Places where the focus must remain as intense 6 or 8 seconds in as it was on the lip. Things comin’ at mach speed, maybe the place you wanted to be was a few feet over there or the snow wasn’t quite what you expected. The mind must calm as you slip deeper into the zone or else the last half goes bad at speed. Anjen Herndon sticks it on Big T falls. Photo: Patrick Clayton
