Freeskier Magazine | The Gap

Skier Ari Delashmutt airs over the Shevlin Bridge at Shevlin Park in Bend Oregon.
The water here in Tumalo Creek is cold, so cold in fact that it actually freezes from the ground up. Wading in this frigid water wasn't really pleasant, even though I had fishing waders on I became dangerously close to hypothermic. Towards the end of the day I started to loose the function of all my limbs. Nonetheless, Ari Delashmutt stepped up to the plate with this really scary Japan Air over the creek. It was rewarding day in the end, that's type two fun for you. 

Found in the 2015 backcountry issue of Freeskier Magazine.
