Ski Photo Competition

Published: 02/23/2009

After a successful first run in 2008 the second annual Ski Salt Lake Shootout got underway Monday at the four resorts in Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons. The contest brings local and global ski photographers to the canyons and pairs them with Utah-based athletes for four-days of skiing and shooting.

Last year's winner Grant Gunderson had his image from 2008 turned into a three-page layout cover on a major magazine. Ski Salt Lake feels the coverage created from providing cash prizes in five categories - Powder, Big Mountain, Air, Mountain Lifestyle and City Lifestyle - is worth the $1,000 awarded to category winners and the $2,000 paid to the grand prize winner.

Photogs invited this year include: Grant Gunderson,Court Leve, Mark Fisher, Ilja Herb,
Justin Cash, Ryan Creary, Alexa Miller and Drew Stoecklein.

Local skiers include Julian Carr, Jamie Pierre, Cody Barnhill, Jamey Parks, Caroline Gleich and Suzanne Graham have been selected as models for the competition.  The event runs through Thursday.
