Simon Dumont Breaks the Halfpipe at Squaw Valley.
In the mind of Simon Dumont an idea has been germinating for about 6 years and finally today it came to fruition and completion. With the support of Red Bull, Snow Park Technologies and Squaw Valley this halfpipe was beyond even what those involved had imagined. Obviously, you'll be seeing a lot of coverage in Freeskier and in Poorboyz Productions' next movie over the next few months.
In the meantime, here are a few teaser shots to whet your appetite. Special thanks go out to Simon for allowing us to shoot and to everyone involved from Red Bull, Snow Park Technologies, Squaw and Poorboyz.
