Over the winter I had the great experience of working for the Alpine Meadows/Homewood Mountain Resort marketing department. I’d always secretly wanted to work at a ski hill, but to be able to write and shoot while I was at it instead of cleaning toilets was icing on the cake. Below are photos from powder days, parties, races and competitions that I got to shoot over the course of the winter.

Fun at the Icebar.

Take the Lake got snowed out, like so many other things in March, but we had a rail jam anyway.
The Red Bull Schlittentag was an insane sledding event. If you zoom in on the flying piece in the upper-right hand part of the photo, I think that sums it up.
