Red Bull Ultra Natural 2013

Year two for me at one of Red Bull’s premier winter events. Once again the riding was next level in nice pow conditions. Glad to have the switch up from last years camera position at the top to a mid mountain action shot on a 42x long lens. Produced by Red Bull and Brain Farm Cinema. Curt Morgan, Director
