The Third Annual Ski Salt Lake Shootout Is On!

Published: 12/03/2009
Salt Lake City (December 2009) - Riding the overwhelming success of countless published gallery images and magazine covers, the Ski Salt Lake Shootout is back for its third consecutive year, pairing professional ski photographers and local professional athletes to battle it out for cash prizes and bragging rights as they attempt to capture the magic of the Cottonwood Canyon resorts and Ski Salt Lake through stunning imagery February 21-27, 2010.

Ski Salt Lake and its four resort partners-Alta, Brighton, Snowbird and Solitude-are pairing six of the world's most recognized ski photographers with the best local big-mountain skiers in a peak-packed venue, the famed Wasatch Mountains, that receives more than 500 inches of "The Greatest Snow on Earth" each year. Two coveted positions will also be filled by local photographers poised to break onto the scene with their undiscovered talent behind the lens. As an added bonus for shooting last year's Grand Prize image, photographer Ilja Herb is being invited back to defend his title.

Ski Salt Lake is pleased to announce Subaru as the official car of the 2010 Ski Salt Lake Shootout, joining long-time partner, Dynastar/Lange. Additionally, Ski Salt Lake is partnering with backcountry/freeskiing powerhouse Black Diamond Equipment in promoting the Shootout and Black Diamond's Big Lepowski event.

Visit here for contest details, entry guidelines, past Shootout winners, testimonials from past participants and video footage of the event.

Ski Salt Lake promotes Salt Lake and the Cottonwood Canyon resorts of Alta, Snowbird, Brighton and Solitude as the ideal winter vacation destination unmatched in accessibility, variety and snow quality. Located just 40 minutes from the Salt Lake City International Airport, Salt Lake's resorts average 500+ inches of snow each year and collectively offer more than 7,500 skiable acres.
