Pepe Gay WCS 8 Edit

Spanish filmer/director/editor Pepe Gay is on a roll this winter. Pepe's edits have been catching the attention of all the right people this winter, but when you have talent like Pepe does and you're filming Luka and Noah, good things are inevitably going to happen. This month Pepe was in Oregon for the West Coast Session, here's his edit.
Progression is all about timing and environment. Build the biggest and best jump in North America at the end of the season when the world's best freeski pros have had a season to warm up. Add a relaxed, loose atmosphere and some soft snow conditions and then sit back and watch progression happen.

At the start of May Amplid’s Iberian Cartel; consisting of Pako, Luka and Noah, packed their things and headed out to the West Coast Sessions at Timberline resort, Oregon. All Noah had to show for this trip of a lifetime was an I <3 Oregon T-shirt and this lousy shot by Ethan Stone of him [...]

This is the first-ever “West Coast Session Day 5″ post because we’ve never done five days of Sessioning before. This year thanks to our wonderful hosts Timberline and Windell’s Camp as well as our other sponsors, we were able to session an incredible variety of features over the past five days, and today we managed [...]

Hood’s excellent freestyle and natural terrain for five days, kicking off the spring season at [...]
On Wednesday morning we prepared for what was to be a climactic final day to close out WCS5. The sun was gleaming brilliantly off the rolling slopes of Mt. Hood as we arrived at Timberline, illuminating the huge mound of snow up on the Palmer snowfield that had become the WCS 5 money booter. The [...]

West Coast Session 5 Day 4

All too quickly, Day Four of this year’s West Coast Session arrived last Wednesday. It seems like every year it goes by faster. Maybe next year we’ll go for a week! The day before, we sessioned just a little bit of the unbelievably awesome Windell’s campus. No better way to follow up a ski day [...]

West Coast Session 5 Day 3

Day 3: The sky has cleared up again, after a windy and snowy day 2. Perfect kickers and a couple inches of fresh were irresistible  motivation factors for the entire crew. The ARC is getting busy: Steve is back big time after his injury, as you can see. Alex Martini made it over all the [...]

Recap of day one from West Coast Session 5 at Timberline resort, Mt. Hood, OR. By Evan Heath.
That’s right, we started WCS off with the public day this year. Until now the event has ended on a Saturday, making that day the logical choice to invite the public. This year we moved to an early-week schedule, Sunday thru Wednesday, and opted to kick things off with the public jam for once. The [...]
