Filming in Aspen for Vital Films and Armada Skis

Aerial Filmworks shot aerials with Matt Hobbs of Vital Films and Corey Stanton of Armada Skis for a new film on Torin Yater-Wallace coming out in Fall 2012. Doug Sheffer and DBS Helicopters provided the excellent Bell 206 Long Ranger for the filming sessions. Doug’s local knowledge and relationships were integral to the success of the project. Aspen Ski Company provided access to the X-Games park immediately after the conclusion of the competition.
