Gettin the Shot

Today we begin sorting through all the pictures we took this weekend. We have over 1,000 to go through! We do almost all of our own photography throughout the season in order to have shots for next year's brochures, website, advertising, etc. Our shot list includes- ski & snowboard action (trees, groomers, powder, jumps), ski & snowboard lessons, lifestyle (i.e. hanging out on the deck), groups, lodging, terrain park, and lots of smiles. It's not uncommon to take 500 pictures and get 5 you will actually use.

We also hosted a professional photo shoot last week in which we'll have a few hundred pictures to whittle down to 20 useables. If you were here on Friday, you got to see the incredible view of the valley full of clouds. It was perfectly sunny on top of the mountain and it looked like you were in an airplane. I'v never seen it so thick and stay for so long. It was perfect for some of the shots we needed.

For those of you that competed in the Freestyle Fest this weekend, we hope to have at least one picture of each of you in the Photo Gallery at soon. Just give us a minute to get through all the photos. We will also put together a video this week that will include everyone. More about that when it's ready...
