It has been a groundbreaking summer for the bike scene in Snowmass, as the new Valhalla trail officially opened to the public. Here are riders Joey Schusler, Sam Stevens, Dustin Belcher and Matt Swenson showing us how it’s done in Bike Snowmass.
More about Valhalla: Designed and built by Gravity Logic, Valhalla features 2.75 miles of freeride terrain and more than 1,400 feet of vertical drop. This trail begins at the top of the Elk Camp Gondola and descends down to Snowmass Base Village featuring berms, jumps, bridges, table tops, a wall ride, drop zone and a fruit bowl.

Play full screen so you can count the meteors! Shot in Joshua Tree National Park and the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest during the Perseid meteor shower. Features ancient trees, lightning, rainbows, meteors, the Milky Way, and lots of stars. Enjoy!
Ascendance is a tribute to nature's unpredictable power and beauty. I went out to film the Perseid meteor shower but I encountered so much more. When you are out there, you never know for sure what nature will bring. Always be ready for a magical experience. :)
