I have been too busy working, traveling, and living life to sit down and go through my GoPro footage from this past spring in Kazakhstan until recently. All of the locations are in the Tien Shan mountains outside of Almaty, and mostly in the backcountry around Chimbulak. Lines include “Looks Can Be Deceiving,” “Option #1,” and “The Big Option,” which is the most likely first descent of the three, but I’m not sure. There’s also some goofing around during the closing days of Chimbulak.
If I don’t get deported next month, summer ski season looks to be great!
