last season. Our original intent was to create b-roll of the lodges with gorgeous vistas of cliffs and mountain tops caked in white, as well as happy, smiling, mellow family lifestyle shots. What ended up happening was that it did nothing but snow and snow and snow more. We rolled with the punches (if getting tons of wonderful powder can be considered a "punch"), accepted that Mother Nature wasn't going along with our plans, and we changed our agenda and to shot run after run of skiers and boarders enjoying the powder with free refills. When shooting outdoors you're always at the mercy of the weather, but sometimes it surprises you with conditions that are even better than you could have hoped for.
