SWEEPING THE CHIMNEY TO AN AFTERNOON CORN HARVEST

Sweeping the Chimney to an Afternoon Corn Harvest @squawalpine

Casey Cane skis the Chimney in Squaw Alpine in May this year.

This guy looks as though he had a lot of fun.

After watching the Squaw boys throwing down laps on The Chimney in the Palisades via social media on May 8th and 9th, he had to get there before the snow melted.

He did, and skied it a few times and looks as though he had a lot of fun.

On his 6th lap of the Chimney, he was met by patrol who said that would be his final Chimney line for the day.

NAH is a fantastic flip book ski animation created by Pepe Gay.

It took over 900 drawings to create the video - it's full of energy and perfectly captures the excitement of the sport.

The video has been selected as a Staff Pick on Vimeo and since it was released on 1st May, it has had over 22,000 views.

Film references of park and pipe, urban rails and freestyle antics were used to create the drawings.

The snowsports styles and antics of Borja Azurmendi, Brady Perron, Pepe Gay, Cam Riley and Nick Martini influenced the drawings.

Pepe Gay commented to PlanetSKI,  "I started to draw on december and made the final cut on march. However I've been working also on other animation projects, and also been busy with film school work! So I wasn't full time on it."
