THE SHERI­DAN SES­SIONS

SKI - - FOCUS -

What do you do when you’re on a Points North Heli trip in the Chugach Moun­tains of AK, and gust­ing winds keep you from fly­ing? You turn nearby Sheri­dan Glacier into your own per­sonal ter­rain park. “It was blow­ing 90 mph, so we de­cided to go out to the glacier, take out the spring skis, and ses­sion it like a skatepark,” says pho­tog­ra­pher Richard Hall­man. War­ren Miller Entertainment ath­lete Jim Ryan hap­pily obliged. Hall­man wedged him­self into this crevasse to cap­ture Ryan send­ing it over PNH guide Tino Vil­lanueva ice-climb­ing below. “It was a dif­fi­cult shot for [WME cin­e­matog­ra­pher] Tom Day to get, even in slow mo­tion, be­cause Jim’s only in view for a few sec­onds,” says Hall­man. “I hope it makes it into the film.” So do we. War­ren Miller Entertainment’s 69th film, Face of Win­ter, is com­ing soon to a theater near you.
