Here is the second sunrise I shot of Mt. Bachelor in 2022 and the first day Summit chair opened. I have been riding this resort since 1985...never in my wildest dreams did I think I would be doing what I do now for a living way back when I was nine years old. Countless memories have been created on this dormant volcano. From falling off a chairlift at 10 years old and putting a hole in my head to teaching my two kids how to snowboard to learning my first 360s to shooting hundreds of hours of video and thousands of photos, this piece of public land has helped shape who I am today. Grateful.
I love the color in this image as well as the mind surfing possibilities it provides. On this day I was able to grab first chair of the first day of Summit. Here's to a New Year with new possibilities of positivity.
