Pray for snow...

...in the Wasatch!

After crossing the road late one afternoon in Little cottonwood canyon, it began to snow.  It snowed and  snowed some more and would not stop snowing.  Large flakes floated out of the sky touching down on aspen trees, chalets, cars, and completely blanketing our photography equipment.  I was smiling from ear to ear.   It was the 2010.  It was the week of the Salt Lake shootout and we were getting pounded!

It's January 2012.  The snow is coming!  I think.

(The 2010 Salt Lake shootout was an unbelievable week for both athletes and photographers pushing the limits each day to create some spectacular ski photography.  I felt fortunate to be around world class athletes and photographers and lucky enough to take the best of show award at the end of competition.  About the winning image:  It was our first day and first run of the day.  After a solid hike up the Fantasy Ridge cliffs above Solitude Ski resort, Pro skier Jason West decided to launch a 60 footer just to warm things up a bit.  He stomped it.   That image would win both "Best Air" and "Best of Show" for the shootout. )
