Sick Days: Salt Lake City, Utah— Orem Stepdown

Words and Photos: T. Bird

I live in Salt Lake City, Utah for a reason. It's the best place on earth to be a snowboard photographer. You can shoot street, pow and park all in one day, which makes it super efficient to get a lot of variety in your photography in just one winter. On these particular days, Jeremy Jones, Jake Welch and Pat Moore were filming for various projects (Pat and Jeremy, for Blueprint and Jake for Real Snow) so they hit me up to get a lens on 'em for a few sessions. What resulted were two of the heaviest days of shooting I've ever been a part of. These guys are modern day superheroes and what they can do on a snowboard is nearly incomprehensible, and until you see it in real life, it doesn't seem like it can be real. The following is a few shots from two of the sickest days I've ever shot. Full sequence of Jeremy and Jake below.
