Catch Up W. Scotty

What have you been up to recently?

I’m currently here in Anchorage taking part in a race called Arctic Man where you team up with a snowmobiler (who will be my Dad for me) and you start at the top of the mountain, you race down and meet up with your snowmobile partner in the flats and they tow you for a couple of miles along the flats and up this next mountain then you race down. It’s a pretty big event here in Alaska, I’ve never done it before but something like 15,000 people will be there.

We heard something about another Art of Flight movie, will you be involved in this one again?

Yeah, Travis (Rice) is doing another two year project with Brainfarm. I’m not involved in it yet but I hope to jump on a couple of trips, kind of like I did in the last movie, I’ll just track Travis down wherever the hell he is.

Do you have any other future projects planned at all?

Yeah I’m going to be doing my own video projects next year, just to kind of push out content and build up my instagram and facebook following. Basically leaking a load of stuff out through that and then put up a movie at the end of the year, kind of like the film Torstein Horgmo recently created. You know some action, some comedy, I just want it to be entertaining.

We saw you pushing the pipe recently with this double pipe contest (where two half pipes are side by side, creating a spine in the middle)?

Yeah, that was a first of its kind. It was a pretty cool event, kind of like a work of art, those guys put together snow park technology that’s pretty amazing. For the event you just go down and choose your own line, transferring the spine where possible and using some of the rails and wallrides they put in place.

We saw a photo of you with a neck brace on?

Yeah I got a little hurt on that, I was just checking myself out to be sure but I hit the lip and then bounced flat to the bottom. I shouldn’t have really thrown that picture online because I was all ok in the end, but I guess it was kinda funny.
