Proof that being a liftie at Alta does not suck

May 28th, 2013 by

Jarrett Smith and Matt Hundhammer spent the winter of 2012-2013 working as lifties at Alta Ski Area and shredding its world famous terrain and the surrounding peaks of Little Cottonwood Canyon. Unfortunately, both of their seasons ended abruptly in March thanks to a pair of torn ACLs, but the crew at Frothing Grommets Productions put together this banger edit of their pre-injury footage for your entertainment.

“Frothing Grommets Productions presents Jarrett Smith and Matt Hundhammer’s “Weak in the Knees” edit, showcasing some fun shots of the boy’s 2012-13 season spent working for Alta Ski Lifts and living amidst the snowy peaks and ridges of Little Cottonwood Canyon. In March, both Jarrett and Matt tore their ACLs within a week of each other, ending the duos season and shooting their spring and summer plans. Nevertheless, the grommets have been hard at work doing physical therapy and plan on returning to the Wasatch next season to praise Jah Üllr and enjoy some more tasty lines.”
