The Ski Salt Lake Shootout is taking place at Alta, Brighton, Snowbird and Solitude this week. And as an athlete in the competition, I've been spending almost every waking second doing one of the following things: skiing, hiking, refueling (eating) or sleeping. That's really all I have time to do, given how much shooting needs to be done. Everyone participating in this year’s Ski Salt Lake Shootout lucked out with more than a foot of fresh snow greeting them on day one. Today we went to Snowbird Ski & Summer Resort and witnessed firsthand why the term, “bluebird” originated there. Our crew consists of myself, photographer Steve Lloyd, fellow skier Kevin Brower, and snowboarder Jake Lawlor. Check-out some behind the scenes photos below!
