“In A Shot In The Dark we follow Travis Rice to Chile for one of his most scenic and formidable adventures yet – snowboarding in front of a total solar eclipse. Rice and renowned photographer Tim Zimmerman connect with local snowboarder Manuel Diaz and heli guide Greg Harms to head into the Andes to scout the region, build a kicker out of sedimentary rock and snow, and wait for totality to chase the photo of their lifetimes.”

With all the hubbub about the upcoming solar eclipse, it reminded me of the time Travis Rice journeyed to South America for a super rare opportunity to film a snowboard trick during the totality of a solar eclipse. It may not have gone exactly to plan but the crew did get a sick eclipse experience out of their trip to Pisco Elqui, Chile. Wonder if anyone is planning on a similar project for April 8th? We will have to wait and see:
