Today, we present the cover of our 2012 November issue (Volume 15.3). We extend congratulations to Parker White; this marks the first time Parker has been featured on the cover of FREESKIER. The November issue is now available on newsstands.
This photograph was taken by Bryn Hughes in the Coast Mountains, in Pemberton, BC while on a film trip with Level 1 Productions. Hughes says about the photo, “Parker had been looking for and wanting to hit natural features all week. Over the radio he said he had found something legit. I headed over on my 2011 Arctic Cat roosting all over cinematographer Kyle Decker and his lumpy Ski Doo that was stuck at the bottom of a small hill. While Kyle was trying to get to the zone we were in, Parker and I tandemed up to the top of this line. It was a bit of a sketchy entrance to the line, and super steep, so once he committed there was no turning back. The spot I shot from shows most of the take off and landing, which is important, but I wanted to make sure he was framed above the background peaks. Once I saw the sluff pouring off, I knew the shot was going to work. Parker has a super smooth style, combining that with a sick backdrop and feature made the shot.”
