Description

Aspen Highlands Maroon Bowl on Closing Day, 2009. Ed Armstrong Speed-Fly's Maroon Bowl. Speed-Flying is like paragliding, but the kite is much smaller and therefore the speed is much higher. You use skiis to get enough speed for takeoff. Its a pretty radical and exciting sport only practiced by a few.

Maroon Bowl is on the backside of the Fantastic Highlands Bowl at Aspen Highlands Ski Resort. It is in the backcountry and has significant risks including a river to cross at the bottom, but the turns are sweet.

    That is an awesome pano. Did you shoot the scene and then capture the paragliders and composite? Or, did you shoot the scene once?
