THE SHERIDAN SESSIONS
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.
