Rattlesnake, First Descent

Professional snowboarder Mitch Tölderer in the middle of a first descent while filming for the current Warren Miller Entertainment movie, 'Flow State'. It took Mitch about 40 minutes to find his entry point, which to him was a blind entry guided by myself and cinematographer Tom Day. It was a true 'no fall zone' with extreme consequences. Mitch is such a strong rider, he made the impossible look easy. It was thanks to a huge winter in the Cugach Mountains that made this line possible. It may never be ridden again...
