It was very good to have Sammy back this year to join our team for RUIN AND ROSE. Here are some words from Scott Gaffney:
Sammy was just a kid when we last shot with him in Seven Sunny Days (2007), but he’s grown from a pre-eminent park skier into one of the most rounded, dynamic skiers in the game. The kid with the flawless switch 10 and trademark poke has definitely matured, skiing on tech bindings and carrying his skins even on heli days, ready to whip them out a moment’s notice just because. He’s ridiculously playful yet he makes things look effortless. And he’s always keen to give ‘er, bringing a great attitude along with a hell of a work ethic. Let’s just say we were stoked to have him back, and even though he joined us for just one trip, he sure made it count.
